It looks like there were about 13 "special edition" 1969 Charger 500s.   How many of these SE's (special editions) are 4 speeds?

In preparation to attend the October Aero Reunion in Alabama, We are preparing a one owner Charger 500 SE F8 440, 4spd survivor. It is not yet listed on any registry and has been garaged since the early 80's.  The original owner (Jerry) is really enjoying coming to the shop to watch it come to life again. The Charger 500 is an all original numbers matching car that followed Jerry (career Navy serviceman) to his duty stations including Hawaii and the Philippines. We are preserving all of the memories, loads of documentation, military stickers and years of "patina". As we find out more and more about this car from Jerry, we are becoming increasingly aware of it's coolness and rareness. When he was in Hawaii, he put slicks on (which he still has) and raced at the Oahu drag strip. Jerry is hopeful to also attend the Aero Reunion, however, his health will dictate that. I will attempt to post pics.

That's awesome !!!  2thumbs

Hopefully the ribber strips on the leading edge of the front grille-2-fender fillers are there.. They usually disappear over the age of the car...... Very unique piece...

Hello Troy, Yes, those rubber "eyebrows" are in perfect shape and very pliable. Thanks, Steve

Would love to chat to Jerry. Having talked to 14 original owners of 500ís over the years, would love to chat up another one.
