#s match real deal Daytona. Listed in the registry- car #404 of
just 503 made. Has XX in vin, has build sheet and original fender
tag. Has special order along the bottom of the build sheet.
Original rust free metal, sold new new at Macon Dodge, GA. We have
a registration showing it still lived in Georgia. Interestingly a
woman named Barbara Walters owned it. In 1983 she sold it to Hal
Breen in Paradise Arizona. Much more recently it underwent a
rotisserie restoration to factory specs by Steve Fox in Louisville
for a high profile Mopar collector.
The Daytona was the first car to break 200 mph in NASCAR racing.
That was accomplished with the help of aerodynamics. A metal nose
cone, flush mount rear windows, stainless windshield pillar covers
and fender air extractors scoops help it slice through the air.
Rear wing keeps the rear tires on the ground. In 1971 NASCAR banned
"aerocars" because the were winning a stunning number of races.
EXTERIOR: High quality fit and finish. The metal is amazingly
clean. The factory spotwelds are still showing along the bottom 1/4
panel lips. Panels are arrow straight, they fit square and flush.
Painted single stage paint like they were in 1969, the color is
true. The paint is slick as glass. I did not see a flaw. The jambs
are slick. The headlights open and close. Any trim- stainless,
chrome, tail panel is all in excellent shape. New weatherstrips.
The wheels are rare Kelsey Hayes "recall" cast wheels on redline
tires. An interesting side note. Those fender scoops were an
illegal modification right in plain site. According to Nascar rules
the fenders could only be modified for tire clearance, so that is
the reason for them being there- not so. They actually releived air
pressure that caused lift.
INTERIOR: Restored like new from floor to ceiling. Of course the
upholstery and carpet is excellent, but also the dash area is
professionally restored. The chrome bezels and knobs sparkle,
lenses are crystal clear, gauges look new. Has a new dash pad,
factory radio is in the proper whole, nothing's cut or broken. The
headliner is new and remember it's a special headliner and rear
deck because the rear window extends further back. The console's
restored. Door panels are new, even the uppers are rubber not the
reproduction plastic. Even the handles, armrest bases, window
cranks are new. Every inch of the interior is excellent- steering
wheel, mirror, glovebox, and even the seatbelts are restored. Open
the door and the interior lights all work.

completely rebuilt, has a nice sounding idle. The engine
compartment is completely restored and detailed to factory new. Has
correct Mopar hoses, clamps and radiator. Has Mopar spark plug

orange. We do have the original fender tag kept in the office for
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: All clean metal painted orange. Both jacks are

NASCAR rules say a certain # of cars must be made for the public to
purchase. Even a top brass guy at Mopar said "this was they ugliest
car he had ever seen!" Imagine buying one of these cars in 1969 you
would most likely be laughed at on the street. Well, nobody is
laughing now. Because of its rarity, historical significance and
outrageous design it is one of the most sought after muscle cars on
the planet. Only a lucky few will be able to own one, everyone else
will wish they owned one. I couldn't imagine there is one in better
condition then this one. Now is your chance to be one of the lucky
