1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

The Dodge Charger Daytona’s wedge nose and tall rear wing provided excellent aerodynamics, and the cars’ 426CID Hemis put out somewhere north of 475 horsepower, helping them reach massive speeds on the typically elliptical NASCAR circuits. The cars weren’t bad on the street circuits either, dominating the field and winning 38 of 48 races in 1970.

This car is part of that legend, and was run by Cotton Owens and the legendary Buddy Baker in 1970. Its race history includes that one-off over 200 mile per hour record lap, a win at the Darlington Southern 500 and second in the Firecracker 400.
