My 69 Charger Daytona

Anybody know where the Orange County Daytona is? It was a Daytona, that I believe the Orange County Dodge dealer custom painted. I believe it was a HEMI Daytona that was Petty Blue, Red wing, with red hood inserts. I have seen it once in a Mag article and then never saw again. Anyone know the story on this car.

   I thought I read a story on the guy that owned it and all awhile back but all I got is this right now.  I remember it from a hot rod/car craft from the early 80-'s.

Dave B. (wingcars6970) knows the whole story on the car.  I think it was Jim Radke's car at the time, 409076.  Originally F6, HemiAuto, black interior.  IIRC he has sold it since.  I had a calendar with that car's pic on it many years ago.  Great car...

Good stuff. I wonder if it is back to original now. I loved that car. Great article and great angles for the pics.
