Step back in time a quarter of a century to the 1982 Chrysler Car Club Convention held at the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan. Check out a F6 Spring Green 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona as it loses control on one of the smaller banked curves at the Proving Grounds. There was a happy ending though as the car merely spun out down on to the lower apron of the banking.

Test Drive 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 V8
It's not often that we get to look at a car like this one. It's an
original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This beast is one of only 503
Daytona's built and it's in truly immaculate condition. It's still powered
by the original 440 V8 4 BBL, factory rated at 375 HP and 480 Lb-Ft of
torque. This is one of the famous winged cars, that forced rule changes in
Nascar after breaking all the speed records at the time. It's painted in
the correct T5 Copper paint and it's riding on a beautiful set of Magnum
500 chrome rims, with white letter tires. This is definitely one of the
most collectible Mopar's of all time and one of the most sought after
muscle cars of any type. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the
same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are
different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're
the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies,
cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some
of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States.
Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological
marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason
and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.
Vintage Test Drive of a 1969 Hemi Dodge Daytona Charger in Quebec Canada
This is a rare video of a 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger with a 426 Hemi engine
being tested flat-out at Mont Tremblant in Quebec Canada by test driver
Jacques Duval. Many people do not realize that the infamous Daytona Charger
was actually more 70 Charger than 69 as it used the fenders and hood from
the upcoming 70 Charger.
'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #42: 1969 Dodge Daytona
This '69 Charger Daytona in the Brothers Collection is one of 502 built,
and 1 of 294 with the 440 engine. With its aerodynamic nose piece and
towering rear wing, this is definitely the most outlandish design from the
muscle car era. But those features weren't added to shock and sell, they
were shaped to be kings of the Nascar Super Speedways. In this episode of
Muscle Car Of The Week, we'll tell you all about it
