A meticulously preserved 1969 Dodge Daytona, known for its striking Hemi Orange color, is set to dazzle at the upcoming Mecum Indy 2024 auction.

An iconic 1969 Dodge Daytona, one of only 505 produced, will be a highlight of the Mecum Indy 2024 auction on Friday, May 17th. This remarkable hardtop boasts its original drivetrain, including a matching numbers 440/375 HP V-8 engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, making it a prized piece for any classic car enthusiast.

The Daytona stands out with its vibrant Hemi Orange exterior and a contrasting white interior, including a rear wing that adds to its distinctive appearance. This vehicle not only features a rare color combination but also comes equipped with the A33 Track Pak, which includes 3.55 gears, enhancing its performance credentials. Additional comforts such as power steering and power brakes make it a complete package of both power and ease.

Originally sold at Manzi Dodge, Inc. in Lowell, Massachusetts, this Dodge Daytona maintains a deep connection to its roots, documented by a copy of its broadcast sheet and a reproduction window sticker. The car’s significance is further underscored by its historical context; the Daytona was created in mid-1969 to legalize parts for circle track racing, and each unit started life as a deluxe Charger R/T model. This background makes the vehicle not only a spectacular example of automotive design and engineering but also a piece of racing history.

With an estimated value between $375,000 and $425,000, this 1969 Dodge Daytona is expected to draw significant attention at the auction, appealing to collectors and racing enthusiasts alike.
