Last week a barn-find 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona set to be sold off at Mecum’s upcoming Kissimmee sale in January made headlines for its interesting backstory and astonishing value. It won’t be the only ’69 Charger Daytona to be sold this coming January, however, with Russo and Steele also set to auction off one of the rare homologation specials at their Scottsdale auction.
This Charger Daytona, which is apart of the well-known Lindsten Collection and will be sold off along with a grouping of other impressive Mopar muscle, has undergone a full restoration. That’s unlike the aforementioned barn-find Daytona, which will be presented in the weathered condition in which it was found.
The restoration, completed in Chatsworth, California, saw the car re-painted in its factory Code R4 Bright Red hue. The numbers-matching 440 magnum V8 was also retained, which is linked up to a Torqueflite automatic transmission. Other options include a black bucket-seat interior, wood grain console, a radio/8-Track player, and power steering. The in-depth restoration was also the subject of a restoration profile done by Hemmings in June of 2009, which can be viewed at this link.
The Lindsten 1969 Charger Daytona will cross Russo and Steele’s auction block at their Scottsdale 2016 sale, to be held from January 28th to the 31st.
