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

This 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona is a clean, frame up restored trophy winner
which wraps a numbers matching drivetrain and all original sheetmetal in a
highly desirable color combination.
From its extended nose to its functional, two foot tall rear wing, this
investment grade Daytona features an exceptionally straight, all original
body that was perfected over a multi-year restoration. Once the cars panels
had been thoroughly massaged and aligned to better than factory standards,
a slick coat of correct Chrysler Bright Blue Metallic was topped with a
correct white Daytona stripe and buffed to the glass-smooth finish you see
Fully sorted and ready to both show and go, the 375 horsepower, 440 cubic inch
Magnum V8 under this Daytonas hood has been completely rebuilt to factory
specifications. At the top of the motor, a correct Carter 4-barrel
carburetor mixes air from a satin black air filter with fuel from fresh
stainless fuel lines. Below that carburetor, correct Hemi Orange paint
coats the block from intake to oil pan, and correct cast iron Exhaust manifolds make quick work of spent
gases. At the front of the motor, a correct points distributor sends fire
through reproduction Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires, and a correct
26 inch heavy duty radiator sends water through reproduction Chrysler hoses
and era correct clamps. The big RB block sits in an expertly detailed
engine bay which features both new wear items and correct accessories like
a reproduction Mopar red cap battery, a correct master cylinder, a correct
Chrysler overflow tank and a complete set of correct decals. Raise the hood
and the orange block with its chrome and stainless details looks great
against the Bright Blue Metallic engine bay. Turn the key and the car
springs to life, pulls just as hard as when it was new and sounds amazing.
Like its Magnum V8, this Chargers numbers matching A727 Torqueflite 3-speed
automatic has been completely rebuilt and works flawlessly. Power flows
from that stalwart transmission to a Chrysler 8.75 rear end which displays
correct chalk marks and rides on a rebuilt leaf spring suspension. At the
front of the car, a rebuilt torsion bar suspension benefits from correct
power steering and makes good use of a thick factory sway bar. And at the
corners of the car, red manual drum brakes assure fade-free stops while
providing an unmatched vintage feel. Despite its appearance as a
traditional body on frame muscle car, the Daytona is actually a unitary
monocoque design which aids in both stability and weight. As with the body
of the car, 'clean' is the name of the game down below; solid original
floor pans feature factory correct blue overspray, a new fuel tank and fuel
lines ensure safety and reliability, and a mandrel bent stainless Exhaust system benefits from an H-pipe cross
over and roars through two factory replacement mufflers. All of this Mopar
goodness rolls on a traditional set of great looking 14 inch Magnum 500
wheels which wear fresh F70-14 Goodyear Speedway wide tread whitewall
Inside this awesome Dodge, a correct code C6D blue vinyl interior carries
enough visual sizzle to match the cars outrageous sheet metal. According to
restoration photos, the seats were completely rebuilt and today, display no
significant signs of wear. At the top of the cabin, a new blue headliner is
tight and stain-free, and at the bottom of the cabin, new carpeting sits
under color coordinated, "Dodge" branded mats and a floor mounted fire
extinguisher. The un-cracked dash pad and excellent door panels look as
fresh as when they rolled out of a Chrysler assembly plant and feature
rebuilt gauges, a Dodge Solid State AM radio, new emblems and new handles.
Between the seats, a correct console wears functional courtesy lights,
vibrant wood applique and a new chrome shifter. And in front of the driver,
a traditional blue steering wheel holds a silver horn bar behind a classic
Dodge fratzog emblem.
With a smooth, numbers matching powertrain, all original sheet metal and
enough visual flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome Mopar is
about as close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get! Call, click or

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Wipeout
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.
Just Arrived - The 1986 Chrysler New Yorker
It just came today...
My dreams have finally been fullfilled!!!!!!!!
This car also has auto level air ride suspension!
Note: It only has 52,800 miles on it. The mileage on the instrument
cluster was from a replacement one.
Also, the radio is not original. I would like to find the original one and
install it instead.
Long Live the K-Car

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.
