Back in 2009, we put together a list of 13 of our favourite one-offs that had been featured in Unique Cars – or advertised for sale (not counting modified cars or ‘specials’). Completing the list was the Dodge Daytona


Dodge Daytona

From Unique Cars #300, Jun/Jul 2009

They don’t build ’em like they used to, and never was this cliché more apt than in the case of the Sydney-based Dodge Daytona that featured in our June, 2002 issue.

The Daytona and other winged warriors’ raison d’etre was to conquer NASCAR’s high-speed ovals, so production cars were limited to those required by the racing authorities.

Powered by a lusty 440ci V8 and with its extended nosecone and mile-high functional spoiler giving it cartoon looks, the sight of this stock car classic weaving its way through Sydney’s peak hour traffic for our photo-shoot is still etched in our minds.

More remarkable is that the ’69 Daytona, imported from the US in the ’70s, was used as a tow vehicle and daily driver for many years. Last we heard, it had returned to the States. Pity.

1. Nissan R34 GT-R Z-Tune
