Description
 
HERE IS A MUST HAVE CAR FOR THE SERIOUS COLLECTOR. THIS IS A COLLECTORS RARE FIND.THIS IS A ORIGINAL JC PENNY FACTORY A/FX SUPER STOCK RACE CAR WITH FACTORY FIBERGLASS BUMPERS,HOOD,FENDERS,DOORS, DECK LID AND DASH OPTIONS INCLUDING FACTORY ALUMINUM DOOR HINGES.. SHOWCASED FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS EXCLUSIVELY IN THE WORLD SPEED EXHIBIT AT WAYNE LENSING'S HISTORIC AUTO ATTRACTIONS MUSEUM IN ROSCOE, IL. THIS 1965 DODGE CORONET A/FX SUPER STOCK WAS ORIGINALLY CAMPAIGNED IN 1965 AS THE"" PENNY PINCHER"" WITH KEITH BLACK AS THE ENGINE BUILDER. SEVERAL YEARS AFTER BEING RETIRED,THIS VEHICAL APPEARED AS A DICK LANDY CAR. AFTER THE NEW OWNER REALIZED THAT THE DOCUMENTATION WAS FALSE AND THE CAR WAS ACTUALLY NOT A LANDY CAR, HE HAD THE CAR RESERCHED BY JIM KRAMER (KRAMER AUTOMOTIVE SPEACIALTIES, HERMAN PA) IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE CAR WAS ORIGINALLY PURCHASED BY JC PENNY AND RACED IN A/FX TO PROMOTE THE STORE'S LINE OF A.FX AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS. AS IT TURNED OUT, THIS CAR IS RARER THAN ANYONE EVER EXPECTED. IT MAY BE THE ONLY ONE OF ITS TYPE IN EXISTANCE. IN 1965, THE FACTORIES WERENT ALLOWED TO USE ALUMINUM BODY PARTS ON THE CARS ANYMORE, SO THEY OFFERED THE "65" LIGHTWEIGHTS WITH ACID-DIPPED BODY PANELS. CHRYSLER INTERPRETED THE RULES IN THEIR OWN WAY AND THE RULES SPECIFIED NO ALUMINUM. HOWEVER,NHRA DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT USING FIBERGLASS PANELS ON THEIR ALTERED-WHEELBASE CARS, BUT IN ORDER TO DO THAT, THEY HAD TO OFFER FIBERGLASS ON THE REGULAR (UNALTERED) CARS AS AN OPTION. AS IT TURNS OUT THE FIBERGLASS WAS COMPLETED JUST BEFORE THE NHRA RULED THAT FIBERGLASS AND ALTERED -WHEELBASE CARS WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED. THE FIBERGLASS PROGRAM WAS SUMMARILY SCRAPPED AFTER THE RULING BUT FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, FIBERGLASS REMAINED AN OPTION ON THE STANDARD,UN-ALTERED HEMI RACE CARS, AND ONLY ONE CAR WAS ORDERED WITH THIS OPTION, THE JC PENNY RACE CAR. ITS REALLY A TRICK CAR WITH ALUMINUM DOOR HINGES,FIBERGLASS FENDERS,DOORS,HOOD,DECKLID,BUMPERS AND EVEN THE DASH. IT ALSO HAS PLEXIGLAS WINDOWS. ELECTING NOT TO RETURN THE CAR TO ITS FORMER APPEARENCE, HE BROUGHT MCDONALDS ON BOARD FOR THE FIRST EVER VENTURE INTO MOTOR SPORTS ADVERTISING. THATS RIGHT THE VERY FIRST RACE CAR EVER TO BE GRACED WITH THE GOLDEN ARCHES. COCA-COLA ALSO JOINED IN TO CREATE THE MCDONALDS COCA-COLA NOSTOLGIC RACE TEAM AS IT STILL APPEARS TODAY. AS WITH MANY ORIGINAL RACE CARS, THE CAR CURRENTLY HAS A NOM ALUMINUM HEAD,HEMI, THE ORIGINAL MAGNESIUM CROSS RAM,727 TORQUEFLIGHT AND DANA REAR END. WELL THATS THE HISTORY BEHIND THE CAR AND I HAVE THE DOCUMATION ON IT. IT TRULY IS SOMETHING FOR THE COLLECTOR. YOU CAN SEARCH YOUR WHOLE LIFE TO FIND SOMETHING THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS AND THIS COULD BE YOUR ONLY SHOT. VEH. IS FORSALE LOCALLY SO I DO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END AUCTION EARLY.. PLEASE, SERIOUS PEOPLE CALL ME TO TALK ABOUT THE CAR.
