Found in a barn in Iowa: NASCAR Dodge Charger with Petty chassis
From time to time, well preserved former NASCAR glories surface here and there. This one has a 1974 Dodge Charger body on a late 60s or very early 70s Petty chassis. It might have well been a Superbird, but only that car can tell!
It looks like the restrictor plate is still under the Holley carburetor. However, this Holley does not look like a Grand National piece, but more something from a late model.
A peak of the interior, where you can see the typical Petty crossmember. It looks like the interior was red in its day.
Pop riveted inside door panels could be a hint to the late sixties origin of this MOPAR.
Three bar headrest: another hint to Petty Enterprise origin!
The front of the chassis looks newer. The original was probably replaced after a crash.
Drum brakes in the front indicate that it might have well been a super speedway car!
Now who had #28 in Grand National or Winston Cup or ARCA in 1977 ?
The typical squirrel wheel cooler for the rear end or transmission.

Do you have any more information on this car? Who found it, how did they find it?
