M2 Machines is no stranger to collectibles at Carlisle, having partnered with the Chrysler Nationals since 2016 with a die-cast to commemorate 50 years of the iconic Dodge Charger. True to previous form, the 2019 option is a 1:64 scale die-cast and its ’69 design perfectly complements the overall Summer of ’69 theme at Carlisle in 2019. In addition to a focus on the rare M-Code 440, the sinister look comes from the X9 Black Velvet paint and the red interior really makes an impact. The look is capped perfectly with the infamous Recall Wheels from Kelsey Hayes and redline tires to break up all of that black.

Get them while they last, because just 750 will be produced. Not only did M2 design these gems, but they’ll come with the official logo of the 2019 Carlisle Chrysler Nationals 50th anniversary logo of the M-Code A-Body Darts and Barracudas. Remember, production is limited and once they are gone…they are gone! Pre-orders are available now via and MUST be picked up in-person during event weekend in July. These amazing collectibles are just $15, but there’s a limit of 3 per customer. Get yours today before they end up on eBay for much more.

The world’s largest all-MoPar event kicks off with a FREE cruise-in and kick-off party on July 11 at the Carlisle Expo Center. That party is the appetizer to the main course at the adjacent fairgrounds where 40,000+ guests and nearly 3,000 cars come to park and party! From the annual MoPar Survivor’s Tent to the featured vehicle displays, automotive flea market to the anniversaries and more, this event has it all. Speaking of features, 2019 features the aforementioned M-Code A-Body, plus 50 years of the Dodge Charger Daytona & 500, 50 (and ½) Years of the A12 Road Runner & Super Bee, plus a nod to the automotive Summer of ’69.

Getting involved is easy, too. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to show, sell or spectate, tickets and details are available at or by calling 717-243-7855.
