Here is a link to a bunch of pictures from about every angle:

This is a super solid 1969 Charger, which is still in its original F5 medium green paint. It has been off the road and in storage for about 10 years. It has some rust but it is far better than most Charger projects I've seen lately. Since it’s wearing original paint, you know exactly what you're buying. The floorpans, torsion bar crossmember, hood hinge mount areas, and front/rear subframes are as solid as you can find on an unrestored 2nd gen Charger. The trunk is remarkably solid too; the trunk pan has a couple of small holes in the lateral trough, but that’s it (see pictures). I wire brushed the trunk floor to clean it up and to best show its condition. Rear window corners have some rust in the corners (see pictures). Originally it was a 383-2 and 727 automatic transmission but the original engine/trans was replaced in the early 80’s with a 400, which runs.

The vinyl seats have some split seams but are in good shape considering age. Door panels are in good shape but the driver’s inside door handle pad is worn. The headliner and dash pad are in great condition. The console is there and in good condition. The cluster looks good, but the tach doesn’t work and the oil pressure gauge is intermittent. The driver’s side front fender is dented on the top surface leading edge and has some rash/scrapes all along the trailing edge of the left fender (see pictures) . All the stainless trim is present-several pieces have dings. The grill is complete but has some dings/chips/cracks. The headlights/doors don't work as they should. Since they're vacuum operated, there is probably a vacuum leak. The radiator was replaced at some point and it is not a Mopar piece. This is an original air conditioned car but the A/C condenser and some hard lines are missing in the engine bay. Someone added an aftermarket cruise control system which is mounted just forward of the master cylinder; I have no idea if the cruise control still works or not. The car has power assisted brakes with 11” drums on all 4 corners. To free up the brakes, I replaced the front wheel cylinders and bled the brakes. Since it had been parked so long I pulled the spark plugs, sprayed marvel mystery oil in the cylinders, let it soak, and then turned the engine over several times by hand. I repeated this process several times before attempting to start the engine. I installed a new fuel tank, fuel sending unit, mechanical fuel pump, soft fuel lines, spark plugs, rotor, and thermostat. I had the Edelbrock carb rebuilt. The alternator works and ammeter shows a charge. The car has HP exhaust manifolds and glass packs which dump before the rear axle. The engine runs/lot drives, but I have no idea what shape its in internally. I went through the fuel system, set the timing to where it should be, and got the car functional to could be lot driven to move it around. When the oil pressure gauge works (it's intermittent), it shows similar oil pressure as the 383 in my other 69 Charger (about 18-20psi at idle on startup up). If it were me, I would be installing a 440; this 400 might run a long time as is but I won't guarantee it. At minimum, this charger definitely needs all new belts, hoses, and fluids. I would suggest having the steering/alignment/ball joints checked out.

The roof skin has about 3 or 4 hail dings; a PDR guy could get the roof dings out pretty easily. There is some rust on the bottom of both quarter panels and in front of both rear wheel wells. The rear valance has some rust at both ends (see pictures), where they usually rust. A good body guy could patch the lower quarters/valance and blend the paint, which would leave the paint mostly original. The wheels/beauty rings are in great condition. The tires look good and are not dry rotted, but they are probably at least 7-8 years old so they should probably be replaced. The driver’s side door has to be opened from inside so the linkage probably needs inspected/hooked up. The windshield is cracked. The only air filter housing I have is a cheesy chrome looking Edelbrock air filter housing, which is included. The paint on the roof is thin in some spots. The sides have plenty of door dings as most driver cars of this era do.

The car has a clear Kansas title, original VIN plate, and fender tag. The broadcast sheet is still in the springs in the rear seat lower cushion. The partial VIN stampings all match the VIN. This is a solid, mostly complete charger with cool patina ....it would be a solid foundation for a restoration or you could leave it with survivor/patina paint and just drive as is! Either way, this is a 48 year old car that hadn't been on the road in a decade so it's not something you can just get in and drive. It will still need some work before putting it on the road. Payment must be made in cash. I would prefer that the buyer see the car in person to see exactly what they are buying. If this can't happen, that's ok, but payment must still be made in cash. $23K obo
I am very interested in the 69 Charger. Can you contact me, please?
