  He said there was none...  For some reason I don't believe him...  He though showing me those pix would scare me off from buying, but NOPE...  I kept at him, then he finally said he didn't own it, and owner was hard to get ahold of, and didn't want to sell...

Careful there Charger Aficionado, I'm on here too.  There is no vin tags on it at all, someone swiped them off the car years ago.  The car is not worth what everyone keeps offering.  This guy will not sell the whole car, not to mention it is badly twisted.  Come on up here I will show it to you and you will walk away from it.  Trust me I have been on this guy for months about it and finally he said you  can take one thing off of it that you want and that is it.  So I took the rear window chrome, it was the only thing that was salvagable.  Apparently the guy bought 15 years ago in a junk yard and it had been sitting in the junk yard for at least 5 years or more.  Sorry you don't believe me but it is the truth.

As far as that being the first Daytona, I say yes it is the first Daytona. First car they put a wing and a nose cone on for press release photo's. The other early photo car was F5 green and it was also missing the fender scoops.

The other thing about that car is that the nose and vallance were Glass. That pic motivated me to make my white and red Daytona. I will never do a white one again.

Dane, why won't you ever do a white car again?   Is there something I should know?   One of my options was maybe to do a white car with a red stripe.   Others colors I'm leaning towards doing also, but white was one of the options.

« Reply #20 on: October 05, 2005, 12:53:56 AM »

I had my White and red one for one year and found out that it was the most boaring dull color for a wing car. It just seemed to blend in to everything. I felt I was driving a Grandma's Daytona, like all I needed was some hubcaps, white walls and a walker in the back seat. That is why I am not all that hip on black either, it is a ghost color, you seem to look past it. Although my black & Gold one was one of my fondest Daytona's. If you go black you need to have chrome to highlight your fenderwells and big chrome/shiny wheels.

  I would never walk away from it.  I need alot of sheetmetal for my car.  I could use alot of what is there.  How or WHY would ANYONE turn-down CASH for something they think is worthless?  I need the rear window all the way back to the end of the car (including trunk gutters, and decklid).  I will pay you whatever he asks.
  NOW, I notice that the auction for the rear window trim is gone.  I really can't stand this.  I have HAD to ask some people if they would end early since I need parts so bad.  Most eBayers seem OFFENDED if you ask, like it has impugned their integrity or something.  So, now I don't bother, and TRUST that the auctions will take their course...  My mistake.  I guess you got a good offer huh?  I was prepared to pay 1k for that stuff or more (depending on max bid).  Hope you got at least that.

I don't think you understand, that is not surface rust or paint on that car all the metal on it is paper thin.  If you lean on it you will go through it.  I have restored a few cars and if it was worth saving trust me I would have pushed even harder than I have to get the car.  There is barely anything left of the trunklid, quarter panels and tail panel.  Sorry your mad but, I can't help it that this guy will not sell the car.

No you can't because someone cut it out.  I am only guessing that there is a retaged 500 out there somewhere.  Also the radiator support was cut out also.

The other Charger that has the stripe very forward on the quarters is the Super Charger that that is currently owned by Steve Juliano.That car was transformed from its first showcar trim in 68,to the picture shown which was 69,to its current formation as a 70 Daytona nosed,topless Charger.

His sentence of exile from Moparts was lifted and he returned to his regular site.   I spoke to him briefly at the Nats and he was aware of this Charger forum but hadn't gotten around to checking it out yet at that time.

What about the first Daytona off the line??

Any idea of its whereabouts?

I hear ALOT from car guys around here that a local doctor bought NEW his hemi orange Daytona 440 w/ auto trans I believe. I hear he still has it today sitting in storage and have NEVER actually seen this car.

This infamous doctor's name is Dr. Cheeseborough? and I'm told by everyone its either the 1st one off the line or the 1st Canadian car.
Can anyone clear this one up?

Ah Dr. Cheeseboroughs Daytona. It is the first Daytona on the shipment list. It wasn't the first Daytona made, as there was one built in February, but his was the first one shipped out to an owner. It is also the first Canandian Daytona as well.

Someday I hope to see this car and shoot some pics of it!

The Daytona with the 287 start of the VIN is the one that Larry Bell used to own, that is currently for sale for $395K I believe.
