Memory ain't what it once was but I'm vaguely recalling reading somewhere (maybe the "West Coast Nascar" Pinterest site that I frequent) that that particular Dodge was owned by Doc Faustina who lived in Las Vegas, that he bought it from a regular Nascar circuit team, and had Wendell Scott drive it once or twice on the main Nascar circuit. If somebody can identify the track & year in the photo, it should be relatively easy to check old Nascar stats and see if I'm remembering correctly.
According to DC-93 this was originally a Petty Superbird............converted to a Dodge................then restored back as a Superbird.
Ehhhh, call me crazy but I don't THINK that body style was ever a Superbird. I'm just saying.
No, but it’s common for the entire body “skin” to be replaced over the same chassis. Lots of chassis wore different bodies in their racing careers.
This particular car and paint scheme raced at Charlotte on October 7, 1973.
Wendell started 38th and finished 12th.
I guess my tired ol' memory still can sometimes fire on all 8 after all..........results show the car was indeed owned by Doc Faustina from Las Vegas. I don't know how/if the Petty Superbird story relates to this car.
