I knew it - it's a Richard Petty Superbird! 

Isn't that what every 66-74 Mopar chassis really is?  IIRC, Petty's crew was rotating through the chassis of every other Mopar team in the field at the time.  Each week they would run another team's chassis as their own.  The order came from Mopar itself, so that 50 years later everyone could restore them all as #43 birds.

So, the Hylton charger 500 was converted to Marty Robins daytona by Bobby Allison.  Interesting in that if you look at the Robbins daytona the cage bar on the upper front passenger corner (oddly set-back) matches the Hylton car.  Another thing I find neat is when this car was shown on e-bay it was rolling on 1 rim that was painted Marty Robbins purple/pink.  That would also explain why that chassis had holes in the trunk for the wing supports.  Very cool find!!!  Now, I wonder what the current owners will do with the restoration?

Exactly. but the rim was just a fluke. it was one that Bill Rossi had.

I agree the rim was more a funny coincidence than anything else.

Anyword word on how the owners of the car will restore the car back?
Charger 500 or Daytona??
What would be correct, or is there such a thing as correct if it were both at one time or another?
Interesting.

So all previous "history" is not correct?
Not the Prince car that was wrecked at Daytona?

Would appear that "most" history as reported is incorrect, except for having been owned by Hylton previously. 

In the shop photos taken the same day, the 500 sits inside the shop, the Daytona (Prince car) and 67 Charger sit outside.

I can understand how the confusion occurred. there are in fact holes in the trunk for wing braces. but, until the picture that Mike Ashley took at Hylton's it was always assumed James only had the one chassis. Even talking with James years ago he never said he had two 69' Chargers.  These guys really don't remember all that stuff. didn't have to. Kind of like Don White talking to me about the Charger behind his shop back in the day and never said it was the old #88 car. but, as Terry Nichels said Don is the kind of you don't ask he don't tell kinda guy. But, after serious archive searches and countless hours comparing photos. and talking with the right people  things start coming together. But Mike's photos were the "Smoking Gun" so to speak.  when James said he did some of his own work, he was right the photo clearly shows the vice with a bar in it. so they had added or replaced something.  But after it was sold to Marty Bobby Allison did the front suspension work and Eddie Allison helped prep the car for Marty. Yes, Bobby has lost a lot of memory but he still remembers stuff to.as does Eddie.  No disrespect to James Hylton but The car is going to be restored back to Marty Robbin's Livery.

Glad it gets to be a wing car after all but it could have been put back to the Hylton #48 Charger 500 and I would be equally happy. The Robbins car is a striking car so it will be a nice piece for sure.
