Randomly found in an Alabama barn, and unmoved for decades, a recently found 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona is expected to sell for $150,000 – $180,000! A man from Greenwood, AL found the classic muscle car wasting away in a barn roughly 60 miles south of Montgomery. He discovered it when checking out another car nearby. After much convincing, the old man who owned the barn agreed to sell the relic.
Although the car is covered in rust and moss with a ragged interior, and an engine that likely doesn’t run anymore, it still has a high asking price. Why? Well, as MSN Autos tells us, even if it’s a rust bucket, it’s an incredibly rare one, as Dodge made just 503 Charger Daytonas that year, most of which were meant to meet NASCAR racing standards.
The car has a flames painted on the front fenders, a 440 Magnum V-8 engine with nearly all its original parts, and a mere 20,553 miles on the odometer, although no one suspects it’ll be adding anymore any time soon.
