1984 PPG Daytona Pace Car For Sale

by David Zatz on

An exceedingly rare 1984 Dodge Daytona pace car, sponsored by PPG, is for sale in Bayonne, New Jersey, via ebay Motors. The asking price is $45,000 or best offer for this one-off car, which does not share any actual body panels with the actual Dodge Daytona production cars.


Capable of over 170 mph, the car was built by SVI and powered by a Chrysler turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Two sets of related concepts were made. A set of four identical cars were made in 1981 to promote the front-wheel-drive Dodge Charger (one remains at the Walter P. Chrysler museum in Auburn Hills); one is shown above. Below is a copy of the M4S pace car, shown in The Wraith and, after it was made, dubbed the Turbo Interceptor. Thanks, Hans, for the tip.
