Rock Star Stock Car Looking for a New Driver! VIEW POST
In the distant past, owning a NASCAR-spec stock car was as simple as going to your local dealer and checking off the right boxes for a new-car special order. Whether you then went racing for the checkered flag or just the next stoplight was all up to you.

That’s what makes this ’63 Ford 300 R-code so special. Built on Ford’s full-size fleet-car model (a stripped-down Galaxie), the 427ci, dual Holley 4-barrel engine guarantees a grin every time you smash the go pedal. Only 50 of these R-code 300s were built, making this one rare blast from the past, complete with bench seat, black vinyl floor covering, poverty hubcaps and a four-speed on the floor.

The days are long gone when you could buy a true NASCAR race car directly from your new-car dealer, but don't let that deter you. Offered for sale by Ryno seller Smoky69, the only thing that stands between you and this Rangoon Red factory racer is a checkbook that has old-school written all over it.
