It's true! A retired Richard Petty Charger went to Lemans around 1976 with Hersshel McGriff. The car still races at Lemans, in nostalgia events. It has undergone several transformations thru the years, with newer bodies, different grilles, and such. Here is my version of that car:
I used a Polar Lights Petty Charger for the body, and a Polar Lights Buddy Baker Charger for the Hemi and some of the suspension parts. The decals are after market affairs.
Comments and questions welcome! Thanks for looking!

nice. not much into nascar, but can appreciate a nice build. I have some sort of nascar slated to be built, just when, who knows. do you shoot thru an air gun or rattle cans. your paint is really nice.
This was done with rattle cans. I have an old airbrush, but haven't had enuff practice with it to start spraying car bodies.
Thanks for the comments! I don't build NASCAR very much, either. This one came about as a result of a group build of LeMans racers. I didn't have any Ferraris, or Porches, or GT40s, but I did have the Charger!! LOL
Super Cool! I don't care much for racing in circles, especially when the cars don't even come close to resembling a stock car, or a race car for that matter. Not to mention the sanctioning body more or less dictating who gets to win, based on profit for the corporation. However I do like road racing a lot, not as much as the all-out performance of straight line racing, but I really respect the Le Mans type of racing.
That being said I really like what you've built and what it represents.
