Before my Daytona clone migrated to Northern Alberta with its 3rd + after conversion new owner its history began in Eagle Rock, a East LA suburb of So Cal.


It's new life began after I bought in Eagle Rock..approx 1988. The factory B5 R/T was street raced and pretty hammered..and for $500. I bought it in running condition. The two fender tag indicated a optioned out B5 blue, white bucket seat, console, AC, ps, pdb , sunroof etc.The sunroof was siliconed shut. For $12. I got a new sunroof seal from American Sunroof in LA ( The orig manufacturer) and got it working. Memory fails as to if the orig engine was still in it.
The former white interior was spray painted black, the AC missing..the 8 track and 3 speaker dash still there.

I also picked up a non running 70 SE with a mint black interior and woodgrain dash.console etc..for $300 from another LA suburb. (Those were the days). This car provided the interior for the 69 along with the fenders and hood. Oddly enough the 70 had a dana 60 in it... a factory 383 car.

Work began in earnest...in a basic one car garage with a 110 Mig. In So Cal weather doesnt stop you unless its too hot.

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.

By keeping the stock rear window and just raising it made it simple..and kept the trim.

Filled in the AC firewall-..if this car ever comes up for sale again...the firewall is one place to verify this car's history.
