1969 Dodge Charger Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
For 1969, Dodge decided to make only minor improvements to the Charger. The grille now had a chrome center divider. The 68 model was not successful in stock car racing such as NASCAR, and two new Charger models were available. The Charger 500 was a performance machine with some more aerodynamic shape styling and some cues similar to the Dodge Coronet. But THE big news was the Dodge charger Daytona which is easily identified by its larger vertical tail stabilizer and front nose extension. With just over 500 examples of the Daytona produced, the $4000 vehicle was available with either the Hemi or the 440 engine. 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, and broke 28 land speed records, most of which still stand today. Performing spectacular jumps in nearly every episode, a 1969 Charger R/T was featured in television series 'The Dukes of Hazzard' which aired from 1979 to 1985. Named 'General Lee', it was Hemi-orange and had a Confederate flag painted on the roof. The car is mainly driven by Bo Duke whose character was an ex-stock car driver. The orange Charger, complete with rollbar and hot-rodded motor, was his old race car. The windows were always open, and the doors were (allegedly) welded shut.
