Back in the good ole' days when stock cars raced in NASCAR, Detroit’s Big 3 produced high-performance muscle machines that could handle the high-speed requirements of Daytona and the other Super Speedways. The 1969 Dodge Charger 500 was the first Dodge muscle car to feature aerodynamics for high-speed racing.
The 1969 Dodge Charger 500 was available with two engine options: a 440ci big-block or a 426ci HEMI. Torqueflight automatics and four-speed manuals were available, though the four-speed cars are extremely rare.
This grand-prize 1969 Dodge Charger 500 was born with a 440ci/4-bbl and a four-speed manual transmission.

According to Motor Trend, Creative Industries under contract from Dodge took Charger R/Ts from the Hamtramck Production Plant, performed the front grille and backlight modifications and then shipped them to a second location where they were repainted and prepped for dealer sale.
“The Charger 500 was developed specifically for NASCAR racing. The 1969 Charger's standard sheet metal—particularly the concave grille opening and the shape of the back window and rear roof section—created aerodynamic problems at high speeds. Chrysler designers addressed those issues by replacing the Charger's stock grille with a Coronet grille mounted flush with the leading edge of the car's nose, and reshaping the backlight and surrounding sheet metal into the form of a fastback.”
According to a letter Chrysler sent to Charger 500 original owners, the factory-specified mods produced an “increase of 3 to 7 mph . . . on the super speedways."
This 1969 Dodge Charger 500 — #44 of 159 Dodge Charger 500 cars known to exist — was owned by NASCAR Legend Ray Evernham.
