It is very true that for every true muscle car fan, an appearance of the old mopar 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona is an event to remember all by itself. I do not have to tell you how rare is this Dodge Charger Daytona, and what a blast it is to drive it. Only 503 units were made back in 1969, from which the NASCAR race models were packing the feared 426 hemi engine that is giving a total output of 425 HP and 490 pound feet of torque. And thanks to it, this 1969 dodge charger daytona became the very first Detroit muscle that broke the 200 mph barrier and dominated the NASCAR scene the following years.
Now are going to show you a short video of a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with a 440 Magnum under the hood, in an appealing shade of blue, rolling down the streets and accelerating as it gets on a straight road. I will not lie to you and tell you that it is one of the best and most memorable moments that you have seen with a 69 Dodge Charger Daytona (even though the video title is Loud Acceleration), but it sure is a nice thing to see such a legend on the street. If you ask me, the adrenaline rush could be felt only by its presence, nothing more is needed.
