Throwback Thursday-Buddy Arrington-1985

By David G. Firestone

This is a Buddy Arrington example from 1985

This scheme was only used for the 1985 Pepsi Firecracker 400 on July 4, and interestingly, despite obviously being a Ford, is sponsored by Jim Peacock Dodge. The patriotic red, white, and blue scheme works very well. The vintage blue and white numbers stand out on the red background, and the vintage lettering looks really good. The design is great too, with the red on the side running under the windows, and the blue over the windows.

The vintage wheels look good in the blue paint, the white letter tires work well on them, and I’m amazed at how high off the ground the car is. This is a really good look.
