That is a nice car and a classic too. I would have to buy this as well so I agree with you. Sure was a monster on the track with the extended nose and the spoiler on the back deck.

Don't know much about 'Perry raceway' but I do know Mopar is performance tuning division for Dodge Products and I do have a love of the Daytona and muscle cars in general actually.

I gather this was a Pace Car from the Daytona Speedway.

Yes, back in 1968 or 1969 when the Charger was new. Did you know that they were only about $3200 to $3500 new back then. I friend in High School and I both looked at this but in the plain version with out the nose and spoiler and also the Challenger that came out at the same time. It had a six cylinder motor and standard 3 speed on the column shift. The Charger had a V-8 with floor consul or column shift automatic.

More poke in the Charger then I take it.

pedal to the metal and all that must able to lift off in one of those things , especially the super bird... and interesting to know those prices must be lower suspect than by the time the car had finished full volume production.

Back in 1969 and 1970 when these were produced the charger had great horse power and was under $3800 here in Canada. The challenger was a smaller engine therefore less powerful but still was a pretty fast car for a straight six cylinder motor. It also came in a four cylinder standard transmission model too. That was under $3300 if I remember right. A Triumph Bonneville bike was about $1600 and in 1972 I bought a 650 Yamaha (the Bonneville was almost $200 then) for about $1500. Prices were high then just like now. I only earned about $1.50 per hour so took a lot of hours to get one. Even a used 1965 Mustang was about $1500 then. A road Runner, different Dodge car, was about $3000 used but hopped up. I looked at all to buy and bought the Yamaha. Suited my needs and budget better.
