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.

Daytona. Visit: http://classiccarpictures.us/
The Daytona was an aerodynamically enhanced version of the Charger built to
compete on such high-speed superspeedways as Talladega and, yes, Daytona.
Those enhancements consisted of a longer, sharklike nose, blisters on the
top of the front fenders to allow the car to settle down over its tires, a
flush-mounted rear window in place of the regular Charger's tunneled
backlight and, of course, the tall rear wing to generate downforce in the
clean air up there.
Keep in mind that a production as large as Fast & Furious 6 needs multiple
examples of every onscreen car to keep filming no matter what the
contingency. And particular cars need to be built in particular ways to
deal with particular stunts or appearances. So this isn't about just one
Daytona, but seven built to portray Toretto's fictional machine. Three
The Non-Daytona Daytona
With its extremely long nose and ridiculously high rear wing, an original
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona would be ill suited to cinematic stunt work, and
at more than six figures for a good example, way too expensive. So picture
car coordinator Dennis McCarthy built a variation on the Daytona with a
slightly shorter nose, a slightly less elevated rear wing and slammed it
over a set of custom-made 18-inch wheels wearing 275/40R18 and 315/40R18
In fact, the entire front clip of Toretto's Daytona is one piece of
fiberglass fabricated at McCarthy's. Compared to a production '69 Daytona,
the Toretto Daytona's nose is almost 12 inches shorter overall and somewhat
taller in profile. And the movie car's nose has fixed headlights under
Plexiglas covers instead of the original's pop-up units.
"It would have been too much hassle with hidden headlights," explained
McCarthy. "One would be up and the other down, so they wouldn't match
shot-to-shot. Or they wouldn't work at all. Plus we didn't want to have to
fix them every time the nose was damaged during filming. So we got rid of
The tail wing has been brought down by about 12 inches for a sleeker
appearance. But because the wing is lower, the trunk lid now hits the
bottom of the cross-piece when it's fully open. Fortunately, there's no
scene in the movie where Dom needs to ferry luggage to the airport or bring
home enough mulch to plant a garden.
The most impressive features on Toretto's Daytona, however, are its perfect
stance, glorious maroon paint and slick details like the shaved rain
gutters. For movie cars, these Daytonas are particularly well finished. Not
showcar detailed, but dang nice.
Built To Go
To simplify construction of all the film cars, Dennis McCarthy's shop
standardized several mechanical pieces across several cars to facilitate
servicing and the availability of spares. So Toretto's Daytona, like
several other vehicles in the film, is powered by GM's 6.2-liter LS3 V8
rated at 430 horsepower. Behind that on
most of the Daytonas is a GM turbo 400
three-speed automatic transmission. The power finally leads to a Ford
9-inch solid-axle rear end. Different gear ratios were installed in
different Daytonas depending upon what each was going to do during filming.
And at least one Daytona was built with a four-speed manual transmission.
Suspensionwise, the front end uses Reilly Motorsports' "AlterKtion"
coil-over system in place of the stock torsion bars, and the tail is held
up by Reilly's "triangulated four-bar" system, which mixes coil springs and
five links together. The braking systems use Brembo calipers at all four
corners, with a second set of calipers for the rear wheels hooked up to a
separate braking circuit so stunt drivers could induce some sideways
attitude when it was needed.
For a Mopar addict, everything is super-cool and awesome. If it weren't for
that dang GM engine and transmission. And Ford rear end.

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.

132774 / 2008 Ford Mustang 427R
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/czgvjbj
This brash 2008 Roush Mustang 427R is the ultimate
embodiment of decades of racing knowledge packed into an unapologetic,
Officially tagged as 08-467 by its dash plaque, this Mustang is car number 467 of only 679
2008 427R coupes built by Roush Performance. Fully optioned from Ford and
upfitted for even more show and go at Roush Performance, this 427R is one
of only 108 Torch Red 427Rs produced in 2008, one of only 89 Torch Red 2008
427Rs to be equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and one of only 19
Torch Red 427R 5-speeds to wear Matte Black decals.
The body is 100% straight with no history of accidents or damage of any
kind, and a close look down the fuselage reveals not so much as a dent or
ding anywhere. Roush's high quality paint and bodywork blend invisibly with
the cars tight and glossy factory panels; and overall, this Mustang conveys a premium sense of
collectability that, when combined with its spectacular performance,
creates a timeless modern classic.
Created as a turnkey package for enthusiasts who want a reliably engineered
Mustang which unlocks the
full performance potential of Fords 4.6 liter V8, the 427R utilizes an
intercooled Supercharger to crank out
435 horsepower and
400 lb./ft. of torque. Roush's patented "Roushcharger" is an Eaton style
blower that sits atop the engine and exhales through an air-to-liquid Intercooler that helps manage
on-track temperatures. In front of the blower, you'll find a custom Roush
air induction system and below the blower you'll find a custom Roush
Performance intake manifold. Despite Fords 4.6 liter being a very strong
engine as is, a few upgrades were implemented to deal with the rigors of
racing including a beefier cooling system, a recalibrated ECM and a Roush
Performance strut tower brace that reinforces the front end and improves
steering precision. On the radiator support you'll find a Roush Performance
badge that lists the cars power output and verifies that this is number 8
out of 467 427R Mustangs
built. And on the passenger's side inner fender you'll find a satin metal
plate with the signature of the guy who assembled the car.
The D2C platform is a very capable foundation which, with the added power
from Roush Performance, makes this track ready Mustang a true force to be reckoned
with. Behind the engine, a factory 5-speed manual drives a rugged Ford
8.8-inch rear end which houses a Detroit TrueTrac differential with road
course appropriate 3.55 gears. That stout drivetrain combines with a Roush
tuned front strut and three link rear suspension to give the car long legs
at the big end and good power out of the corners. Braking is handled by
factory equipped front and rear discs that are aided by Fords standard
anti-lock system; and the cars killer Exhaust note is provided by custom stainless
steel catbacks which are exclusive to Roush vehicles. At the corners,
fantastic looking chrome Roush Performance 18 inch forged alloy wheels are
secured by chrome lug nuts and wear super sticky 275/40 Cooper Zeon 2XS
Inside the cockpit of this super cool Mustang, Roush Performance
implemented subtle but tasteful upgrades which are immediately noticeable
from both an appearance and performance standpoint. The seats are amazing
looking black buckets which feature red stitching and bright red center
pieces with black Jack Roush signatures. In front of the driver, custom
Roush Performance gauges feature Jack Roush's signature below white
readouts that are lit in red. Beside the driver, a Roush branded short
throw shifter features a black cue ball style Roush shift knob, and blends
perfectly into the center console. At the floor, Roush Performance pedals
hang over like-new black carpet which is protected by spotless factory
floor mats and bordered by satin finish Roush sill plates. And behind the
cockpit, the trunk is still in its completed factory state and looks as
good as the day the car was assembled.
If you're one of those guys who likes to go tear up some pavement on the
weekends, this Roush Mustang was built for you! Call,

132786 / 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle 300
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d2lrkbw
After a $75K restoration, this 1968 Chevelle 300 received 147 out of 150
points at the 22nd Annual Mid-Atlantic Chevelle Show/ACES Northeast
Regional and took home the 2010 Directors Choice Award.
This unassuming 1968 Chevelle 300 sedan wears an all original California
body under a cool coat of Island Teal and correct gloss black paint. During
an extensive 2010 nut and bolt restoration the car was completely
disassembled, placed on a rotisserie to ensure maximum straightness, and
expertly detailed to provide a show winning body which displays better than
factory panel alignment throughout. Once the body was fully prepped, layers
of Island Teal and gloss black paint were applied between extensive color
sandings and topped with a thick clearcoat that has been thoroughly wet
sanded and buffed to the excellent shine you see today.
Glance under this Chevelles mirror-slick teal hood and niceties like GM
Performance Parts aluminum heads, a modern HEI distributor and red GM
Performance Parts plug wires begin to unravel the cars biggest secret;
you're actually looking at a 502 cubic inch GM Performance Parts crate
motor which creates 9.6 to 1 compression, and makes 502 horsepower and 567 lb./ft.
of torque! At the top of the motor a chrome air filter which is topped by a
pristine 427 turbo-Jet decal, feeds air
into an 850 Holley carburetor which receives fuel from a high performance
electronic fuel pump. That air/fuel mixture then travels into a CNC port
matched dual plane aluminum intake which sits between GMPP aluminum heads
that are fitted with 110cc combustion chambers, stainless steel valves and
stamped steel rocker arms. Once inside the block, the mixture is compressed
by forged aluminum pistons that are connected to forged steel and shot-peed
rods which are spun by a forged steel crank. The resulting gases are then
sent through fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds with the help of a hydraulic
roller cam and GMPP Dyno tuned induction and
What good would a killer big block be without a great chassis and
suspension to back it up? Behind the thundering 502, a tough M21 Muncie
4-speed transmission sends power to a tried and true GM 12 bolt
Posi-traction rear end with stout 3.55 gears. That strip-ready drivetrain
is held in by a correctly rebuilt suspension which features correct spiral
shocks, correct power brakes and correct manual steering for that raw,
vintage street racer feel. The bottom of this Chevelle has been
over-restored to the same high standards as its exterior panels and engine
compartment. Accordingly, the frame was sanded and completely repainted,
the floors were layered in the same glossy Island Teal as the exterior, and
a slew of correct chalk marks and correct stickers adorn the components
from front to back. To complete the look, date-code correct 14 inch steel
wheels were fully detailed in Island Teal basecoat/clearcoat and wear a
pristine set of dog dish hubcaps inside of authentic looking G70 Firestone
During restoration, this Chevelle 300 was equipped with a great looking NOS
black interior that, despite being sparse by even 60s standards, is
comfortable and well designed. The vinyl bench seats are in excellent shape
and show little to no signs of wear, and the upper dash exhibits no fading
or warping. In the middle of the dash, you'll find a NOS AM radio, and
below the dash, a durable rubber mat frames a black and chrome Muncie
shifter. The striped Chevelle 300 door panels are free of nicks and feature
bright chrome handles for the doors and windows, and correct armrests for
the front seat passengers. At the top of the car, a tight, fade-free
headliner frames a functioning dome light, and in front of the driver, a
retro-fitted GM rally wheel features a bright wood rim, spotless satin
spokes and a bright, colorful horn button. In the cars fully restored
trunk, you'll find a correct mat, correct decklid decals and fifth fully
restored Island Teal wheel that's complete with a fifth Firestone redline

combination of style and performance, this '68 300 is your car. Call, click

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
