What is the deal with the trunk wheelhouse not being the same as body color. Is that a Daytona thing?

As far as I know, limelight/sublime was not available in 1969. Superbirds had that color but not Daytonas.
Must have been a repaint.

Yeah, you can see the eccentrics have been painted over...... What a shame on the car.... But, a real creame puff regardless....... A wee bit pricey though I'd say....

I thought it might be a repaint but, with the comment "Car Driven from Dealership to Storage in 1969" I didn't want to jump to conclusions. I wonder if the dealership resprayed it or the original owner?

Why on the VIN decal is the date 9/69?     Should it have been more of 6/69?

Or is the first "6/" missing??

I must be having a total brain meltdown. Did the pre-1970 cars get door VIN# decals.  Huh

Regardless, like Chris said, a 9/69 date code should be during the 1970 production run and early Septmeber built cars at St. Louis(only plant in 1970) would have read "September 1969".

The Daytonas got the 70 VIN decals Ty.

As far as the special order color there was only 2 choices Butterscotch Yellow or Rally Green which is a darker shade than that car.
They would have painted behind the VIN decal and in the trunk if it were a special order color......

Elmer Duellman bought the car new, and he is the current owner.  He also has a limelight superbird with 11,000 miles-he bought that car new as well.

He has said that the daytona was lime green when he bought it, it was repainted in 1989-1990 because the paint was flaking off around the window plug.

Also, I have an old muscle car magazine from 1989 with a '69 Charger R/T SE article about this car that sat on a dealers lot for over a year.  It was silver.  The only way the guy would buy it is if they painted it the same as his new Duster, lime light or in the case of the Charger, sublime J5.

BTW Chris, looking at the article now, here is the VIN for your registry.

I wish Doug Schellinger would weigh in on this car.

E D bought the car new from what I"ve always been told. Car was painted the lime green, I before it was ever sold. I don't recall if it was E D who wanted it that color, or the dealership who painted it. But it was that color before being sold, or at least that is what I've always been told on the car.

I can assure you that the mileage on this car is not a fake. When I was little I remember going with my dad to see this car, and it was super low miles then, and Doug from the DSAC club and the Winged Warriors have all known about this car from very early on. Always been parked.

The door decal is something I didn't know and it is interesting. Were the Daytonas not pulled off of the assembly line and shipped to Creative? If so when were the VIN# door decals added? Because the standard '69 Charger's that went down the line did not get them I would assume the decals were installed after being pulled from the assembly line and before being shipped to Creative?

Still, why is there a 9/69 date code on it?  Maybe it is just a typo.  I don't doubt it is an original car but, these details are fun to talk about.

It IS original miles.  I have seen this car dozens of times, and I know Elmer personally.  I bought my 69 rt from him-he owned my 69 between the time my dad had it and I got it.  It took me almost 15 years to get him to sell it.  

I never even looked at the fender tag,  it didn't seem important at the time.  Galen has the documentation on both of his wing cars.

 Elmer has a charger 500 or two as well.  If I can find my pics, I will post them.

Mr. Duellman's car was listed in the '79 WW newsletter as a black exterior color car.  I wonder if they were logging the fender tag information that was reported, or if the car was still black then?

You can see the rough outline of the tape job they did around the door VIN tag, and there's visible green overspray in several locations - like on the steering wheel, radiator, etc. 

This is a low-mileage car that in some areas would have to be restored to look as low as the miles really are.  $675k...   rotz  Will the madness ever stop??

Gene I was under the impression that his car was painted that green the day or shortly after he purchased it new in 1969. I could be wrong, but remember going to see the car with my dad in the early 80's and it was green then.

Well, I have no real idea myself.  I was only questioning based on the '79 owners list, when the car was shown as being black.  That doesn't mean it definitely was black at that time, it just made me wonder.

I think that most of the cars listed on the 1979 list, were supposed to show what the car came from the factory as.

Case in point is Charger 500 224396 which in 1979 had already been converted to a 4 speed console car, but is listed as it came from the factory as an AUTO no console.

Danny,

That's the answer to the question I was hoping for -  that the Owners List was logging what they knew or thought to be the factory configuration of a car.

Thanks for clearing that up!!!

I'm not positive on that one Gene, but I know on a few cars that to be the case. There is a few others that I know of a color change early on, but are listed with origional colors.

Anyone with any input on the door decal?  Why the 9/69 date?  Geno, does your Daytona have a full date or just the month/year like that one??

I dont think my car has the door decal on it.And its a very original 22.000 mile car either it was forgot at the factory or fell off. I didnt see no old outline of it being there. When it was new picture circa 70-s.And how it stands today as seen on carsinbarns like something like 35 36 years later below

[[[[Elmer Duellman]]]] still owns this ultra low mileage original Superbird.   This photo was taken in 1975 wth 11,000 miles.  When I saw the car a year ago, it only had 13,000 miles on it.  It still wears its original paint with the advertising for Elmers Auto Salvage.  .This is the guy who own the daytona a superbird on this link and 69 charger 500s.

Chris, my original decal was removed.  I can see where the outline of the adhesive was, so I know it had one.  When they do have one, it did not have a full date - just the month and year.  Jim (3--daytona) probably has one on his green car.  ECS Automotive Concepts makes spot-on repros of the VIN stickers.  I think the Daytona sticker fonts are just a little different than most, from talking with Dave Walden (owner of ECS Automotove).

ECS Automotive VIN Tag page

David Patik (Performance Car Graphics) has pointed out before that not all Daytonas came with the VIN sticker, so it's not unheard of for an original unrestored Daytona to be stickerless.  Could be that the line workers just plain forgot to put them on some cars.

Dave B. - I don't recall what your VIN is, but I would be curious to know its build date - if it's an early car, that might lead us to believe that only the later-built cars got the stickers.  Mine is a 6/9 car, which is fairly late in the run, and it had a sticker.  That's still just a guess though.

OK Geno so if its the month & year why is this one 9/69?    That would be for a 70 model year no?

Well, there goes that theory.  It was just a guess anyway, but that's probably why David Patik and others have just flatly said some got the stickers, some didn't.  No apparent rhyme or reason.  Mine was scheduled to be built the next working day (yes, I know it's a Monday car  Tongue ), but shipped from Creative three days earlier on 8/27 and it had a sticker.

Another question for you Dave, while we're talking about your car - what is the assembly date on your engine?  My bet is that it is REAL close to if not on your car's SPD.  I know of a Daytona with an SPD of 6/4 whose numbers-matching engine has an assembly date of 6/6 - two days after the SPD.  I think there's a pattern with Hamtramck cars built around then, which is why I'm trying to find an engine block for my car with an assembly date so tight to the SPD.  Sorry for the hijack...

Motor is 5-20 69 for a 606 build date car .Car in number #381 it was a unknown car to both clubs even as far as the79 records .Before I disclosed it.Dave Patik has seen and pointed out many unique details to me on it.Whats odd to me as it was shipped 8-30 69.And never lanqiushed at the dealership.And was sold 4-25-70  were it was ordered and shipped to

Dave, is that the casting date, or the assembly date stamped on the ID pad?  The 5/20 date seems more like what the casting date would be.  Just double-checking...

I've also learned a ton about the fine details of Daytonas from Mr. Patik - he's a treasure trove of information.

So did Creative then put the door stickers on prior to shipping out...if they put a sticker on at all? That is the only way I can see a 9/69 date on it from what you guys are saying. They would have left the Chrysler plant long before that IMO.

Do you remember or can you confirm what the assembly date was on the ID pad?  Lower left corner, to the left of where it says "HP"?

Those plug wires are almost irreplaceable.  The reproduction '69 plug wires are made with Q1 and Q3 dates only, so a car built in May/June (such as yours and mine) is left with no choice but to use Q1 dated wires.  I have only heard of one guy with an NOS set of Q2-69 plug wires, and he (understandably) wasn't interested in selling.

I love studying the details on original cars.  There are still some significant untouched and undamaged areas on my car that give me a lot of reference material, but nothing like a complete car such as yours, Jim McCauley's, or Mr. Duellman's (except for the questionable color change) and others.  Lots of good stuff to see and take note of.

Ty & Chris, Mr. Duellman's car is shown as having been shipped out from Creative on September 3.  Could have been a tie-in to the ship date, I just haven't paid attention enough to that topic to say one way or another.

I was figuring sooner or later in this thread Dave would be posting a picture of his rear seat in his Daytona, and how it is missing the buttons.

I'm confused on the whole VIN sticker subject. Haven't had a Daytona of my own to study in depth. I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason for many things on the Daytona's and the VIN stickers certainly fit in the categorie of no set rules.

Some neat details was the primer line under the backside of the hood.and very little paint under battery tray.The other stuff was poor workmanship due to lack of quailty control .No holes holding the retainer for the headlight vacuum hoses.On the original numbered rad support.Nicks from a drill bit on window frames while attaching a pillars.Screws in windshield gasket showing from a pillars.Along with finger prints from smoothing the caulk hiding those screws.Overspray on nose seals and poorly masked and taped out black out tail light area .Headlight doors are engraved with SAE-XX29

At $675,000 ??  If it sells quickly then the market for Daytonas has taken another huge leap higher IMHO.

I was reading again last night about the Black/white/white 4-speed HemiDaytona that sold for +/- $250k not all that long ago.  Wouldn't that be a bargain today?

Gene are you refering to the HEMI Daytona that went over to England? If so then yes it is a bargain in todays dollars, but at the time it was a big price to pay for even a HEMI Daytona even if it was Black.

Yes, that's the one, and I know it was considered a lot for a car back then.  Here's the link to the article I was reading for the umpteenth time:

http://wwnboa.com/mmfr.htm

If 440 Daytonas are indeed selling for almost 3 times what a HemiDaytona was selling for just 5 years ago, saying the market has gone up is a huge understatement.  Granted, Mr. Duellman's car is very low mileage, but it is not its original color and the "wrong" color paint job has been re-painted once already.

Just my observation anyway...
