1969 Dodge Nuremberg Daytona Project Car Part-7

This is Part 7 of the story on our new 1969 Dodge Charger Nuremberg Daytona Project Car. In future Parts we will continue to update you on the Project Nuremberg Daytona itself and the restoration process. In this Part we will tell you about how this car started life and in Part 8 we will outline our goals for the completed Project. (Start with Part 1)

Our Project Nuremberg Daytona started life at the Dodge assembly plant as a 1969 Dodge Charger RT (as did all Daytonas). They then shipped it to Creative Industries and converted it to a Dodge Daytona. Below is a photo of the Data Plate and a copy of the Production Broadcast Sheet (Build Sheet).

The original Data Plate removed from Project Nuremberg Daytona for restoration.

From this we can determine the Daytona started life with a T7 Dark Bronze exterior and tan interior. This is the ONLY Daytona painted in this color scheme. There was a second T7 Dark Bronze Daytona but it was built with a black stripe/wing and black interior. That car has been found but remains unrestored. It also had a 440 engine with the very desirable 4-speed transmission.

This is the original Broadcast Sheet for Project Nuremberg Daytona.

What does all of this information tell us? If you have the appropriate decoding data, you learn that this is a Special Order 1969 Dodge Charger RT that would be converted into a Dodge Daytona. The build specs also reveal the options they built the car with.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
