132399 / 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c32lvl4 Here is a crown jewel of any collection: A restored, clean, numbers matching, all original sheetmetal Dodge Charger Daytona. A product of the 1960's, the Daytona stands head and shoulders up on nearly every other car built in its time in stature, looks and desirability. Outside you'll find V2 Hemi Orange Poly in its correct shade, laid down expertly and rubbed out to a glass smooth finish. Like many other Chrysler colors, there's a luminescent quality thanks to very fine gold metal flake throughout, and it's dazzling. Inferior paint jobs and older restorations are more often dull and without the gold glow, and the difference is amazing. The white stripe on the tail, and the correct, original road wheels and Goodyear redlines give the car a very classy, sleek and unified look. The interior has a nice mix of new reproduction and original parts. New Legendary seat covers on the rebuilt seats, a new headliner and new carpeting augment the original, un-cracked dash pad and excellent original door pads and panels. New sill plates add shine along with new door handles and re-chromed armrest bases. The original center console shifter wears a fluted shift knob, the gauges were refaced, while new dash bezels run from one end to the other. We added a very cool restored wood grain sport steering wheel as a finishing touch. All switches and buttons work as they should, and the car's a pleasure to drive with the smooth, light power steering and reassuring brakes working with the high torque mill up front. The trunk floor is original and clean, and is covered by a new mat. Look underneath to find floor pans that were completely stripped and painted black during the restoration, along with new Exhaust, fuel and brake systems. This is a car which drives as well as it looks. The engine sits in a restored bay with all of its original parts, as well as all new mechanicals and other wear items. That's the original wiper motor, air cleaner, carburetor, Exhaust manifolds and more. There's a reproduction battery, new wire set, new reproduction heater and radiator hoses along with the original radiator and new battery cables. There's an electronic ignition system and a reproduction ballast resistor on the firewall connected to a reproduction engine wiring harness. The car starts and runs better than new, shifts well and tracks straight. In the collector car market the Daytona needs no introduction: It's the millionaire playboy in the center of attention. It's the platinum bar on top of a pile of tarnished silver coins. Few cars are as popular as they are polarizing, and that simply adds to the car's cache. Beautiful in execution, numbers matching, original sheet metal, fully inspected, Galen documented and running flawlessly this car is a topper in nearly any collection on earth.

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
