Seems to me there is a fine line between "original" and tragic neglect. Nothing money won't fix, I guess.

This 69 Daytona might be all there and have low miles but MAN! Every single nut and bolt is going to come off and every square inch of metal and plastic is going to be restored/replaced or otherwise altered in order to bring it back to life, destroying "originality".

In the video, the nose cap is rusting which blew away anything I thought I remembered about the Plymouth Road Runner and Dodge Charger winged monstrosities. I could have sworn the noses on those hideously festooned creations were glass or urethane-ish "Endura" composites like the Pontiac GTO's of the day. Chalk that up to foggy memories of reading car mags in the late 60's.

And the really insane part is it will be at least another $180k to refurb it.

Nuts

If you had $180k in like 1974 or 1978 (or when ever the embargo years were) you'd be a millionaire if you just stockpiled some of these for 40 years.

I thought the nose on those were urethane too.
