There is something satisfying about watching an old, abandoned Mopar taking the first steps toward a rebirth. Watch as her new owner pulls her from her tomb and removes 20 years of crud. Video after the jump!
This numbers matching V-code Charger is expected to command a six figure price when it goes to auction later this month. One of 103 produced with the six barrel carb set-up and A36 Performance Axle package, it received a complete restoration recently while showing only 73,000 miles on the odometer.

At the recent Mecum auction in Kissimmee, this still barn fresh 1969 Daytona crossed the block, fetching $99,000. (Yes, the “barn find” photos are staged). The new owner, in watching people at the auction walk past beautifully restored cars to examine this crusty old B body, has decided to keep the car as is and is not going to restore it.

Automotive Archaeology began three years ago by featuring this 1969 Charger Daytona resting outside a Wisconsin barn. The editor, Ryan Brutt, had kept in contact with the family but sadly, he has now discovered that the car’s original owner has passed away. Here’s hoping his family finds a good home for the car.

Street Legal TV located this 1970 Charger on Craigslist. Once owned by Lynda (wife of Richard) Petty’s brother Randy Owens, it was then transferred to Kyle Petty before being sold. It eventually returned to the Petty fold and was restored by Petty’s Garage. That’s a pretty good history for a Dodge Charger! It’s now available on Craigslist for $45,000. More pics after the jump!
Owner Paul Bischof wanted a muscle car and only a Mopar would do (smart man). He was able to purchase this 1970 Charger R/T at the January 2015 Mecum Auto Auction in Kissimmee, FL. Once he got it home, he discovered he had one very highly optioned B body. The car is a low mileage survivor (short of some paint, brake pads, some belts and hoses, a ballast resistor, and one tail light bulb!). Find out more about his treasure at Mopar Magazine.
