Selling for a friend of mine in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is a real R/T in it's factory original 1969 acrylic enamel B5 Blue paint, with the original black R/T tail stripe still in place. The car is an unbelievable piece of muscle car history, straight out of the past. It is a real 4-speed car with the factory buddy seat, and a 3.54 Sure Grip Dana 60 rear end, which is a very rare combination. Beside the 4 speed and the exceptionally cool color combination, it is a typical R/T in regards to most of it's stack of options, with one exception. It is not coded for a vinyl top and prior to installing the current black vinyl top, lead was observed in both sail panels at the factory seam as only vinyl top delete cars, 1969 Charger 500’s and 1969 Daytona's would have.

A previous owner had painted the top black, and poked their own “hole spacing” for the vinyl trim. The holes were not spaced properly (uniform in position) like the factory does it. I suspect that the roof paint became weak looking, or a previous owner just wanted to change the look. A new correct black vinyl top was put on the car a few years back. It really compliments the original black R/T tail stripe on it. The car is really great and the owner loves it to death, but is selling it due to getting into a change of scenery with his current car collection.
The car is driven fairly regularly and has proven to be reliable for a 48 year old car. So, if you would like? Continue it's story and fly in and drive it home if you desire? The paint is very bright and quite good shape for 48 years old. Besides the small dent in the passenger side quarter panel, the car also has as you would expect some wear, small chips and a lightly cracked stripe (see photo). The interior is B7 Dark Blue, which really compliments the B5 exterior paint quite well, and is mostly original as it appears in the photos. Although, part of the front seats have be repaired with an incorrect B5 vinyl by a previous owner. The dash is in excellent condition, with all the gauges clear and easy to read. The original B7 Dark Blue dash pad is uncracked and very nice. The headliner, back seat, upper door panels, etc, etc, are all in very nice condition and original as it came with from the factory.
The motor was replaced at one some point in it's life. The original numbers matching 1969 E440 (HP) Magnum engine is long gone. The previous owner intentionally blew it up (absolute friggin' stupid ass idiot), and replaced it with a rebuilt mid to late 70's model cast crank 440-4V (non-HP) big block engine. An attempt was made to search out for the original motor, but it was unsuccessful unfortunately. The 440 engine currently has full length headers on it, with a brand new exhaust system that was installed years ago. Car sounds very mellow and is not obnoxiously loud. There is a 18 spline Hemi 4-speed transmission in the car currently and it is the original numbers matching one to the car. I have seen the full VIN# stamped in it in person and can confirm that it's numbers matching to the car 100%. It matches up with the car's original dash VIN# plate and original fender tag as well. The 3.54 Sure Grip Dana 60 rear end is still the original to the car and is strong with no issues at all.
The car shows some small bolt on 1970’s/1980’s modifications, such as M/T valve covers and a couple of other items. The front bumper, by the looks of the chrome may have been replaced at some point. Besides from some added "Day 2 items", that I have been okay with on the car over the years? I believe the car presents itself as a nearly original car as the factory built it. The brake system was completely rebuilt with new master cylinder, new drums, complete wheel brake kits and three rubber brake hoses a few years back.
The car has been researched and tracked back several owners to approximately around 1980. During this time and until now, it has been living a garage tucked away life from harmful traffic, sun, rain, salt, and unloving owners. This car basically has had two owners for the last 36 years. The original fender tag is still in place and all body VIN#'s do match. No build sheet was ever found in the car. This is a legit California car and sold new out there somewhere back in late 1968. That means it did not have a unsilenced air cleaner, and chrome R/T exhaust tips from the factory like is on it right now. The car is a very reliable driver. It honestly could be driven from the West Coast to East Coast without any problems. The rebuilt motor is pretty much stock and is not fast. It does run really good though, and makes this car a very nice cruiser around town or out on the highway.
The Appliance Wheel Torq Thrust wheels in the first picture here go with the car. They have good tires on them with no issues. Also included is the original 14 inch B5 Blue painted steel wheels to the car. All 4 including the original B5 blue spare rim too. They are pictured here as well. The wood grain steering wheel currently in the car does not go with it. The original B7 Blue "half moon horn ring" style steering wheel will be put back in the car if the car does sell. That is the original steering wheel to this car. It did not have a wood grain one from the factory as that was added for current owner preference only.
By the way, the heater does work and works pretty good. So, if you live in a colder climate and need heat inside the car? Not a problem at all because it does work. Frame rails are mint with no rust at all underneath. Car does have some small areas of rust, but it's mostly just small scale rust here and there. The body on this car is absolutely friggin' amazing! Floors are solid as heck and the trunk floor is still intact as well. Some rust is around the back window area, but this is just minor and no holes are currently in those areas. It's simply amazing how well this car has survived over the last 50 years.
Car is offered for sale, but this is not a forced sale. It does not need to go away for financial reasons at this moment in time. My friend is perfectly fine with keeping and enjoying it for several more years to come. Possible trades would be considered on this 1969 Dodge Charger R/T. Up or down trades on a 1987 Buick GNX, a nice colored 440 Magnum or 426 Hemi 1969 Charger 500, a J-code 1969 Hemi Charger R/T builder or even a rough 1969 Daytona Charger builder would work as well.
I do not own this car. I am just helping my friend potentially sell it. Price is FIRM at $50,000. No tire kickers or dreamers please. Do not waste my time or my friend's time. If you are serious about purchasing or trading for this car or need more pictures of it? Please send me a personal message to my Facebook page or leave an e-mail for me to contact you at. Serious buyers can be put in touch with the owner through me. If you need to talk to my friend or text him on his cell phone? That is possible, but only if you are serious about the car. Thanks for looking guys and take care.
