Thanks

I agree with those that felt this car needed to be split out from the Cotton Owens thread, which is why I carved these replies out and set them up as a new thread.

Randy, thanks for posting, and with some additional info/pictures, perhaps the guys on this forum can help.  Looks like a neat find!

71 or 72 Roadrunner. Right side fuel filler... set up for Riverside?

If this is a real R/P car, that would mean this the third one out there, if the other two 'restorations' are in fact real Petty cars. I've read that at least one was verified by PEI staff before the merge.

The Allison car has me wondering if that photo was taken at a shop in Gastonia...?

I do not mean to cast any doubts or question anyone's integrity, but as most know, there are more than a few cars out there that aren't what they claim to be.

These photos are a few years old, but are of the same car, as posted on Mopardealer.com     The car has no connection to Gastonia.

The last time the car ran was in the early 90's for land speed runs,  ie: Bonneville.   This is the lettering on the photos.

Great work. You are The Man when it comes to tracking these cars down.

So based on what Mopardealer said, this a Nichols chassis from 68-70, delivered to Soares in 72?

Or is it a later PE chassis?

Okay, my bad. It was a shot in the dark. It wouldn't be the first time I've opened my mouth without knowing what I was talking about.

And more than a few of those...ahem...questionable cars were built in Gastonia. Fortunately that particular assembly line is shot down.  And none too soon.

First picture in the thread does not have the silver 'fuel vent?' on the back of the left quarter panel.  Are we certain these are photos of the same car?
Nevermind!!!  looked again at the first photo and saw both quarters had been removed. slap

I had trouble posting pictures in my last post so I am going to try again here.  The history I have of the car is that it was purchased from Petty by Frank Burnett who sold it to a woman named Nafey (sp?) who ran it at the Bonneville Salt Flats.  She sold it to Jack McCoy and I purchased it after his death.  I talked with Patrick McKinney (who has restored a Petty car) and he said that he thought that the floor boards and some other details were possibly from as early as 1968 (which means the car could have possibly been built then).  Any help in identifying which races this car might have run in and in identifying when it was built (a possible Petty Superbird?) would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you all for your help and I look forward to hearing from you.

Those are definately factory frame rails on the front.  Maybe Doug or someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think every Chrysler Nascar built '71 and up did not use the factory rails up front.  This would pre-date it being a '71 car.
