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! Where once a 426 HEMI bellowed, now a small block resides. [...]

Often sponsored by Kirby Hairstudio, although it does not look as if Rapid Roy was a frequent customer there, he later switched to a Camaro, which looked more than a cheapo batmobile wannabee and lacked the class of the Olds!   [...]
