While the Charger R/T was a big star of the show, it didn't make the base model less intriguing. The car came standard with a 318 developing 230 horsepower, but the 426 Street Hemi was a massive upgrade that turned the car into a rocket on wheels.
The Charger R/T you can see in these photos is a project that could make many people walk away, especially if they get the chance to put the car on a lift. eBay seller guilo80 admits the vehicle requires a ton of work, but I don't think too many people are ready for the heavy rust that already invaded the undersides.
The 1969 Charger R/T has been sitting for a long time, and while the seller did not share any specifics, I believe the car spent many years under the clear sky. The metal looks rough, and the floors are wrecked. The trunk pan doesn't look any better, so full replacements will also be required here.
The interior looks more solid, but how many parts can be saved is unclear. You'll need an in-person inspection for a more accurate picture of what happens in the cabin, but I don't think the vehicle comes with bad news on this front. The interior looks complete, and I'm surprised with the condition of the seats and the dash.
You should remove the carpets to determine the amount of rust, but considering the horrible news you'll get when putting the car on a lift, don't get your hopes too high.
As anyone can figure out, the Charger R/T sells without an engine under the hood. The car still has good news on this front, as the seller explains they also include a 440 in the sale. It's unclear if it's in working shape, but a 440 is the second-best choice for a 1969 Charger R/T after the Hemi.
Bringing such a gem back to the road isn't a job aimed at the faint of heart, and only a connoisseur can fully appreciate a Charger R/T and a 440 big-block despite their challenging condition.
Unsurprisingly, the 1969 Charger R/T doesn't sell cheaply, as the owner configured the bid to start at $3,500. A reserve is also in place, so they won't let the car go without someone paying a lot more. If you want to get the car without a fight, the Buy It Now option is available at $25,000.
