Parked on the showroom floor beside a hulking Monaco wagon or plain-Jane Dart sedan, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona must have looked like it was from another planet . . . or at least another world. Truth be told, that wasn’t far off the mark since back in the late 1960s, car sales were heavily connected with racing and, of course, winning. Since you had to race what you built for street, the Daytona’s slippery shape, and the strange bodywork that went along with it, was solely intended to play along with the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) rules of the day.
