Lionel NASCAR Classics Dale Earnhardt Sr. #96 Cardinal Tractor 1978 Ford Torino 1:24 Color Chrome by Lionel Racing has never been made in die-cast form until now. On May 28 1978 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the No. 96 Cardinal Tractor Ford Torino became the first Ford Dale Earnhardt raced in the premier series of NASCAR. It’s also the car he raced to his first top 10 finish as Daytona’s Firecracker 400. This die-cast is a collector item that Earnhardt fans won’t want to miss.
Color chrome die-cast have a special finish with a very high gloss. Color Chrome is a labor-intensive process of polishing the entire body of the car by hand. Then the die-cast is chrome-plated with a multi-step electro-plating process, painted with clear lacquer inspired by the color tint of the original car, and sponsor decals are applied over the Color Chrome Finish.
The result is a superior quality product and dazzling finish.
This 1:24 scale hood & trunk open die-cast features a die-cast body, die-cast chassis, numbered, skybox packaging, window net and rubber tires.
