The blue chip collector car in the adjacent video and photo gallery is one of 8 Dodge Charger Daytona vehicles painted R6 Red. Officially listed in the Chrysler Registry, the vehicle at hand has been rotisserie restored by the peeps from Best of Show Automotive LLC.
Down to the smallest of bolts and nuts, this aero warrior is a time capsule. Under the hood lies an original big-cube 440 Magnum V8 enhanced with 4-barrel carburetion. 375 horsepower are put down to the 14-inch Magnum 500 wheels via a heavy-duty A833 4-speed transmission and a correct Dana 60 Track Pack rear.
Assembled in May 1969, this example of the Charger Daytona lineage boasts vinyl bucket seats, power steering, power drum brakes, a 26-inch radiator, and a senior Music Master AM radio. Back in the day, every manufacturer with ambitions in NASCAR had a mantra that goes like "win on Sunday, sell on Monday."
Seeing a Charger with a park bench spoiler win races was special enough, but having the opportunity to buy one is even more special. For the mountain of money RK wants for this poster child of golden era Detroit, the sale also includes items like restoration photos and framed documentation from the Chrysler Registry.
