There was a thread about this prior to the site going down.
A couple of vintage photos just surfaced that I think are important
to Nascar history.

The above link has a few good quality pics.

Thanks - great info!
I was at the NY Auto show that year. Also on display was AJ Foyt's Riverside winning Torino. (unless THAT was a duplicate as well...)

Did you notice the Torino in the background with the Motor Trend Car of the Year sticker on the side??
As we know, that designation was revealed in November of 1969.

It was always a good looking car driven by interesting drivers.

Did it win anything? Either in Charger or Daytona format?

The Showcar Daytona was never raced as a Daytona, so, no wins there.

Pretty sure the car was used as a short track car by Owens in 68 -69 before it got the street Daytona parts added on for Chrysler to show the car.

After Cotton and Pearson broke up, Cotton wasn't very lucky in the win column.
