Here's a car that you don't see many of roaming the streets, this one is a special package with lots of tasteful custom touches throughout. This is a one owner local car that was purchased new from K&M Dodge, just a mile down the road from our dealership.
Our client and only owner of this car, owns a reputable local body shop, so to say that the body of this Charger is in nice condition is an understatement. It is excellent! Body panels line up just right, the paint has a deep shine, and all trim pieces whether big or small are in great condition. The light and dark blue combination that you see on the exterior of this car is the factory correct combination, and the two tone color combination breaks up the long body of this limited edition Charger Daytona. Custom Billet wheels that mimic the Chrysler Rallye wheels of the early '70's were commissioned by our client, and built by Circle Racing Wheels of Fresno, California. Finished in 18”x 8.5” front and 18”x 9.5” in the rear, they are wrapped in sticky Nitto tires. With that 496 under the hood, you need a bigger contact patch with the pavement.
Finished in the factory blue tone, the interior is very well kept. A number of tasteful modifications to improve the driver's ability to monitor that V8 under the hood …..have been made to the interior of the car. Numerous AutoMeter Gauges have been strategically placed on the dashboard and center console, a new Grant steering wheel was added, Pioneer stereo components were installed, and a Hurst shifter has been grafted in to the custom center console. Other than those things, the interior is original - comfy seats, original faux wood trim, door panels, even the chronometer/clock is mounted on the dash - angled at the driver.
Under the hood, mounted in a neat engine bay is a 496ci V8 engine that was custom built by Hughes Racing of Washington, Illinois. The large displacement engine is mated to a HD 727 automatic transmission, with a 3.91:1 Sure Grip 8 ¾ rear axle. A host of performance and aftermarket parts are found on the custom power plant - MSD Ignition and Distributor, Demon 850 Carburetor, TTI Ceramic Headers, 3” TTI Dual Exhaust, Gear Vendors Overdrive. The car also features power steering, and power disc brakes all around.
This is an awesome example of a very straight, very well cared for original owner car. It's finished to a high standard inside and out, and features a drive train that was built using premium parts. You just don't find many one owner classics around, especially a slightly customized car that is done right. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
