A wide array of models were offered as part of the 1969 Dodge Charger line-up, including the base model, a more luxurious Special Edition ‘SE,’ two racing editions – the 500 and the Daytona – and the hot-performing R/T. However, only one body style was offered – a two-door hardtop.

The 1969 Charger continued to use the body from the previous year, which had been beautifully restyled from a flashback style to a semi-fastback design. The design differences are easily distinguished by a new divided grille and taillight treatment that was used in 1969.

The high-performance R/T featured dual exhausts with chrome tips, Red Line tires, a special handling package and heavy duty, manually-adjusted brakes. This Charger is powered by a 375 horsepower, 440 cubic-inch V-8 engine and features a Hurst four-speed transmission. The factory price for a Dodge Charger R/T in 1969 was nearly $3,600.

About the Artist:

James Knake is a professional illustrator/graphic designer with a B.F.A in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design. He has had a fascination with cars since he was a young boy. Always playing with car toys and building models. While in high school, he was hanging around with the guys who had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs, anything fast with a big motor! James became obsessed with Muscle Cars from the 60’s and 70’s. After high school he purchased an old beat up 1967 Pontiac Firebird for $300 and proceeded to spend his time fixing it up and learning on the go. Bodywork, engine rebuilding, electrical systems, you name it. He sold that car years ago, but his love for classic muscle cars continues to this day. Now James has turned his attention to illustrating them. He decided to start painting some of his favorite cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
