    The important visual cues, the ones that made it a 500 (for Daytona 500) are the flush grill and headlights (recessed on all other
    Chargers) and rear glass. Aerodynamic modifications that make it immediately identifiable and unique.

    Sorry but it is a 69 and the grill and headlights are correct. As Michael Parrillo said, The 69 Charger 500 was a short run production car to qualify it to run in NASCAR. This car is so rare that a lot of people don’t even know about it. They think that a 500 is just a trim package which is true with other years. The 69 500 even used the rear window from a Plymouth B body.

    Wow… Nice but I think it’s a tribute/clone… Those 17+ inch rims are far from stock… That silver/grey paint I don’t think is stock either… It could be an original that someone dorked around with, but those have become so rare I don’t see any logic in doing so.

    It’s a ’69. The 500 model was designed in ’68, but the model year of this car is 1969.

    100% sure its a 1969. All 68 Chrysler products had round side marker lights.

    It is a 69 vintage and the looks are not up to the standard Charger. Actually the coronet looked better.

    This is a 1969 Dodge Charger 500. It was made only for one year and it was built to race in NASCAR. They had to make a street version for sale to the public in order to satisfy NASCAR homologation rules. The 500 option included the 426 Hemi, a 727 transmission with extra cooling capacity, a flush mounted rear glass and highback bucket seats with molded in headrests. All other ’69s had the lo-back buckets with an adjustable headrest. The tail lights were the same as the regular ’69. In 1970, the 500 option became a cosmetic trim package – basically the forerunner to the 75 and up SE package.

    If this was a normal 68 Charger, you’d be be right. But this is the rare Charger 500, a factory mod made in an attempt to become more competitive with FoMoCo’s NASCAR entries. Note the exposed headlights and Coronet grill. In other pics you can see the revised rear roofline and back glass area, all modifications made to improve aerodynamics. Didn’t really work, so the next step was the Charger Daytona.
