1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

The 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger was a high performance version of the Dodge Charger produced in the summer of 1969 for the sole purpose of winning NASCAR races and win it did. With its drag coefficient of 0.28, it was the first stock car to break the 200 mph barrier and won its debut race in September 1969 at Talladega. Due to its supremacy on the tracks, it was banned from racing and only ran NASCAR one year. In one last hurrah, the $71K and K Insurance Daytona went to Bonneville, with Crew Chief Harry Hyde and driver Bobby Isacc, and broke 28 land speed records, most of which still stand today.

Plymouth made a similar car in 1970 called the Superbird. Both cars were built for NASCAR racing and both cars had the tall rear wing and the pointy nose.
