Buy a Custom 1969 Chevelle Designed by Tony Stewart
NASCAR fans frequently get the chance to buy a Chevy from one of their favorite drivers, whether it be a raffle for Jeff Gordon’s 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray or an eBay auction for Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 1955 Bel Air. But how often does one have the opportunity to own a vehicle designed by their favorite racecar driver?
If you’re a Tony Stewart fan (with a lot of money), you might want to head to Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach this weekend to bid on a unique “Smoke” Edition 396 1969 Chevy Chevelle that was designed in part by Stewart.
Stewart (who is nicknamed “Smoke”) inspired the custom Chevelle’s flame decals, white racing stripes, and low stance. The one-of-a-kind car also features wheels donated by Chip Foose and a 396 V8 engine.
If you’ve got a few tens of thousands of dollars to spend on this thing, you may want to spend it on this Chevelle, since the proceeds are going to a good cause: the Darrell Gwynn Foundation and their wheelchair donation program.
“This is such an exciting project for me,” Darrell Gwynn, founder of the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, said of the Smoke Edition Chevelle. “We couldn’t have done it would Patrick Hurst of American Classic Rides. Tony Stewart is such an avid automobile enthusiast, so to be able to work with him to design a one-of-a-kind ‘Smoke’ Edition was awesome. I know this is a car that he’d love to drive if he had the chance! The winning bidder is going to get a treasure at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach, while supporting a great cause.”
