Cool info. Weren’t the earlier Hemi engines the same way.....earlier casting dates (by a couple years) than the actual engine builds? Pretty sure Daryl sold it to Werner.

The data tends to be 9 months to a year or so, except for the 71 cars.

That $220K sale price probably didn't even cover the restoration labor costs. When I had it I had toyed with the idea of restoring it back to 1968 configuration, but it had been completely tubbed in the back, with a full cage. I even bought a 68 Dart body to use the firewall to trunk underbody section from but the cost was going to be insane to undo all that work. Plus I could not find a reputable body man to attempt it. From the firewall to the rear tail panel - it would have had to have been replaced.

The amusing anecdote from all this is that the money I got from selling the Hemi Dart went into buying this car for 20K a few months later...which I then sold to Steven Juliano (RIP) a few months after that.

Speaking of Todd Werner,wasn't he the one who paid $1,200,000.00 plus for the Ray Allen/Truppi Kling 1970 Chevelle back in 2006?

Winning bidder @ the 7:52 mark.

..and yes that's Charley.
