This is the second of three significant sunroof cars from the Wellborn Collection that sold this January at the Mecum Kissimmee auction in Florida. Tim likes his cars loaded – and this one does not disappoint! As the article title states, this is the highest optioned and most expensive Charger R/T known to exist. Tim acquired this beauty around 2005, and it has been a staple at the Wellborn Museum ever since. Notable previous owners include Steven Segal and NFL great Kevin Greene. This car is outfitted with some pretty rare and expensive options including: The HEMI, Dana 60 rear axle, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, AM/FM with 8-Track, 6-way Driver’s Seat, and Color-keyed Bumpers and Dual Racing Mirrors. Total sticker came to just north of $6,300! It hammered away at Mecum for $290,000. Stat Line: 426 Hemi, Auto, Super Trak Pack Dana 60, EV2 Hemi Orange, with White interior and top, and Black stripe.
