interesting how they complain about the rear seat leg room, like it's a freakin' rustang or baccaruda,..  I've never had anyone complain about a lack of rear leg room, infact, parked at the beach or drivein with the front seats all the way up and flipped forward, it makes for a pretty good little love nest...   Cheesy

Yes Dave it is one of the other Y28 sales code cars. It is a press release car as well, and was coded for the W23 recall wheels as well. As well as having the cloth insert seats, and power windows.

Very Cool, after about 9 years I drove my Hemi 500 for the first time 10 days ago. It sounds exactly like the video and I've got the permanent grin described. A local guy who has a chassis dyno, completed the mechanicals for me as I work a ton of hours and let everybody do what they're good at. He has the car tuned so well, you reach in, touch the key and its running, rumbling away like a wild beast. The car is so much fun to drive, 727 with 4:10 Dana and a moderate TC. at a roll of 25, nail it  and it downshifts, spins thru 1st, hits 2nd and slides sideways, shifts into 3rd about 75 and will top out at about 110 at 6000 RPMs according to the dyno. I'm putting a few miles on her before I take it to the track and run her up to top speed. When I purchased the car, 9 years ago as a basket case it had Rat Exterminator painted across the doors, (old drag car) B5 Blue, white gut, stripe delete car(V88). Looking to run in the Pure Stock Drags 30 minutes away this fall.
Car had Gean Gregory's name on the title when I transferred it but I don't know any history other than that. Anybody else? I added the white stripe and a Dana (becauseI like to drive these cars like they were built to be driven). Chuck at Best Machine built the Hemi with a new MP block, #'s block is in the garage. and I will drive it like I stole it!. Pulled up in front of a friends house with W-30 442. Nailed it at 25, but  because it was uphill, spun thru 1st, 2nd AND 3rdup to about 80, left black marks for a block. At this rate the redlines won't last long but what a rush it is to have fun like this. If I have a bad day at work, 2 minutes in the car makes it go away. Enough rambling, cool video.   Greg

Okay, after a little tweaking of the video in final cut pro the item on top of the console is indeed a pack of smokes. Can't make out the brand though.

As far as what is on the speedo lens, can't make that one out. Looks like a round felt sticker, but it is definitely centered in the lens though.

Anyone else notice that the car doesn't have any jack instructions on the underside of the deck lid? And the dent in the drivers side quarter panel, just above the wheel? That dent is still there today. The negative battery cable, doesn't appear to have any part of it that wasn't painted either. And I know Gene will get this one, but its a hex head screw on the bracket that holds the heater hoses too, not a pan head phillips screw as seen on Jim's Unrestored Daytona.

That's amazing that you know the car Dan!  WOW!  I noticed also they have the air vent pulled, do to all the heat in the interior.  You can full screen it also and get a great view of things.

In all honesty the car hasn't changed much since the taping of that video. According to one magazine I have where they were test driving the same car, they said they put 5,000 miles on the car during their various tests. The car has under 20,000 on it total, and has been parked since before I was born. The car is missing the stripe now though, I do know that much.

SSooooooooooo  repainted?  Where'd the stripe go?  I gotta tell ya, to me what a waste of a nice car to be sitting somewhere hidden.  I just took my car out to grab some milk for the kids.  Nothing better than to see one of these babies rolling down the road.

Nope not repainted yet. It will be whenever the current owner gets around to finally doing a restoration on the car. He has been telling me since I was 5 years old that he was going to restore the car some day. That some day has yet to come. Doubt it will before I'm 50 either. But rest assured its not going anywhere though.

So check this out.  I was at a book store today and there is a Mopar mag on the shelf right now that has a great article on a 69 Hemi Charger 500 in red. It's a 4 speed car and it's # 407 or 8 or 9 and I think he has 2 in his hobby and is collecting them in the proper vin order.  Thing is he mentions his car is 1 of 2 Hemi 500's that are that red and the other is an automatic, that being this car.  Go get the mag before it's gone.


So Dan, tell us more?  How do you know the guy, how many times have you seen the car, was it a big deal to you even as a kid?  And, where'd the stripe go, they peeled it off?   Etc.....

The car in the magazine your talking about is owned by a board member. XXHEMI is the one who has the R6 red HEMI 500 in the article, and it is supposed to be at Carlisle for me to  drool5 over.

I have known the guy who has the HEMI 500 road test car all of my life. He used to always hang out with my dad when I was younger. He has one heck of a collection of cars. Every time I go visit him I'm more and more shocked at cars that he has, that I've never seen and I've known him for 30 years. He  just doesn't get his stuff out, other than a few cars that he drives a lot. The stripe was off of the car when he bought it in the early 70's, and it actually has 1970 door panels on the front as well. Other than that, nothing much has changed in the past 40 years.
