GMP 1:12 Vel’s Parnelli Jones Special Ford Dirt Champ race car Andretti

$ 299.00

Vel Miletich and Parnelli Jones partnered to create what would become a 'Superteam'. Al Unser in the #1 Four -Cam Ford and sister car #2 of Mario Andretti would dominate the 1973 Champ Car season. The cars commonly finished #1 and #2 to match the car numbers. In 1974 Mario dominated the season winning the 100 mile race in Sedalia, the 100 miler in Springfield, and the 100 miler in DuQuoin pushing him to the top of the points race to win the Championship! This larger scale is great and is a very limited production of 500. The car is almost 14 inches long with great details.

The team was formed in 1969 by former USAC racer Parnelli Jones and his business partner Velko “Vel” Miletich. Parnelli was initially solely concerned with USAC racing, where success came quickly; their driver Al Unser won the Indianapolis 500 race in 1970, driving a VPJ Colt, after leading 190 of the 200 racing laps. Unser went on to win the USAC championship. Unser repeated the Indy 500 win in 1971 with a nearly identical Colt, ending the season in fourth place in the USAC drivers points while teammate Joe Leonard won the championship.
