The Dodge Daytona was built especially for NASCAR racing. NASCAR required Dodge to build 500 street versions of this car before they could be raced. The unique aerodynamic design with the pointed nose and rear/wing spoiler coupled with the 426 cubic inch Hemi engine made this a very fast car with excellent handling qualities. Mario Rossi owned the Dodge Daytona's driven by Bobby Allison that won at Atlanta and earned 13 Top 10 finishes. The Dodge Daytona and sister car, the Plymouth Superbird, were so dominating that NASCAR outlawed the "Wing Cars" in 1971. A Dodge Daytona, very much like this one, was the first automobile to ever exceed 200MPH on a closed course (Buddy Baker, Talladega Speedway 1969). This Dodge was found in a barn in the Midwest in the early 90's by Pat McKinney of Simi Valley, CA. When the car was found it was wearing 1970 Charger front sheet metal but all the Daytona sheet metal was with the car. No chassis numbers could be found on the car, but gold paint was found on the body and wing, therefore it was believed to be the Mario Rossi/Bobby Allison car raced in 1969-70. Bob McNab purchased the car from McKinney in 1998. Bobby Allison inspected the car shortly thereafter and confirmed that the Daytona was reskinned as a Charger after NASCAR outlawed the winged cars in 1970. After closer inspection he verified this Daytona's authenticity.
