Richard, a member of HVCC has owned this particular Charger for some time
Sitting for many years in a pretty bad way
Then it was decided to get it back on the road
What you see here is the very good work of Bill, another member of HVCC.
They took two very badly decayed Chargers
One of them was "rescued" from an outback settlement in the Northern Territory.

Pictures tell a better story

The original Daffy getting a bit of surgery


The "outback" donor Charger complete with red dust


What too keep and what to throw away


To even visualize one car from this is amazing


Not much of the original "daffy" was left


and this is where the off cuts gets sent off to make the next fleet of government Hyundai's


So what was left??
The roof, and a few other pieces and panels were used on the "rescued" Charger


Once it was all glued together
Some undercoat thrown over the whole thing


A bit of Sunfire Yellow


And there you have it 2 to 3 years from start to finish
Daffodil #2
