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.

Mr Pudelski would be an excellent steward for the car owning it for 10 years and putting just a little more than 14,000 miles on its odometer. The car was known throughout the local area, and in the mid-to-late 1970s, well-known Mopar collector Tim Wellborn and his father Doug Wellborn had it on their radar screen for purchase. It took more than one attempt of them showing up with truck and trailer to purchase the car, but finally in 1979, Elmo agreed to sell it to them. They would become the long-term owners of the car retaining it for 26 years until 2005. The car remained in excellent original condition upon their purchase with matching-numbers, still retaining three of its four original tires and all of its original paint. The Wellborn’s interest was initially captivated by the originality of the car, having never been painted or damaged in any way. They noted that the paint was not adhering well to the nose and rear window plug and painted those areas as well as some other portions of the car. This car was driven very little, and it spent the majority of their ownership on loan for display in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame & Museum, next to the Talladega Speedway. After sitting on Museum display for so many years, the car needed some attention, and the Wellborns, who were busy with several other car projects, decided to part with it in 2005. It was purchased by a friend and broker who went through the car to ensure it was fully operational again. In the process, he removed the three original tires from the car as they had slight cracks on the sidewalls. In 2006, it was purchased by its current owner who was drawn to the originality of the car and its “survivor-like” qualities along with solid history. At that time, an Exhaustive search had been underway for a very original fully numbers-matching Daytona. Upon purchase there were several items that the current owner wanted taken care of, and he shipped the car to noted Daytona expert Roger Gibson in Missouri. After conferring with Mr. Gibson, the owner felt the only way he would feel the car was up to world-class standards was to commission a no-expense-spared restoration, this direction was heavily debated due to the originality of the car. Mr. Gibson was advised that the car needed to be done to the highest standards of authenticity and correctness. The restoration began in September of 2007 and would be underway for the next 30 months, no detail was left unattended. In March of 2010, the car emerged from Gibson’s shop as a “top of the marque,” world-class example in every way. Since its restoration, it has been started and run regularly but has traveled fewer than 100 miles. It shows just more than 16,000 original miles and has been kept in the owner's private display facility in the strictest of climate-controlled conditions. It is accompanied by its original sales copy to Mr. Pudelski, original full broadcast sheet in excellent condition, its original factory fender tag with decoding paperwork done for Mr. Wellborn by a noted Mopar expert, both original factory jacks, etc. This car represents the highest possible level of condition and authenticity in a matching-numbers 1969 Dodge Daytona and would be an excellent addition to any world-class Mopar enthusiast’s collection. #MecumDallas





Concept Dodge Charger and Daytona
I bare no hatred towards the current Charger, I've got tons of respect for it. With that in mind I just wanted to have some fun and do my own version based off the old cars and give it a modern spin like what was done with the Challenger. This is all done for fun, I'm not out to start flame wars or anything. Opinions and criticism are most welcome. With that said this is my concept of at Charger and Daytona it's largely based off of the 69 & 70 with optional grills for both years. It's been designed in a way to support being put on the current Challenger chassis the dimensions of it are almost the same it's just a little longer in the front and back. The interior for the moment is almost the same as the current Charger. Some things are still subject to change like the backup lights being in the tail lights I might put them in the body. This is a fully modeled car with interior engine bay and trunk, I started designing it last year about this time on my laptop (pc had just died). The base design was done in about 5 days modeling the interior, motor and other details took a little longer and I spent the rest of the time tinkering with the body shape. The music is from the site danosongs(dot)com First track is I feel You Second track is Black box in the Ground Credit for the music goes of him. Anyway this is my concept for the new Charger and Daytona, opinions and criticism welcome, just keep it constructive. : )
