1969 Dodge Charger 500

Rare Original Drivetrain Charger 500 426 HEMI 4 Speed Super Track Pack ///
David "Radar" Roark, fresh off a couple tours flying combat missions over Vietnam, settled in Jacksonville, Florida in the summer of 1970. Anxious to buy a new car, he went out looking for a piece of high-performance iron that would fulfill the massive adrenaline rush fighter pilots know and love. Just so happens he stumbled upon this low-mile Charger 500, which had been traded back to its original dealer because its original owner didn't like driving a stick. So, Roark hauled a little over $4,000 to the showroom and became this Dodge's long-term caretaker. Believe it or not, this 4-speed, Hemi Charger served as David's daily driver until 1985 when, after 35 years of service, he officially retired from the U.S. Navy. Since the car was still all-original, and in great shape, David decided to store it until he could execute a proper restoration. Fast forward 15 quick years when, circa 2000, David moved the car to his home garage and started the process of disassembling it. He quickly realized that he just didn't have the time to finish such an intricate project, so he contacted his good friend Ray Younkin of Pure Muscle Restorations. After Ray's shop adopted the build, it was ultimately decided that David would reluctantly sell his restored, ultra-valuable Charger in hopes of buying a resto-mod he could play with semi-daily. Sadly, life isn't always 'happily ever after'. On January 10, 2006, just a few weeks after selling the Charger, David was killed while flying a T-39 Sabreliner. David's sudden death prompted Ray and the staff at Pure Muscle to go all-out on this Charger for its new owner, knowing how much the car meant to their friend. So, the guys restored this classic back to factory-correct condition: a 100% authentic, numbers-matching Hemi 4-speed Charger 500 that's loaded with options.
