This 1969 Dodge Charger 500 nowadays is one of the most desirable and collectible Mopars. But back in the ’69 it was considered for a very ugly car and that’s way has a very small record of sold cars. But now things have changed, and this kind of barn finds is considered as a treasure, covered in a decade’s old dust.
The owner had bought this Charger at the age of 17, which at that time was advertised in the newspaper. He started restoring this Mopar, but unfortunately, he didn’t have the opportunity to finish the restoration. Also, he owns a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird that he bought in the same year as the Charger.
This 1969 Dodge Charger 500 actually it is a very rare car, which were produced only 500 pieces. This particular, it is powered by a Chrysler’s 440 cubic-inch, 7.2 liter big-block Magnum V8 engine. This engine is rated at 375 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque and equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission. The owner brought this Charger at Muscle Car Corvette Nationals where he was awarded for the best Barn Find.
