Dodge Charger Daytona
NASCAR races were one of the most important battle arenas of muscle car wars. In the late 1960s, the superspeedways were places of many fierce clashes between Detroit’s manufacturers. The most exciting period was the late ’60s when NASCAR rules allowed modifications to car bodies to make them more aerodynamic. The Charger Daytona was one of the first cars that used a wind tunnel and new materials in construction (via Road and Track).
Dodge made exactly 504 Daytonas in 1969 and only some of those survived. When they are for sale, Daytonas are known to reach insane prices so even rusted examples are sought-after. It is strange that one red example manages to stay under the radar hidden in a barn for so long. It was located in Alabama and neglected for decades, filthy and rusted. This tired Daytona showed signs of using a custom paint job, but it had all the important parts and paperwork.
