606 June 6th car built on a Fri. Its was purchased and picked up 4 -25-70 Shipping date is 8-30-69.

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...

I would say yes, but without being able to see the rest of the car I can't say for certain. However it wasa black HEMI Daytona 4 speed with a white wing.
