I had the red version (c.early 80's) and had a helluva time building it back then !
It's nice to see the good wheels instead of those grotesque 80's "Champ 500" wheels in the red version .
What I liked about this kit was its inclusion of casting dates and part numbers on the block (!!) ; and now it's cool that a clear valve cover was added so that the rocker assembly can be seen (great job , Round2 !)
I'd really like to see this backdated to a stock '71-'74 Charger , but I doubt that'll ever happen ...
I'm going to buy one of these and just have fun with it . I can see it in pearl light green or pearl white , either colour with those gold stripes !

I have the black street charger, the red super charger the dukes charger and the buddy baker charger. not sure but from what i have seen the Richard petty charger was first then the buddy baker charger. Looking at the floor pan from the buddy baker car and the black street charger they are 99% the same other than in the street charger they tooled the tunnel as to look like carpet and the fire wall does not have the place for the battery. So other than adding the blower and interior parts and wide rear wheels and removing all the NASCAR parts its the same kit. So in thought the run would be petty/baker NASCAR then the street charger as they are cast the same with very little change. Then the dukes charger and last the super charger. Like i said i have all 4 kits and looking at them that's the changes i'v seen.

The kit in the photos is not the reissued kit. Round 2 is casting them in white not in the colors they first started off in.
In turn when the petty kit come out is it going to be white or clear? The clear body parts is what made the petty kit.
petty=clear body baker=red body street charger=black dukes=orange and the last run of the street charger was red.
The reissue of the dukes and street charger are white.

I believe the Second issue Red Buddy Baker car was a Petty Enterprises car.
He did run for them for a couple years.
The Clear Body Petty Charger was the First issue.
I have the original my dad built back then and had a second unbuilt I sold 25+ years ago.
I just MIGHT get one of the Petty re-issues when they come out.
I would like to see if I can get Transparent paints in the correct shades to "Paint?Tint"
the body but still see the chassis/works underneath

Clear body's always present many build possibilitys. Leave it all clear, go for a half and half, maybe a museum style where just certain areas are left clear, just clear, clear with decals, lots of ways.
