Matching set for sale: 1969 Charge R/T, Charger 500 and Daytona up for grabs

Michigan-based classic car dealers, Garage Kept Motors, are selling one seriously compelling package: a matching set of 1969 Chargers, all finished in Charger Red over black interiors, all fully-restored with original components, and all bearing Mopar’s 440ci four-barrel high-performance V8 backed by automatic transmissions. The price for all three is listed as US$399,900, or AU$577,500.

The trio represent the zenith of Mopar’s offerings for the 1969 model year; one is a highly-specified and iconic Charger R/T SE with power windows and vinyl roof from factory.

The Charger Daytona, is too one of the 60s most iconic muscle cars, of which just 503 were produced.

The Charger 500 is rarer still, one of just 392 ever made in order to in order for NASCAR homologation.

Of course, the Daytona needs no introduction, but the slightly more obscure Charger 500 actually preceded the be-winged aero racer. The Charger 500 won 18 NASCAR events in 1969 and is most easily distinguished by its more aerodynamic flush-fitting Coronet grille; until Ford’s Aero Warrior trumped it and won 30 races. The Mopar engineers went back to the wind tunnel and emerged with the Daytona.

All three cars are in perfectly matching road-going specification, with the same 440ci four-barrel V8, automatic gearboxes and all finished in Charger Red (R4) over black interiors. The cars have been fully restored yet still retain all original panels due to their outstanding surviving condition prior to restoration.

While AU$577,000 sounds like a lot for three old Dodges; two separate Charger Daytonas were sold at the start of the year, each for over AU$360,000 alone.

Charger 500s aren’t as acclaimed, although they are significantly rarer. At auction, they frequently sell for around AU$150,000 in the US. Add in the iconic and desirable 1969 R/T SE, and the trio begins to make sense.

The three cars are also accompanied by extensive historical documentation, and Garage Kept Motors state that they will not be breaking up the trio, with a sale only to be conducted as a set.

If you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Mopar fan with an empty three-car garage and cash to burn – these might be exactly what the doctor ordered.
