The Monogram Lumina kits were literally modeled after Hendricks cars, which were used for Days of Thunder. Many versions of the kit were released, plenty molded in white. I bought a Western Auto Lumina and an aftermarket set of Days of Thunder decals to do the Mello Yello car. The only thing to note though is they did eventually update them for the '94 cars having smoother front and rear bumpers. So just stick to the earlier releases and you'll have a great base for your replica.
I used Testors "Racing Red". And either Tamiya "Mica Blue" or "Racing Blue" can't remember exactly. Testors Racing Red is an almost perfect match but is a matte color so it will need a good clear coat. My DuPont Monte Carlo build.
