Test Drive 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 V8

It’s not often that we get to look at a car like this one. It’s an original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This beast is one of only 503 Daytona’s built and it’s in truly immaculate condition. It’s still powered by the original 440 V8 4 BBL, factory rated at 375 HP and 480 Lb-Ft of torque. This is one of the famous winged cars, that forced rule changes in Nascar after breaking all the speed records at the time. It’s painted in the correct T5 Copper paint and it’s riding on a beautiful set of Magnum 500 chrome rims, with white letter tires. This is definitely one of the most collectible Mopar’s of all time and one of the most sought after muscle cars of any type. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

I thought you might like a look at this super clean 1968 Dodge Dart GTS. It’s powered by a high-performance 440 V8, equipped with an aluminum intake, 4 BBL carb, and coated headers. All that power is being sent through a four-speed manual transmission. This really is the nicest Dodge Dart that I’ve seen yet. The paint is slick, the interior looks like new, and it’s really jaw dropping under the hood. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

1970 Dodge Challenger 440 V8 Sublime Green Mopar Muscle Car

 I thought you’d like a look at this very clean 1970 Dodge Challenger. Named to “challenge” anyone on the street, this Dodge debuted in 1970 and became an instant classic. Under the hood, you will find a powerhouse of nostalgic engineering, a 440 CID V8 wedge engine. These engines are known for their power but are not as hyped as the popular Hemi. The transmission is a stout 727 TorqueFlite automatic which has been known to handle up to 550 horsepower. The exterior of the car is the factory Sublime Green color that it had in 1970. The interior is comprised of new black vinyl and looks very clean. The interior matches the vinyl top on the exterior of the car. The car was completely restored in 2007 and looks amazing. Before the epoxy paint the car was taken all the way down to bare metal. We even place mirrors along the underside of the car in our showroom to highlight the craftsmanship. The 440 engine has been bored .030 over and offers a mild camshaft and 2 1/2 inch stainless steel exhaust. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
