Description
 
In 1972 Richard Petty won his 4th Winston Cup Championship, thanks to his 28 top-10 finishes, including 25 top-5 finishes and 8 victories. 1972 was a year of change in other ways, as it was the last year Richard would campaign a Petty Plymouth, as toward the end of the year Petty drove a newly built 1972 Dodge Charger in a few races (winning one of them), as Petty believed the car to have a slight aero advantage over the Plymouth body style. On February 18, 1973, in a driverís duel, Petty, in a newly built 1973 Dodge Charger (a body style he would use exclusively until the end of 1977) outlasted Baker (now with the K&K Insurance Dodge race team) to win his fourth Daytona 500 after Baker's engine gave out with six laps left. One year later, Petty won the Daytona "450" (shortened 20 laps {50 mi/80 km} due to the energy crisis) for the fifth time en route to his fifth Winston Cup Championship.

Now MPC in a licensing arrangement with Petty Racing recreates one of the holy grails of plastic model car kits, the 1/16 Scale Petty Charger. The original issues were commanding upwards of $300 on the collector market. Now, we all get a chance to enjoy and build this recreation of a vintage gem. The body is molded fittingly in opaque Petty blue.
