Details

Originally Dale's Wrangler-sponsored Pontiac Ventura built by Robert Gee "The Michalangelo of Bodies" with major wins. Converted to Chevy Nova for better aerodynamics by Dale and brother-in-law Robert Gee, Jr. It won at Daytona, Richmond, Darlington, Rockingham & others in the late '80s running his father's famous #8 and sponsored by GM Goodwrench.

I have owned this car and collected a huge amount of scrapbooks, pictures, news articles, tape, and video recordings by his crew members. It was invited to and ran at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed in England in 2005, 2006, and 2009. It was also ran in Victory Lane Magazine's Darlington Historic Stock Car event twice. A frame-up restoration was applied in 2011-12 for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion event in August of 2012. This car is, absolutely, a one-of-a-kind as original as when raced in NASCAR by the greatest driver in NASCAR history.
