What lives in a barn, hasn't moved for decades and is red and white with rust all over?

A 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, and it's worth $180,000. A Greenwood, Alabama, man found the classic muscle car wasting away in his barn roughly 60 miles south of Montgomery. He sold it to a restoration specialist and now the car is set to hit the auction block where it's expected to fetch a top bid between $150,000 and $180,000.

Dodge made just 503 Charger Daytonas that year, most of which were meant to meet NASCAR racing standards. The car, which has a flames painted on the front fenders, has a 440 Magnum V-8 engine, nearly all of its original parts and just 20,553 miles on the odometer.

More photos of the barn find from Mecum auctions.
