Charlie Lyons, owner of Charlie's Classics Cars, has recently acquired a rare Dodge Charger Daytona, found in a barn in Alabama. Mr. Lyons was investigating a '70 Chevelle when he was told about the Daytona. Being a classic car enthusiast, he was thrilled at the possibility and immediately went to go visit the owner. 

The Daytona owner took Mr. Lyons to his barn where the classic muscle car had been sitting. The owner was reluctant to sell the car, as he was still attached to the vehicle. After some time and persuasion, he agreed to sell it to Mr. Lyons for restoration. This car is extremely rare, as only 503 were ever built. This particular car has only had two owners and about 20,000 miles on it. 

Since the Daytona has been kept in the barn, it is weathered with surface rust. The driver seat is a bit torn, but overall the vehicle is complete, down to the clamps on the radiator hoses. It has been customized with flames on the front fenders and has a 440 Magnum V8 engine. 

Mr. Lyons has been working on restoring the Daytona and it will be going up for auction this spring. It is expected to go for somewhere between $150,000 and $180,000.
