Day 2 Psychedelic Daytona
This 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona is one of the total production of 503 built to satisfy NASCAR homologation rules. It was one of five special order 1969 Charger Daytonas from McEvoy Dodge in Rochester, New York. It was originally a stripe delete V2 Hemi Orange Daytona, but shortly after its purchase, the original owner had a custom psychedelic paint job applied to the car. A vintage plaque is still attached to the dash which displays the name of the custom painter. It’s equipped with a 440 Magnum, D34 TorqueFlite transmission and the A32/D58 4.10:1 Super Track Pack Dana 60 rear axle. A set of vintage Motor Wheel Spyder wheels with Goodyear red streak tires help this classic roll on down the highway.
By 1972, this Charger Daytona was either parked or placed into minimal use and by 1979, it was placed into long term storage. This Daytona was sold around 2005 in its as seen condition today. All the original factory parts are still on this Charger Daytona and the custom 1969 paint job is still intact! This car is routinely driven to local events in the Chicago area and is shown here at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Real Day 2 display.
Personally, I vote on keeping this Day 2 Psychedelic Daytona in its current condition. It only has 17,000 miles, it has all of the factory installed parts, and it has a personalized custom paint job that exemplifies our Muscle Car and cultural era from the late sixties and early seventies. God Bless America!
