Legends of that Hemi ‘Cuda or Superbird stuffed away in some guy’s shed are a common thing in the Mopar world. Some think the days of finding an undiscovered rare Mopar hiding tucked in a backyard or barn is a thing of the past. However, numerous cases of the exact opposite have proven to us that there is still in fact incredible deals out there still just waiting to be discovered; case in point, this 1969 Daytona Charger project that popped up for sale on Hemmings recently with a mere $35,000 price tag!
Scam or prank ads for Hemi Challengers and other expensive and rare Mopars for cheap are quite common. Scammers do this to steal your email addresses and other personal information. When these types of ads pop up online, many are quick to dismiss it as a scam. However, this is not the case. When a gold 1969 Daytona Charger came up on Hemmings for sale for $35,000 in Texas, as usual many assumed it was a scam right away. This, however, from what we’ve been told, appears not to be the case! This particular Daytona listed holds the VIN #XX29L9B386542 and is indeed an original F6 Green 1969 Daytona Charger powered by a 440 with a 4-speed.
The ad simply states the following:
- Location: Texas

- Trans: Manual
- Condition: Project
- Exterior: Gold/Green
- Interior: Black
Description: 1969 Charger Daytona. Send serious inquiries only. This is a project car.

A fellow from one of the Mopar sites saw the ad on Hemmings and decided to try an contact the potential seller, taking the chance on it being a scammer. As it turns out, the seller was completely legit and the Daytona indeed exists. We assume the seller really didn’t know the true value of that old Mopar in his backyard. We’ve been told he was able to secure a deal on the Daytona and will be towing it home to park with his 1970 Superbird! If this has taught us anything, it’s to always follow a lead. Sometimes you might get lucky!
