Before introducing the iconic, aerodynamic design of the Charger Daytona, Dodge worked to improve the Charger R/T, which had proved to be less than successful on the NASCAR ovals. That model, made available for one year only, was later known as the Charger 500.

Just 392 examples of the 1969 Dodge Charger 500 were produced, and this one is especially rare for being one of only 119 examples equipped with the J-Code 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission.

Finished in Alpine White over a red interior with a red tail stripe, this Charger–believed to be the only example with this color and powertrain combination–received “a meticulous and superbly detailed rotisserie restoration” in the early ’90s.

Accompanied by documentation that includes the owner’s manual, owner history and broadcast sheet, this 1969 Dodge Charger 500 is available through RM Sotheby’s as part of its upcoming Auburn Fall auction. Expected selling price: $160,000 to $180,000.
