    If you’d like to grab a piece of NASCAR history, and you have big bucks, you can own the 1960 Plymouth Fury that Richard Petty drove during his first season in the sport. It ’s said to be his oldest surviving race car. During that rookie season, both of Petty’s cars featured a 383 cubic-inch V8 engine before the team swapped them out for a 413 V8 in 1961.The car features just a hint of a rudimentary roll cage and a minimalistic standard driver’s seat modified with a custom chunk of padding at the right shoulder to keep the driver tucked in position.

    The 383 cubic-inch V8 pushed out 325 horsepower rating and was indeed mostly ‘stock’ as were nearly all the NASCAR race cars of the day.

    The Buy-It-Now price is a considerable sum at $750,000.
