Default 'Barn find' 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

'Barn find' 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona doesn't run, but is worth a ton

This “barn find” was actually discovered under a shed, but that doesn’t make it any less of a diamond in the rough.

A rusty, but very original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona that has seen much better days may be seeing them again soon, as it’s set to cross the block at the upcoming Mecum Auctions event Kissimmee, Fla., in January.

I'd like to find something like that!

It is. From the article:

The auction photos were clearly staged in a different location after the sale.

I'd rater see how it was found than staged pics! What i want to know is the story behind it. I came across a news paper from 1970 and was looking threw the classified section and found a Daytona for sale. The owner just bought it and was selling because he was getting deployed to Vietnam. Makes you wonder if he ever made it back. Could be a similar story behind it.

I can not believe that it only sat for four years. You would have to an idiot to let a valuable car like that sit in a partial covering unless of course the owner died and the wife did not know the value of the car.
