2010 Challenger Converted to a Dodge Charger Daytona From The Early 70s

Daytona Beach, Florida is a place that every car guy should know. That was a hot point for auto racing some years ago and it still hosts the Daytona 500 which is one of the NASCAR’s premier events. There are a total of 3 generations Daytona that Dodge has produced. The first generation was a total fail – Dodge created a performance model of the Studebaker Lark. The first generation was produced for 3 years, from 1963 to 1966. You might be unfamiliar but a car like that starred in the Fast and Furious 6.

1969 Dodge Charger 500 was not such a successful car, so Dodge decided to create a a high-performance limited-edition version of the Dodge Charger. The car was built as a speed monster with the only purpose of winning NASCAR races. And it happened – the car won its first race. That was Tallabega 500 in the fall of 1969. The car did something insane at the race track – Buddy Baker was sitting behind the wheel of his #88 Chrysler Engineering Dodge Charger Daytona.

During his first race he became the first driver in the NASCAR history who broke the 200 MPH barrier. You might be thinking of another car that looks pretty much the same – 1970 Plymouth Superbird. The Superbird is actually the Daytona successor. There is something interesting in the design of this muscle car – a 23-inch-tall stabilizer wing on the rear deck. Under the hood most of the cars are equipped with a 440 CID Magnum engine, but there is one interesting note to collectors – there was an optional 426 CID Hemi V8 engine that was installed in only 70 rides.
