1967 was the year he won 27 races. That's why I wanted to do this build.

That was before I was born.. 27.. sounds like he won them all.

Great job Mark.  That blue is really vibrant.

What blue did you use Mark?

Back in those days they ran 50-60 times a year, that's how RP was able to rack up 200 wins.  IMO David Pearson's 105 wins are much more impressive because he ran a limited schedule most of his career.

Nice one Tom.. I didn't even know RP drove some of these cars because it is before I remember.

I have 7 Petty builds from 1964 to 1993.  Hear are a few of my favorites.  The '68 is special because it was given to me as a basket case by a fellow modeler who has since passed away.  The 68 is a '69 Johan.  The other two are MPC.

I am currently working on the '65 Barracuda drag car.

I'm building the altered wheelbase, fuel injected version of the Barracuda.  I'm using an original AMT kit, and cut up a resin body for parts and pieces.  The Rat Packer AWB chassis fits the wheelbase nicely, but the front track was too narrow.  I had to widen the frame and front axle.  You can see the front axle in the background.  It's still very rough.
