Je ne sais plus d'où on avait eu l'info "Plymouth Road Runner Superbird 1970", mais c'est vrai que sur d'autres sites ils parlent d'une Dodge Charger...

The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was only made for 1969, and was followed in 1970 by the 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird.

Patrick and Mike McKinney built this car from a 1969 318 column shift Charger. The rear window plug was made by welding the hatchback portion of a Vega over the original rear window opening. The trunk lid was shortened, and fiberglass Dayton nose and wing were added. The fenders and hood are off of a 1970 Charger.

The were going to make a Complete Daytona Clone but lost interest so the car sat. Then Patrick's 1970 Superbird was used for a brief scene in the Gone in 60 Seconds remake, which led to him renting the Daytona clone to the Joe Dirt production. The car was sold a couple of years ago and is now owned by a someone on the east coast. Pictures can be seen at www.eastcoastmopar.com

Well, the car in this pic is not a Plymouth Superbird. It is a Dodge Charger made-for-movie-fake Daytona. So please change the description accordingly.

Dodge made the Daytona from 1969-1971. Not just '69. Trust me, my neighbor has a '71 Daytona.

Okay, here's the deal: The Joe Dirt car is a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Wether or not it is a real Daytona, I do not know. I doubt it, considering prices for a half-way decent Daytona are now upwards of $100,000. And yes, they only made the Daytona for 1 year, 1969. Dodge was going to make it for 1970, but Nascar upped the homologation production numbers to 1000, and Dodge execs didn't think they would be able to sell that many, so they nixed the Daytona for 1970. Dodge had trouble even getting rid of the 505 1969 Daytonas, with many of them sitting on dealer lots for 18 monthes to 2 years before dumping them at ridiculously low prices. There was NEVER ANY 1971 Daytonas from the factory, but a company called Dayclona makes a body kit to make a 1971 Daytona. Later in the 70s, the "Daytona" became an options & stripe package on the 75-77 Chargers, but without the wing and nose cone. Also, although the Daytona and Superbird look almost identical, the only parts that interchange are the headlight buckets. The nose cones, wings, fender scoops, and window plugs are different. Anyone that says otherwise obviously has no idea what they are talking about.

moparguy1973 you are correct in both of your post. I worked for Mopar by the way. And the car pictured is a '69 Dodge Charger Daytona.They were only made for one year, period. This one is most likely a fake. The Daytona nose has an opening for air to the rad in the leading edge of the nose and the rear wing is not quite as wide at the base as the Superbird. The Plymouth RoadRunner Superbird is a '70 one year only car as well. It actually uses corronet fenders and hood with a header bar welded to the hood as the nose could not be made to fit to the stock RoadRunner fenders and produce the areo numbers that they wanted. There is a body line down the center of the hood that the RoadRunners did not have. The '70 RoadRunner hood had a power buldge to it with the engine call out and turn signals in the back of it. I owned one. The air intake for the Superbird is under the nose and is not as effective as the Daytona nose. The rear wing side plates are wider at the base.

this was originally a plum crazy purple daytona ( the color can be seen inside car and on left door) and was painted to look crappy. technically its almost in mint condition. my uncle and i went to an auto auction in cali and looked at a certified original.

This was a plum crazy Charger R/T, either a 1969 or a 1970. It is NOT a original Daytona.

Been messing around on the internet all day for lack of anything better to do and ran across some interesting info on the Joe Dirt \"Charger Daytona\". I found a site that has a pic of the VIN tag (sorry, no fender tag), here it is: http://www.californiaclassix.com/archive/69_Joe_Dirt_Daytona.html
Or, if you don\'t feel like going to the site, it is: XP29F9B103293, which, when decoded is: X= 66-70 Charger; P= Charger (68 or 69); 29= 2 dr sports coupe; F= engine, 318 cid/230 hp 2 bbl V-8 (only on 68 and 69); 9= year, 1969; B= assembly plant, Dodge Main-Hamtramck, MI; 8th through 13th digits are the sequential production number of the vehicle.
If any or all of this is too confusing, just follow the link. So, moving on. Actual production #\'s are a bit sketchy, but here is a link that may give some insight: http://aerowarriors.com/watn.html and it\'s hard to argue with Galen Govier so the real answer is...who really knows how many Daytonas were made? I myself am inclined to go with the number 503, which amounts to 500 in 69, the minimum number of street Daytonas to qualify for NASCAR...and 3 in 1970 that slipped through before the plug was pulled on that. Again, here is a link that helps me to believe that: http://wwnboa.org/70csed.htm and: http://www.superbird.com/70dcd.html. And oh by the way, apparently, they were allowed to run any model year for several seasons if they wished so there would not have been any real need for Dodge to produce the 1000 car requisite for 1970 in order to run Daytonas that year. Again, on the internet...all day...and love Mopars. So, there are also records that show that Carron and Company (they built the nosecones) was still making nosecones until 1971, probably as replacements for race cars... http://wwnboa.org/wttn.htm. Okay, so where am I going with all of this? Well, I\'m not completely sure any more so we\'ll leave it at this: Joe Dirt\'s car was a base model 69 Charger made to look like a beat up 69 Charger Daytona. Yes, there actually were a few 1970 Charger Daytona\'s (3 known to exist), but the Mopar purists will strongly disagree because of the rear window \"tunnel\" which reduces the aerodynamic effect meant for racing. 1969 (and 1970) Charger Daytona\'s were assembled by a company called Creative customs, who started with Charger R/T models, which means Dirt\'s couldn\'t be a real Daytona anyway as his was a base model 318 2 barrel. Yes, there is a company that makes and has made several 71 Daytona\'s, I think they are called Dayclona. they also have a one of none 71 GTX convertible in a recent issue of Mopar (Action or Muscle, I don\'t remember which). Last but not least, my 1970 Charger 500 is on page 74 (bottom, Pentastars) of the December 07 issue of Mopar Muscle, I feel like a proud father!

It's a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona! The Daytona was only made for 1969 (503 Daytonas). The new mark for 1970 was to build one car for every dealer! That means that Dodge needed to produce over 1500 Daytonas! And they had much problems for sell 503 Daytonas!!!

hes KINDA right because the Charger Daytona was only FACTORY produced in '69 but there are a few '71 Roadrunners and Chargers running around with big old wings and nose cones im assuming they're custom or prototype but i have no idea for sure

Joe dirts car is a real 1969 charger in great shape, that was turned into a daytona, it was painted with special movie paint, it carries an origional plum crazy paint. As for your neighbors 71 charger thats all it is, they made the daytona package in 69 using a 69 charger with 70 fenders and hood for the nose to fit, and in 70 they used the satalite road runner coupe with a different nose and wing. No production charger daytonas were made after 69 and no plymouth superbirds were made after 70. As for your neighbors 71 charger, that is all that it is a charger, a wing and nose cone can be had for any of the chargers 68-74 from aftermarket fiberglass shops, there is an outfit in Canada that makes a cone for the 69 or even your neighbors 71, so check it and let your neighbor down easy (actually he already knows it's not real) you just need to let it go.....

moparguy knows his stuff...I think the way to tell that it is a clone is the fact that the wing breaks off when the gate arm comes down on the car. If it were a true Daytona the wing would have been bolted to the frame through the trunk and most likely would not have broken off by simply being hit with a long piece of flimsy wood; and would probably have pushed the arm up, if it were metal, before actually breaking the wing. If you look on all Daytonas there are holes through the back of the car next to the trunk lid and the bottom of the trunk to the frame where the wings were bolted. Some Chargers that were built after Dodge stopped the production of Daytonas were built with leftover Daytona parts. Some of the Chargers have the holes in the bottom of the trunk for where the wings were bolted. From what I've learned anyway.

The "X" in the vin is for "Charger" The "P" is for "premium" all 68-69 Chargers are premium unless its a special. that would have an "S" in that spot. An R/T has an "S" in that spot. No "S" means its a fake R/T. "XX" would be 500 or Daytona. All 69 Daytonas used 70 fenders and hoods so the Daytona nose would fit. Thats why dodge designed the 70 with a perimeter front bumper. so they wouldnt have the problem of the Pymouth Superbird, using coronet front fenders and custom hoods

General Lee doesn't know what he's talking about. A "B" body Dodge Daytona was only built in 1969. If your neighbor has a '71 Daytona, it's because he built it, not Dodge.

As others have already said, this particular car is a '69 Daytona clone built off a base Charger.
