Just the wrong sheetmetal and trim pieces you can see in the picture are numerous. Imagine what is wrong or missing that you can't see. I'll bet it has a fiberglass repo wing too.

I just love how the fender scoops are backwards!  They'll probably fly right off at highway speeds.

That's the car that the guys at DSAC forum have talked about. It's the real deal and is absolutely full of rust. No one can rebody the car since it's already in the registry as a rust bucket. The guys that own it don't seem to care whether they sell it or not. They even drive it to local car shows to this day. A previous owner liked the 68 side marker lamps and added them to the car.

Troy that car has rust on rust. It is bad. It would be possible to repair the car without doing a rebody, however doing a rebody would be 15 times cheaper than repairing all the rust on that car.

It is absolutely rough. However it is a true Daytona, and it is pretty close to what I want in a Daytona. Its missing the 4 speed though.

Sometimes we have to accept things for what they are. While I'm one of those guys that tries to restore every car that comes along, even I realize that there are cars that should be left alone. We can't return them all to their former glory.

Boy, what is it about Clayton's car recently?  Second thread this week about it...

I had a long-winded reply all typed up to defend Clayton against some of the comments made by others on this thread.  I'll refrain and give those people the benefit of the doubt.

Here is the other mention made of this car this week:
http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,10550.0.html

A DC.com thread back in December
http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,6808.0.html

The thread from the '70 Charger Registry forum back in July (right after D-C.com crashed and we were orphaned over there)
http://1970chargerregistry.com/70messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=1915&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

There may have been other threads about Clayton's car as well, but if you read the last two linked threads you'll see what the real story of the car is.  If you still have questions about the car or the seller, please feel free to ask here or PM me.

I honestly don't know.  It's been a couple of months since I've talked with Clay or Clayton.  I'll maybe give them a call this week to find out what the story is.  Wouldn't surprise me if that was the case, with the way prices have shot up recently.  Someone's gonna take a flyer on it sooner or later.

There was a rumor I heard from two or three people last fall that he had sold it.  When I asked, he still had it - but that was back after Thanksgiving.

When I find out, I'll let you guys know.

Well I had heard it at the swap meet this weekend that they had sold it for $70K. I didn't figure they would take that for it, as  they kept asking around $100K.

Larry & Rene,

I sent you both a PM, since you asked. 

Most of the untrue statements made in this thread have been covered in the posts I linked to earlier, and those who would like to know more about the car should be able to get to the bottom of the story by reading those posts.  As I said, I'll give everyone the benefit of the doubt, since this car definitely has some "unique" attributes.  At first blush, there are things that all of us wonder about - that is until you know a whole lot more about the history of the car.

If (after reading the previous posts) there are still questions about the car, I'll try and answer them as best I can.

 cheers

Rene, I was hoping to have another reason to call Clayton besides just being nosy about whether his Daytona sold or not.  I'll catch up with him soon though.
