77 Century Formal Roofline

Recommended Posts

Folks ran the 77 Century in NASCAR in two body forms: the fastback (same roof as the Laguna and 77 Cutlass) and the "formal" V window form (Century, Cutlass, Monte Carlo). GM A bodies of the Collonade era used a lot of parts across models for cost savings. Floor pans, firewalls, roofs and sometimes door skins (77 Century and 77 Cutlass). Probably the most recognizable formal roofline car was the one Dale Earnhardt ran. I took my first casting from my Century mold and grafted a Revell Monte Carlo roof onto it. This will be the Earnhardt Number 2 formal roof car. Gerald likes this one.

Went to the web site. Sold out. Hopefully the body is as popular as the decals! Tim or Gerald, do you have any more pictures of the livery on the car? Thanks!

I can't find anything more than what you have found.

Evidently SMH has not updated their web site in awhile. They refunded my money. Guess I stick with the ones I have.
