IN A RUSH

Muscle Car Review - - Daytona Dash -

The Day­tona’s un­re­stored con­di­tion re­veals ev­i­dence of its rushed build, namely less-than-stel­lar assem­bly qual­ity.

n Peel­ing paint on the front fender legs speaks to a lack of primer be­fore paint­ing, along with clearly vis­i­ble ink stamps on the sheet­metal. Prep work was min­i­mal.n Primer is vis­i­ble on the rear edges of the hood and in some ar­eas of its un­der­side, in­di­cat­ing that the hood was only sprayed in one di­rec­tion and not com­pletely cov­ered. It was the same for the trunk lid on this car.n The flush rear win­dow, laid at 28 de­grees in­stead of the stan­dard Charger’s 45-de­gree back glass, helped re­duce lift and was in­tro­duced on the Charger 500 model. A close look at the up­per cor­ner of this ex­am­ple shows wit­ness lines of the plug’s in­stal­la­tion.
