Love your car. I assume it has original major components. Is it column or console shift and the read end ratio? The SE makes it rare.

I'll be very interested to see what offers you get.

Best of Luck!

Thanks! It is a console shift and the original rear is an 8 3/4 sure grip with 3:55 ratio.

Those pics are from our local "Mopar Madness" car show and one of only a few times I have shown it over the last 35 years. People really enjoy seeing the Daytona and it drew a crowd when displayed. I took it to a few local cruise-ins as well. Not unusual when driving it to have people follow you taking video and photos. Realizing the "car is the star" puts it in perspective. You buy into the celebrity when you own one. It's been surreal, but it's time to let someone else live the dream!

Was it repainted?   
Maybe it's the pic, but it looks dark.   Twocents

Found this on a thread here, comparing B7 to B5.

Nice car you've got, but it really needs a proper restoration. Seeing that nicely restored Daytonas are fetching between $200-260K (pre-econimic downturn), a Daytona that needs a complete restoration isn't going to sell anywhere near for 385K. As it sits, the car would be considered "driver quality. There's nothing wrong with that and I'm not trying to burst your bubble or insult you, but the facts are the facts. It's true that these cars are limited, but so are buyers with that kind of scratch, especially in these times.








Check out this car that's for sale as a comparison....

Naturally you are entitled to your opinion.
This is not the car for a "bargain hunter" but for a serious collector with ample means to purchase recognizing the opportunity it presents. 1 of ~ 15 SE Daytona's and 1 of 2 B7 and the ONLY SE in B7. 1 of 1 on many accounts when breaking down the options. In fact the only option it doesn't have is power windows. Because it is an SE Daytona it falls into a unique category of both rarity and price structure.
Over the years I have collected parts and spares which would enable someone to effect a high level restoration should they choose to do so. As well as keeping important spares like extra rims, rear window, etc.

Also to answer the color question above. It is a real B7 car as noted on the broadcast sheet and that is the correct color on it. Looking at photos taken by different cameras under different natural lighting conditions is not an accurate way to determine if the shade is right.

Love that B7! Good luck on the sale. Did all the SE Daytonas have the chrome door protectors and chrome valve covers-is that part of SE package?

No chrome valve covers avail on any B body in 1969, daytona or otherwise

The chrome valve covers are aftermarket, I have the original painted factory ones from 1969 that the car came with. The chromes were on it when I purchased it in '85.

A47 is the "Special Edition" package and appears on line 6 of the broadcast sheet and also appears on Line 3 of the fender tag.

The door edge protectors were not part of the SE package and appear on line #9 on the broadcast sheet as option M05, the originals were missing when I purchased the car in '85 so I put chrome plastic ones on and purchased a pair of factory NOS stainless in the original packaging. and stored them away with the other parts I collected to be included with the car when sold.

B7 is certainly one of the hardest colors to photograph, and mix...    Twocents

My understanding from several years ago was that all the "SE" Daytona's built were accounted for with this one and 3 missing being documented in Canada.
That put the number at 15 but I say ~15 in the ad due to it being unknown if any of the missing Daytonas were in fact SE cars...we'll never know the answer to that question! shruggy
One certain fact, much less SE than Hemi Daytona's. scratchchin

Nice photo..oh I took it,  icon_smile_big(Door jamb):  FWIW photo was purpose taken at the time for visiting with a friend if it matters.  You know how photos sometime change and do not always show colors that well. I took several here for conversation to find the one photo that represents it best.  Also, remember that it is at the 1/4 jam area although good paint there usually but it still would not be as nice as the outside would have been (I presume).  Also this spot is protected from the sun so color is good.  Car was repainted a very long time ago white (and other colors too).  The white is flaking off the top of the original B7 (as coded for car).  I feel it is a good photo representing B7 imo fwiw.  Not that many B7 cars out there and sure neat to see them.
