难得的 1969 Dodge Daytona has been auctioned for a record amount.
The green coupe was sold at the Mecum Auctions Indy event for $ 1.32 百万, eclipsing the model’s previous high mark of $ 900,000.
It wasn’t an ordinary Daytona. Not that any of the NASCAR-inspired sports cars can really be called ordinary, with their trademark aerodynamic nosecones and high rear wings.
This Daytona features a particularly rare configuration and is also considered to be the best Daytona built that year, 与 more options than any other car.
The car is one of 70 that were equipped with a 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 and one of just 22 that paired the engine with a four-speed manual transmission, along with its power front disc brakes, a Sure Grip rear axle, Hurst shifter and other performance parts.
Its green vinyl bucket-seat interior (code C6G) is the only one of its kind and features power seats, power windows, an AM/8-track radio and air conditioning, which was still a luxury in the era.
The final price paid for the fully restored Daytona was at the exact high end of the pre-auction estimate and broke the previous high mark of $ 900,000 那 actor David Spade bought another four-speed 1969 Hemi Daytona for in 2015.
