                                                                                 XX29L9B355101
Here are a couple of pictures of XX29L9B355101 as shown at the 2018 MCACN show.
This Daytona has long been noted of having the lowest vin among production Daytona's!

Just my opinion, but I liked the paint job it had in early &0’s when it was my dads car better than how it is now.

I think a "survivor" term applies to both a Day 1 and Day 2 car.

I like being able to see these Day 2 Survivors I got to know when I first joined the Aero community.  I'd have to call one that is still around from the 1970's a Survivor.  Loosing any to a Day 1 restoration is like loosing that comfortable flannel shirt I've had for decades (even if in no longer fits!).

I heard another "Day 2 Survivor" Daytona will also be lost to a restoration.  Sad to hear.

Surely...by definition...there is no such thing as a day two survivor. If it's not the same as it left the factory...with possible the exception of localised paint repair due to day to day damage...then it's not a survivor...and since it's (the blue Daytona) not original I think it's the prefect candidate for a restoration. But to be fair, although I can't see the interior, it does not lol like it needs much to be a nice driver as it is....wrong colour or not......but it no survivor...imo. lol

We agree to disagree alfaitalia ... LOL.  I'm okay with it (see below).

I have a 400 mile car made in 1975. Still has factory applied window sticker on it, and it is Day 1.  But I would hesitate to call that a "survivor".  It had a pretty sheltered life and I think Museum Piece is more appropriate.  It didn't do much to "survive".

But, on another hand, I do agree with alfaitalia that my 400 mile car did "survive" any Day 2 modifications.  Hence, Day 1 survivor vs Day 2 survivor. But a car painted some "MOD" (i.e. "flower child friendly") paint scheme in 1971 that is still wearing those colors today has to be recognized for surviving this long.  It is a part of MOPAR Aero Car history.  That's all I'm getting at.  Cheers!

I think my opinion falls somewhere between the two.  If it retains nearly all of the original parts and sheet metal, I think of it as a survivor and I think of Day Two as minor changes such as aftermarket wheels.  A complete color change seems a bit much for my definition of survivor.  Perhaps we have come to survivors and "original" survivors?

It's a shame that any Daytona that has a 70s paint job, wheels, tires, etc. be returned to "original".   

WHY??     Hundreds of "original" looking cars already restored!    Like we need another??   

At this point, you have a car that is different, unique, one of a kind.  A time capsule from another decade. 

I'd vote to keep it that way.    Besides, you can save the resto money for retirement.   scratchchin

Thinking about this subject the other day when this painting of a vintage guitar surfaced.     In the case of the guitar,  not only would restoration devalue it, it would make it "uncool".   All the stories are gone.   Not only that, it would generate more than a little side eye from your peers.    Yet with muscle cars, if it isn't a bone stock survivor, or a beautiful restoration,  there is little room for preservation of what is, and the path most often seen is restoration to a level it never had when new.

Here are some museum "survivors"? Nothing is safe.

The Corvette is a different thing altogether isnt it?  Did not Bloomington copyright the term "survivor" and then establish some very loose rules as to what a survivor can mean in order to satisfy the demands of the Vette crowd doing Bloomington textbook perfect restos but still wanting survivor status for their cars?

What's a corvette?      smilielol     Sounds like Corvette folks should run for office: what a razzmatazz scam!!!     

I like "back in the day" modified cars. Something done a day or year or so from NEW.  Hell, that's 45+ years ago!    To take a time capsule like that and restore it to "original", which a car NEVER can be if it's been restored, is awful!

Oh wait, I already stated this.   yesnod

How many ads have you read like this? "ALL ORIGINAL, fresh paint!    shruggy    lol
