AUCTION: Ryan Newman’s No. 12 Alltel Dodge Charger NASCAR Cup Car!

Up For Auction, With No Reserve...

For those who are into collecting cool racing memorabilia, a recent live auction on BringATrailer.com caught our eye with this Dodge Charger-bodied NASCAR Cup car. Originally built by Penske Racing, the car started life as a Ford Taurus raced by Rusty Wallace at Watkins Glen in August 2000 and campaigned in the 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series by Ryan Newman before being refurbished and converted into a road course car by Gene Felton Industries in 2008.

The car was re-bodied with Dodge Charger-style bodywork in 2007 and refurbished by Gene Felton Industries in 2008. The car currently wears the No. 12 Alltel blue and white livery from the 2007 season.

The interior features a full roll cage with padding as well as a Joie of Seating fixed bucket seat trimmed in patterned blue fabric with Simpson harnesses. Additional features include a fire suppression system, a window net, and MSD ignition boxes mounted on top of the dash. A three-spoke steering wheel with a quick-release and a center pad sit ahead of AutoMeter Pro-Comp instrumentation that includes a 10k-rpm tachometer and auxiliary gauges.

Built by Penske Racing South, the car bares Chassis No. PRS 017, which is etched into the dash.

Under the hood is a Dodge R5P7 V8 reported built by Chip Ganassi Racing. It is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The only problem is the car is non-running at the moment according to the listing.
