1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona 426 Sells for $900,000 at Mecum Kissimmee.

Published 24 January 2015

23rd January 2013 was the day the cars from Tim Wellborn’s Muscle Car Museum in Alexander City, Alabama came up for auction at Mecum Auctions, Kissimmee, Florida.

Most of these were six figure cars. The one of a kind 1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona 426/425HP made the biggest money: $900,000.

But the 1970 Mustang Boss 429 made all of $420,000 and a fully optioned 1971 Dodge Challenger $375,000.

Tim Wellborn explained that 1969 to 1971 was the short era of ‘stock’ NASCAR race cars that could be bought by the public from their local dealer to use on the street.

But by 1972 it was all over, with legislation and insurance killing off these overpowered, undertyred 150mph cars, and NASCAR changing its rules, so that ‘stock’ no longer meant a car that the public could actually buy.
