Description:

1969 Dodge Charger Hemi 500

Among the factors that drive the significance of any collector car are rarity, condition, optional equipment, documentation and history. The car here, an aerodynamically restyled Charger 500, meets every one of those criteria, with minimal ownership, original numbers-matching Hemi driveline, comprehensive restoration, and a proven Mr. Norm’s Grand-Spaulding Dodge pedigree. In general, the opportunity to own any example of this model comes up infrequently; the opportunity to own a Charger 500 of this grade could be considered once-in-a-lifetime.

Released as a 1969 model very late in 1968 to legalize components for Grand National stock-car racing at the 1969 Daytona 500, these cars were produced from standard Charger R/Ts by Chrysler using a subcontractor. By adding a flush grille and rear window, the hope was to make the cars more manageable at speed, but this change required a minimum of 500 street examples be created to legalize the new parts. As a result, Grand-Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, one of the most exciting new-car retailers of the muscle-car era, took delivery of this T5 Copper-painted model with black wraparound Scat stripe and powered by a 426 Hemi. The original engine is still in this 14,500-mile vehicle, backed by the A727 automatic and Super Track Pak 4.10:1 rear gearing; the only significant change from stock are the headers installed by Mr. Norm’s mechanics before the first owner took delivery. The car has been more recently subject to a comprehensive frame-off restoration. Sporting bucket seats and console, Hemi-mandated power steering and brakes, and riding on 15-inch wheels with dog-dish hubcaps, the car has stunning curbside appeal inside and out.

Two broadcast sheets are just the start of the comprehensive paper preserved for this car by only three owners during the last 45 years. The original Chrysler-to-Mr. Norm's invoice, Day 2 sales invoice from Mr. Norm's, window sticker, bill of sale, Illinois legal paperwork including title application and more will be included, as well as a set of period drag slicks and racing photos. Recognized already in the hobby, with a first-place American Performance at Ault Park Concours d'Elegance and inclusion at the Mr. Norm's 50th Anniversary Collection at MCACN in 2014, you will not want to miss out on the chance own this wonderful and rare Hemi-powered NASCAR-bred muscle car.
