What was the scheduled production date of the first batch of Daytonas?
Logged




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.

The first batch of Daytonas had a SPD of 4/27/69.

The "Reeker Daytona" 287970 had a SPD of 2/7/69, but it wasn't initially built as a Daytona (the program didn't exist then) - nor was there a batch of them.

He said GG waived his wand over it.  I am sure Geno and Danny has seen it.  He parked next to me at the Indy monster Mopar and was at Monster Mopar in StLouis.

 yesnod

400591, have seen it several times and interacted with Mr. Printz on occasion too.  That's a whole 'nother story   Shocked  

That car's VIN tag definitely looks original, and it does indeed read XP29L9B400591.  Fender tag is XX29 though...
