 Vehicle Description
Built by a storied fabricator, wheeled by a legendary driver and restored by a panoptic racer, this sinister Chevy Nova is a wistful throwback to simpler days and better times. And, for those who enjoy a rare blend of cultural and automotive history, its a one-of-a-kind original. Dale Earnhardt was the last of a vanishing breed of NASCAR drivers who would stop at nothing to win a race. His sheer tenacity and innate skill were unique talents that resulted in a legacy as one of the most successful motorsports icons of all time. Of course, we all know a great driver never realizes his full potential unless he partners with an excellent team. Enter metal perfectionist Robert Gee who, with the eventual help of Hendrick Motorsports, would become one of NASCARs most celebrated fabricators. Throughout the 80s, Dale Earnhardt, Robert Gee and Robert Gee Jr., founding members of Dale Earnhardt Incorporated, would seize multiple victories in NASCARs Sportsman division using the chassis you see here. Beginning life as a Pontiac Ventura, this rowdy racer made its series debut in Wrangler war paint and the classic "8" thats an Earnhardt tradition. In 1984, after realizing the aerodynamic superiority of Chevrolet bodies, Dale and Robert Gee Jr. transformed the car into a Chevy Nova. And, at the 1986 Goodys 300, it became the first black and silver, Goodwrench-branded race winner. After its tenure at DEI, the Nova found itself in a number of bare-knuckle brawls in Late Model and Super Stock events. Circa 1998, noted restorer Gene Felton located the car and commenced a thorough, ground up restoration. And recently, this storied winner, a 3-time Goodwood Festival of Speed participant, has appeared and competed in a wide variety of vintage and historic race events. RK Motors Charlotte is honored to be the custodian of this vital piece of racing history. What better way to honor the legacy of the The Intimidator than driving around in a sinister stock car with his name on it?
