Well, it looks like the Ted Stephens yard art Daytona is getting restored on Chop Cut Rebuild.

I can see all of them thinking--Hmm  where do we start? slap

It reminds me of how to "remodel" a house that is toast and technically have the original house.  You leave one wall and make what you want.   Then remove that first wall as a repair to the "remodel" to finish the original desire. nana

That thing is junk, move the tags to the "donor" body, call it a day, then restore it, with the right editing it'll look kosher to the moron viewers of these crap cable car shows

To me moving the tags to another body is a narrow gray area right close to (if not) fraud.
On the other hand doing this seems to be generally understood as what people will do for a buck.

The future owners of all daytona's will live with a complicated question about how real their car is.  The prices for nice ones today clearly is what moves those to look at this car as they are doing in the pictures.  brickwall

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

if a tv show wants to redo a daytona, i can supply them with one requiring a lot less effort.

so much for the junkyard's vow that the car would never be redone, eh....

This will be interesting.... I'm guessing there's a clear title to it..... With no motor, it won't be number's matching, so that'll take away a little....  Cheesy

Hope the sheetmetal work goes well....  2thumbs

It'll be interesting to see what they do for a rear window plug.....

If someone slaps repro Daytona parts on an original RT it will more of a Daytona than this will be. Still, as long as all the work is done up front and legitimately represented, I think its a positive to have saved (re-created?) it.

This is a good way of looking at it. 2thumbs
It brings to mind the AC Cobra's   Their is a whole market for Cobra replicas for the many that want to enjoy what they were.

If that's the way it works out for daytona's so be it.
A buyer just needs to know what it is they are buying.---The real deal or not---

Until a clear distinction between an original and a zombie is established their will be conflict.

It will be interesting to see what unfolds as to what will need replacement. At least it will be well known as to what has been done to this car. Really that car should be sitting in the mezzanine of someones Mopar repair shop as yard art.
