The "King Daytona" was a Dodge Hemi Daytona given to Big Willie Robinson by the boss of Warren Fox Dodge during 1969 in exchange for simply putting the dealer's name on the quarter panel, and it appeared in the movie Two Lane Blacktop before it was acid dipped and destroyed due to Big Willie telling the person doing the acid dipping to wait a little bit longer. Despite this fact, it has been reported that John Tuttle scammed a person out of $200,000 dollars by selling him Big Willie's original "King Daytona."
I've seen elsewhere that it was also referred to as the African Elephant. Need to look into this. BK
