Yes, you read it right, 400 bucks for a 69 Daytona. Bought it from the original owner...obviously a project car but all parts are included. The matching numbers HEMI and 4 speed are there along with the 4.10 Dana. This is my 6th Daytona...I just keep finding them.

Of my 6 Daytonas, this is only my 2nd Hemi Daytona. It is however, the 20th hemi car I have owned.

I lived next door to the original owner until 1985. we stayed firends through the years and he called me last week and asked if I wanted it. He needed to get it out of his yard. He was going to give it to me for free, but I told him I had to give him something for it. I told me to buy him a new DVD recorder and we would call it even...It needs ALOT of work, but the 426 was removed and rebuilt about a year ago. It even came with new glass and new chrome, as well as a complete new legendary interior.

Good eye. The car was put in the garage, the drivetrain was removed and rebuilt and the rstoration was well on its way. The body was about 99% rust free. On the driver side floor board, there was a rust hole about 2" round. The owner made a small metal patch and welded it in. One word of advise, if you are welding a floor board that had been undercoated...have someone with you with a water hose or fire extenqusher. The car went up, causing the damage up see here. 100% perfect sheetmetal is now warped and pitted. Structurally the car is still great, I had it on the frame machine in my shop and it measures out perfrct.

It's hard to tell in the pics but was warped due to the heat and water pressure from the fire dept.

something's off here? the first pic looks like a completely mangled, but still painted body. the next pics it looks like it's covered in rust and mud? fire damaged or rolled over a cliff?

more pics?
