Original owner, 90 daytona shelby VNT. Black/Black. It came from factory with dark blue floor mats... I went back when they preped the car for me and that is what it had. Oil pan is bad at moment, cracked it going down county road...
Bought new at Northwest Dodge in metro Detroit, Jan 1990. Only spent a few months there before coming home to Arkansas.
I also bought mine new in 12/89, build date was 9/25/89.
White with Bourdeaux Red Interior.
Besides knowing were all the other Daytona VNT's are it would be nice to see how many are with original owners.
Not the original owner naj, but I have a white shelby vnt also.
White with maroon leather interior stock, but I swapped it out to black leather from a donor '91 iroc/shelby. Kept the 90 specific parts though like the center console and radio bezel. (Replaced the center console carpet with black from board members here)
Complete rebuild last fall by Todd Nelson (4-Lbodies) of the engine with new pistons, brand new vnt turbo, balance shafts removed, porting, etc. Also replaced the gas tank and straps with new ones, new fuel lines and brake lines, and went through all electrical including re-soldering all of the connections in the instrument panel. (Thanks for the tip naj).
Haven't run it yet, still waiting for a few parts but it should be back together in a month or so.
My White w/ red leather VNT is in Columbus, Ohio It is my daily driver (summer only, I buy a beater winter car then sell it in the spring and get the Daytona back out) I bought mine from Kansas Missouri, It had been a Florida car before that after it was finally released to the public. I'm not the original owner Chrysler Corporation was. Not in the way that you would think, The first "ownership" was Chrysler Motors sales fleet and was used as a marketing and public relations vehicle and has some unique data tag codes for Special Scheduling, Company car tracking, Marketing / Public Relations. It was built very close to NAJ's VNT on may 29 1989 (By the Way a big thank you to NAJ for deciphering the data tag on my car, THANK YOU again) i have a ball with it. What a great daily driver. It sure beats the boring Pontiac grand prix i used to run around in everyday.
Here is a link to a You tube vid. I was having some fun chasing my friends CSP prepared Miata. It was a closed area of the lot at Columbus Motor Speedway after the Autocross we just ran, There is also a video of my Autocross run just search "VNT Daytona" on you tube here is one of the vids.
