To pay tribute to Richard Petty’s accomplishments, and celebrate the long line of Mopars that helped carry him to greatness, Smithfield Foods commissioned Petty’s Garage to build a retro-themed, Hemi-powered Pro Touring Superbird from a donor project that had been dissassembled and forgotten for 15 years. There was so much rust, and so much work, there's no mystery why they gave up on blowing a fortune to make it right.

The guy who won, Verl McCown, only entered once. The nationwide sweepstakes was advertised in Hot Rod and other magazines
He received it in March 2018 and lives in Portland, so the 1st car show he brought it to was the Portland Roadster Show. It won Best In Class.
