This car enthusiast goes in Alabama, the Yellowhammer state, where he encounters this amazing Dodge Daytona Barn Find! This car was formerly owned by the Richard Petty team which has a total of 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories and a total of 36 Sprint Cup pole positions.
At first look at the Daytona we can see that it`s very dirty, rusty and dusty, just what we look in a barn find, untouched with a preserved originality. And it should never be restored, if restored it will totally lose its magic. This car is so rare it should be protected and preserved by law!
This 1969 Dodge Daytona Barn Find Is totally a museum material. This awesome car is made especially for racing and not just racing but winning and not winning any event but winning high profile NASCAR races. Its predecessor the Dodge Charger was a total failure when it comes to racing, not being able to win a single race and that`s when Dodge and Chrysler had it, and transformed the Challenger into a very mean machine. The Dayton model, the first car ever to reach the 200 mph mark! It`s also a masterpiece when it comes to aerodynamics.
This model is extremely rare and a wet dream for many car collectors. This Dodge Daytona Barn Find has a 440 Magnum engine which is original to the car. It`s got a very cool interior options like factory – chromed floor shifter in a center console, headrest-equipped bucket seats, dash cluster with clock/tach assembly and that is not all. It even has a door – mount stereo speakers.
This is all original to the car.
This Dodge Daytona 1969 Barn Find, was sold at an auction 3 weeks ago in Mecum for 90.000 dollars. We really hope the new owner won`t restore the car because the authenticity should be preserved.
