ALL SOLD OUT FROM AUTOWORLD!!
UPDATED WITH GRAPHICS THAT MATCH THE FUNNY CAR THAT WAS ACTUALLY RACED
at the 1973 NHRA SuperNationals and Lions last drag race only.
Auto World's LEGENDS OF THE QUARTER MILE SERIES FINISHED IN 1/18TH SCALE!!!
1973 "The SNAKE III" Plymouth Barracuda NHRA FUNNY CAR!!
Driven by "The Snake" Don Prudhomme.
Missing from the look of the car that was actually raced at the 1973 NHRA Supernationals, and Lions last drag race were these important graphics.
The Hot Wheels logo of the front fenders and the Coca-Cola logo's on the rear quarter panel and on the point of the hood.
As you can see from the replica we are offering those important missing graphics have been added matching the Snake 3 Plymouth Barracuda funny car that Don Prudhomme actually raced during those 2 events. As far as we know we are the only dealer offering this release. We have added pictures so you can see the difference of the fully decaled/painted car as it appeared at the Supernationals and Lions' Last Drag Race. The notorious black-primer Snake III Barracuda of Don Prudhomme -- a car that was unveiled at season’s end in 1972 and competed at the NHRA Supernationals and The Last Drag Race, where “Snake” was runner-up to Tom McEwen, and at Beeline Dragway in Arizona -- opened up a whole new can of snakes, as it were. As we have established, this John Buttera-built car went on to be painted yellow for the 1973 season, emblazoned with new sponsor Carefree Gum, and would win the U.S. Nationals. It was parked for the start of the 1974 season in favor of a laydown-style Vega (also from Buttera) but returned to the starting lineup in time to win the Gatornationals wearing the colors of “the Snake’s” new sponsor, the U.S. Army. It now resides in Don Garlits’ Museum of Drag Racing in Florida.
