Maybe he traded in a '68 and liked the road wheels better.

the wheels are explained on dave's WWNBOA link, where the original owner's letter is being quoted

The dealer told me that when he got it, it had red line F70 X 15 tires and stock wheels with wheel covers. He thought that the wheels looked out of place on such an exotic car, so he changed them for some Dodge chrome "road wheels" and F60 X 14 white letter tires, if I remember correctly. He also mentioned that, as delivered to him, the paint job was rather poor so he had it repainted locally.


notice it was yet another repaint, as well

Saw this on the mclean site where it say coming soon is it this daytona or another one
1969 Hemi Daytona 1 of 1 Black/white 4-speed. This car is available from a private collection.... but, the owner wants top dollar before he'll cut it loose.... serious individuals willing to pay a premium for a rare car, can call me for details...

He's been trying to peddle my old Hemi GTX Conv for at least 3 years. It's still as it was since 1986 when I did the car over.

Again, awesome car !!!

But, I had to chuckle....... If, according to the RPM ad, this Daytona is 1 of 2 black Hemi Daytonas with white interior, making it the rarest of all wing cars ever built. OK???

So, if the black with white is the rarest, why wouldn't the black with black also be the rarest? ( I know, it is all advertising )

I agree. I wonder how many people are actually fooled by the way they try to word that "stuff".
