The Charger 500 was built to deliver the goods at NASCAR. The prototype was a 1968 Charger R/T with a 426 Hemi. Around 566 models were produced to qualify to race, but it didn’t quite cut the mustard on the track which resulted in the 1970 Daytona winged warrior. The ad. says 119 were produced with a 426cid hemi. with Wikipedia, saying only 67 were produced, 40 with an automatic transmission, 27 with a 4-speed. (if so, this is 1 of 40 Charger 500s.)

This one was produced on Sept 26, 1968 and sent to Creative Industries at the time where the ‘flush mounted grilles, special trim mountings and a rear window and trunk lid shortened for better aerodynamics.’ The car has a replacement engine block but the original one comes with the auction. Presumably, everything else is original on the car. Clearly the results of a meticulous restoration, this 500 has been in two Concours d’Elegance shows being ribboned and trophied both times. This kind of speaks for itself in the level of quality this 500 has been taken to.

Personally, the Charger 500 isn’t as cool looking at the front-end as a regular ’69 Charger with its split sunk in grille, but flush mounted grilles were the order of the day for aerodynamic purposes.

This Charger is clearly a rare classic and not just in fine condition, but also part of NASCAR history and the racing breed of muscle cars at the time. At a current bid of $82k, this one could easily hit mid $90K or maybe even higher.
