This 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass was built by the legendary car builder Banjo Matthews for car owner Junior Johnson. Driven by three-time NASCAR champion Cale Yarborough and sponsored by First National City Travelers Checks, this car was instrumental in Yarborough winning the championship in 1978.
Legendary crew chief Travis Carter, who worked for Junior Johnson in 1978, oversaw the restoration and authenticated and certified the car in 2000. In 2004, Yarborough drove this car under the lights at Darlington Raceway to celebrate the lighting of “The Lady in Black.”
A very authentic and rare piece of racing history. Also included is a Bell Racing helmet autographed by Cale Yarborough.
