The Original Marty Robbins 1969 #42 Daytona

The car presented here represents a unique piece of history form the pinnacle of the NASCAR Aero Wars.
This car was owned and driven by the late Country Music Superstar Marty Robbins. Marty is well known for songs like “El Paso”, “A White Sports Coat”, “Big Iron” and “Singing the Blues”. Few realize that this great country star was also an avid race car driver.

It is understood and accepted in the circle track world that cars like these were “re-skinned” over and over through the race season and often over a few years. This was also the case with this Marty Robbins Daytona.

The car started its life as James Hylton's 1968 Dodge Charger Tunnel back car. James ran this car in the Grand National NASCAR circuit during the 1968 season. For 1969 and to improve the performance of his car, James converted it to the more aerodynamic Dodge Charger 500. This was common as aerodynamics became the key to speed as Chrysler competed with Ford for the top spots. After 1969, due to lack of sponsorship, James decided to drive for Ford/Holman Moody. At that time, James had three Dodge Chargers. A 1967 Charger, a 1969 Charger Daytona and a 1969 Charger 500. The 1967 Charger and the 1969 Charger Daytona were sold. It was James' 1969 Charger 500 that was sold to Marty Robbins.

The unique history of this car goes on and on, with an impeccable pedigree and an abundance of documentation. The Colors, the drivers, the Hemi, the Wing, the restoration by Ray Evernham, all make this a piece worthy of any collection.

Full documentation available upon request.
