He then freely shares these videos on his Car Guy Luke YouTube channel. Every once in a while, he comes across something really exciting. This time, Marquardt may have outdone himself.
The video above will blow your mind if you are a Mopar lover. Even if you are not, the find that Marquardt stumbled upon will amaze even the most die-hard Chevy or Ford fan. While Marquardt was working on the 1956/57 Napco trucks that he found a week before he shot this video, he discovered this back lot that had five late 60s Mopar cars in various states of disrepair.
He had the presence of mind to gather some valuable information from these rare finds after creating the video above. Here are the VINs of the Mopar cars in the video, and how they decoded. The first is WS23L9G242200, a 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T 440 four-speed (per data plate). It’s one of 1,541 made. The second car’s VIN is XS29J9D234780, a 1969 Hemi Charger (per VIN), and one of less than 1,000.
The third car VIN is XS29J8B254091. It came up as 1968 Hemi Charger, four-speed floor-shift car, and is one of only 467 built (per VIN and data plate). Number four car carries VIN XX29L9B220074, which translated to a 1969 440ci Charger 500 Fast Top (one of just 392 examples made. The fifth and last of these resto-ready Mopars found had VIN XP29F8XXXXXXX, a green 1968 318 Charger (per data plate).
