Chassis no. XX29L9B390013. Red and white over black vinyl. 440/375hp, 4-speed, Track Pak, power steering, power brakes, Sure Grip differential, Magnum 500 wheels, red line tires, Hurst shifter, factory AM radio.

Evaluation: One of 503 total Daytonas built and represented as one of 92 fitted with a 4-speed in the Chrysler Registry. Fully restored and showing no serious flaws on top or underneath, at least in the photos.

Bottom Line: While the Daytona isn’t as well-known as its cousin the Plymouth Road Runner Superbird, Dodge’s aero car is significantly rarer (Chrysler sold about four times as many Superbirds as Daytonas) and more valuable, plus it came first. This one, while gorgeous, correct, and a standout with the 4-speed, wasn’t represented with its matching numbers engine and explains the somewhat soft price relative to its condition and third pedal. For reference, though, this number would buy just about the best 440-powered Superbird out there.

    It’s too bad that it will likely not be used for its intended purpose anymore due to its ever increasing value. What an effing BEAST! And people back when thought it was ugly! Didn’t they? Total thrill ride. I need one so bad.
