It has flames. It has rust. And it was found in a barn. I give to you this 1969 Dodge Daytona barn find, being offered by Mecum Auctions at their Kissimmee 2016 event.
Originally bought as a gift for the first owner’s wife, it changed hands in 1974. Since then, the second owner has had it in their possession. It comes with its “original wing, front fender bubbles, wide windshield edge trim, and nose cone” according to the lot’s description. Another important original piece is its Dodge 440 Magnum engine, with a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. It also had some sweet flames added to the front at some point.
The 20,533 miles on the odometer is the believed actual mileage, which isn’t hard to believe considering the car looks like it’s been in a static position for quite some time.
Inside, the car still retains all of its original pieces, including factory options like the headrest-equipped buckets seats, clock/tachometer assembly, chrome floor shifter and more.
Interested in owning one of just 503 Daytona’s built? Be sure to visit Mecum Auctions’ Kissimmee event, running January 15-24. It’s expected to fetch $150,000-180,000.
