If this classic has you flashing back to the 70's you obviously spent allot of your time at the speedway! This car was built for promotional purposes by the owner of Micro Sleeve Corporation. This car has been designed to also race the in the Nevada “Silver State” highway run!

You will also see this car's feature MAGAZINE ARTICLE FOUND IN THE MOPAR COLLECTOR,S GUIDE, page 46.

In 2000 with the aide of archival pictures and technical details, Sputnik Motor Sports began building this vintage NASCAR clone like none you've ever seen! With detailed NASCAR references, they were able to put together a very accurate chassis, roll cage and suspension combination. The ten point cage is made utilizing 1-5/8"/.134 wall steel tubing that extends from the front of the frame rails all the way to the bright chrome front and rear bumpers. It wouldn't be a NASCAR clone if it had stock suspension, so it was all completely reworked to handle BIG horsepower. All this work included adding heavy 1.1" torsion bars, heavy duty front and rear sway bars, moving the rear springs, using all polyurethane bushings, and adding dual heavy duty racing shocks over each wheel. The rear end is a 742 casting 8-3/4 unit and in true stock car style utilizing 12" Chrysler drum brakes all around. It rides on a set of 15x10" Bart Racing wheels with 275x12x15 Goodyear Eagle tires that were interestingly enough once ran a qualifying lap at the Texas Motor Speedway! If you’re trying to recall the team that ran with Orange and White you won’t come up with anything. In fact, it was a conscious effort to avoid any colours that were used on circle track cars during this era. It makes the car much more of a tribute to the sport than to a specific driver.

Following the plan of the original racers the same body modifications were done to this car. The side marker lights were covered, door handles and mirrors removed, front wheel openings opened up, gas filler port fabricated, plus the headlights and taillights removed. Pop the hood and you will see a legit 426 wedge block with less than 20 hours of run time. To create a "NASCAR big block" the engine is topped with a set of 452 heads which were ported, polished, and treated to a three angle valve job. That nice lope is provided by a .501 lift hydraulic Competition cam. Underneath the custom NASCAR style cowl induction air box is a Holley intake with a 850 cfm Holley double pumper. The Mopar Performance transistor ignition system utilizes dual cockpit mounted modules which was standard practice for stock car racers. An old school custom aluminium shroud covers the Griffin four core radiator with dual cooling fans. Since the car was intended to be driven off the track as well, a Torque Flite transmission was used with a manual valve body. A stock clutch pedal is in place and the vintage Hurst manual shifter has custom lineage to power the transmission.

The interior is finished out in matching orange with custom aluminium panelling that finishes it very nicely. Black faced gauges line the dash with a polished tach on top. The racing steering column was custom fabricated and is topped with a removable stock car padded steering wheel. The original side quarter windows were fitted with Lexan replacements. Retaining straps are in place to reinforce the stock front and rear window glass. The single NHRA Kirken racing seat utilizes a five point Simpson racing safety harness and window safety net. This is a professionally built, thoroughly researched and planned, rotisserie restored race car tribute with receipts to prove it! This car would do well in any car show and would make an amazing addition to any private or museum collection!  Or if you are not into only showing it, put it back on the street or track where this car will really shine!
