 What would I give to have the wing back? Well at this point nothing. With out the other part's it would just look goofy on my Charger. I am funny about that kind of stuff. That is why I was going to do the slug. If Ted had got me the slug and I had it installed, that might have been a driffrent story.

 Beside's, with the deal you had on the repop wing, I take that over the real one, I like $600.00 instead of $4,000.00 for a real one now.

I believe that last pic of the Red with the black wing is my old Ice Blue Daytona. I sold it to a guy in LA, and it ended up in Nevada. I know because they did not change the title over and I got a ticket two years later from Nevada. I had to show them my BOS before they voided the ticket.

Awesome. Do you have pics of the one you built? Maybe you posted it and I missed it, but I would love to see it. I have never seen the one Ted made. You say it is Yellow, What color of yellow?

Just a note about the pictures of the "Charger 500" that was posted. That car is a true HEMI Daytona. The car had been in 500 get up since the early 80's, and when that guy purchased the car he thought he was buying a HEMI 500. Only to later find out its a HEMI Daytona. So not a bad upgrade to get considering he didn't know it was a Daytona. Car still had the wing brackets, and jack in the trunk.
I do believe that car has since been restored and is now once again wearing a wing and a nose cone.

Here is mine in it's current state of being! I have all the parts, just no time. I did find the donor car Sat. from which I will extract it's motor/trans. This car had a 340 in it (from where I don't know). It is an X head motor, but it is already sold. I am using a 5 cyl turbo diesel Mercedes in my clone. I have converted to a disc setup already and stripped the car after these photos were taken.

The story I read online about that car is that a guy owned it and was going to sell it. He advertised it and then pulled it from the market and wanted to finish it. The add gave a Nevada address. I could not find on that link you gave where that car was built or where it is at. One thing is.. it does have the Vega rear window. Where did you get your info? It sounds like you know your stuff on this one.

This is an awesome thread since i have been looking for a 69' to convert to a Daytona clone someday.
Daytonaguy,
How are you doing all of the rear windows plugs (Vega hatch's?) & also how do you modify the deck lids & inner package trays.

That is a loaded Question. Get a big hammer and a blow torch, close your eyes and start swinging.  Grin  Does someone have those threads that we talked about the rear Vega window installation? For the price and quality, I think it is the way to go. The Dayclona plug and the after market glass is nice, if money is not a problem.

I guess I will have to post more... This is one that I would vote as the nicest clone out there. I would like to thank people for their compliments ... but my vote would go to this one.

A little tech tip for clone daytona builders


If stinger fiberglass products has the head light pivot brackets.With the connection point for the vacuum acutuator which is a known weak link on fiberglass parts .And people go to the electric set up sometimes out of frustrations with the vacuum. Ive made this change on cars Ive done.I get a household screen storm cylinder support bracket.Its hollow in the middle for the actuator arm.You need to shorten it and drill a hole in the side and pin it.And the screen door cylinder support bracket is flat with 4 mounting points.And will lay flat on the backside of the pivot bracket and only need 2 holes to secure it

Here's a created car, circa 1988 in NJ.

BTW, since when are 1970 Chargers considered clones for a car that only existed in 1969? If you do a clone, you need a '69. If it's a '70, it's just a created car.   Wink

Almost every '69 Daytona Clone, is based off of a 1970 Charger. Do I still need the Webster? Check the VIN's next time you see a "so called" clone.

Just in case you don't understand, a clone can only be a replica of a car that existed for the year that car was produced. No car with an "0" in the VIN could be a cloned Daytona.   I can create a 440 '73 Challenger R/T, but can I clone one? Can you understand that?

Not to stir the pot, but I don't see that definition listed anywhere. The closest I can find is:
"One that copies or closely resembles another, as in appearance or function"

I'd say a 70 "clone" qualifies in that respect. There are Shelby Mustang "clones" from different year vehicles. Haven't we covered this before? Is there and automotive dictionary that I don't know about? Even if there is a formal definition there's also common usage to take into account. Clones and replicas are seemingly interchangeable but mean two totally different things as well. I have never heard of a "created car" unless it's a hand built rod or something like that.
