Back in 1971, Dale Earnhardt was just getting started. He was years away from being a Nascar® Champion, and it would be many wins before he’d become known as the Intimidator. But with the prodding of Earnhardt’s father Ralph, a North Carolina car owner named James Miller saw the potential in young Earnhardt and turned his 1956 Ford Victoria over to the unproven driver. It was only the second car Earnhardt ever raced. “He was a wild kid back then,” said Miller. “He didn’t win in my car, but he never did get it tore up where we couldn’t fix it.” Now Lionel Nascar Collectables is proud to introduce – for the very first time – the die-cast of the No. 8 1956 Ford Victoria which Earnhardt drove on the dirt tracks of the Carolinas in the Nascar racing series. It’s a die-cast that tells the story, that begins the legend, and it has never been available to collectors until now.
