1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona NASCAR - $1.4m

Previously piloted by NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Bobby Allison. On August 24, 1969, Allison ran the no. 22 car for four laps in excess of 200 MPH. Restored in correct Red and Gold Coca-Cola no. 22 livery after being discovered in a barn. Bobby Allison personally inspected this car and verified its authenticity in a handwritten letter dated November 10, 1999. Dash autographed by Allison in two locations. First Place Award at the 2005 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. 426/650 HP Hemi engine built and dyno tested by Dick Landy.
Back on the block after bringing $1.4m in January. This chunk of automotive history is up for grabs again at Mecum.
