The Newest NASCAR Classics Release – Benny Parsons’ 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

These 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo die-cast honor the career of the great Benny Parsons.
Both the 1:24 and 1:64 scale cars are the newest addition to Lionel’s NASCAR Classics series.

Watch out – the newest release in the NASCAR Classics line
is on its way!

Representing a brand that embodies the heritage of NASCAR, Lionel
NASCAR Collectables is excited to present the 1979 No.27 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
that Benny Parsons drove to his first win at Ontario Motor Speedway.

In NASCAR, speed is king and Parsons reigned supreme as the
first driver to ever qualify a stock care over 200 mph.

The 1973 Winston Cup Champion won his first Daytona 500 in
1975 and officially retired from competition in 1988. In 1994, he was inducted
into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and by 1998 named one of the 50
greatest drivers in NASCAR history.

So in honor of Parsons, this replica of his 1979 stock car
has a vibe like no other. The sleek white body has the infamous blue stripes
and the No.27 is placed proudly on both the side panels and the hood of the car.
Just like the original, the die-cast features Benny Parsons’ name above the
windows and Goodyear tires. It’s a
lightning fast car in honor of one of racing’s biggest personalities! 

Although times and body styles have changed, this throwback
car represents a part of NASCAR that established today’s values. 

Rebellious, tough
and legendary are all traits that describe Parsons and exactly justify why we
are excited that his is the newest release in our NASCAR Classics line!
