Are 69 Chargers really that hard to find? Some of us could use all the 68 parts you don't need.

I will keep people in mind that need the parts  my reason for wanting to convert this car are:

I know this car well I have owned itfor almost 10+years the floors and frame are spotless. its not an R/t

yes IMO The 69s were hard to get into that is how ended up getting into 68s years Ago.and Nowadays 69 are even harder to get into especially 4 speed BB cars.
 as for parts most are spoken for  except the grille  and smaller items

 I will keep everyone posted if and when parts become available

And you already know your car is 1 of 74. Rare obviously - maybe not the most desirable combo but, man, I'd have a hard time modifying it. Of course, I have a hard time modifying any of mine so I guess it's a personal preference. If it were mine, I'd hide the fact that it was originally a 68 or you'll be explaining why you converted it (halfway) to a Daytona clone. Some of these Mopar guys are nuts and will call you all sorts of names (or write disparaging things about you in a magazine) if they found out you used a rare original for something like that. Are the floors really that important when you're cutting holes in the quarters?

Thank you guys for not crucifiying (YEt). the car has no engine or trans so that was another reason.  again thank your concern. nothing is set in stone so we will see what happens over the next few months. 2thumbs

Yeah I was there at his Home  april 24th, 25th for the Build party for that car.  He always does some awesome things and it was nice to be a part of it.  I got my 68 from was him 7 years ago.

as i mentioned I found a 70 to use instead of my 68 so no more 68 Daytona Idea  2thumbs
