This exceptional and completely restored Charger Daytona XX29L9B386542 is one of 503 examples made in 1969, the build date on this particular Daytona is 5/20/69. This Daytona came from the factory powered with a 440ci 4bbl engine, 4 speed, 3:55 Dana differential, manual drum brakes and manual steering. The car was purchased new at Waco Dodge in Waco, Texas, and after spending many years unused in the second owner’s garage it was then was acquired by the third existing owner in 2016 and brought to Florida.
When purchased in 2016 the car was equipped with a 1970 440ci no vin warranty motor. During the restoration the car received a 1969 426ci Hemi engine that displays VIN number 9B414639. That VIN number confirms the 426 Hemi originated from the factory in a 1969 Daytona equipped with a 426 hemi 4 speed with VIN number XX29J9B414639. To ensure factory hemi specs the K frame and motor mounts were changed to the correct factory 426 Hemi application requirements. The hemi was then sent to NC for rebuild and dyno by engine builder Tim Petty with Moonshine Racing. The glove box door displays signatures of both legendary engine builders Tim Petty and his father Maurice Petty (RIP).
The car has completed a five year very thorough rotisserie restoration with every component restored or replaced new, not a single component has been overlooked. When the car was acquired in 2016 the body was still in fairly solid condition. But regardless of good condition the body was completely dissembled to the sub-frame and down to the minimum of skeleton. The process consisted of the deepest metal restoration and re-fabrication that a B-Body Chrysler can receive, along with the nose which was restored in metal and not fiberglass. The excellent metal work and factory duplicate welding was done at one of the highest quality Daytona/Superbird metal restoration shops in the US. The paint process started with all perfect bare metal prior to the primer and application of the original F6 Bright Green Metallic paint along with the black wing and Daytona decals. The new five spoke chrome 15” Magnum 500 wheels are wrapped in new 60 series BF Goodrich Red line tires. The suspension consists of new Hemi torsion bars up front and new factory correct leaf springs in the rear. The car has 11” drum brakes in the rear and the front drum brakes have been upgraded to the 69 factory Bendix disc.
The cabin features all new Legendary black interior and door panels, front buckets and rear seat upholstery. The console and dashboard are trimmed in wood grain along with a wood grain premium steering wheel. The dash offers a 150 mph speedometer, tick-toc tachometer, temperature, amp and oil pressure gauges. The mileage on the five digit odometer shows 65,814 miles, which is the same mileage it had the day acquired in 2016 and believed to be original. The car retains a fender tag, a partial broadcast sheet and a clear title.
This is Dodge’s classic unique American “super car”. The sleek aerodynamic nose, unmistakable rear wing and flush rear window scream speed even when sitting still. The name of the game is to win, and this car is a winner!
