1977 Olds 442 Hawaiian Tropic Nascar The Legend This is the only publicly available fully built/restored 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Hawaiian Tropic Donnie Allison Nascar for sale. *Disclaimer: this is not THE famous car from the 1979 Daytona 500 as the original is in a museum. This car was found in a barn in South Carolina and was originally a Mike Greene ARCA / Winston Cup Super Speedway Car that was run in the late seventies and was bodied as a Buick…We determined that it would be better to restore/rebuild it as the famous Donnie Allison Hawaiian Tropic car from the 1979 Daytona 500…which was a 1977 Olds 442…and would be used at track days for doing ride alongs and being displayed at car shows. Rhine Enterprise of Denver North Carolina, the world leader in vintage Nascar restoration, was chosen to conduct the build/restoration. The skill and knowledge that Rhine Enterprise provides is second to none and they are the best at what they do for that reason. The car was disassembled and media blasted and new/additional structural members were added/replaced where needed as this car was meant to run on-track and not just be a trailer queen A donor 1977 Olds 442 was purchased in order to provide the correct body panels, bumpers, grill, hood and trunk lid Custom body panels were then made, the same way they were back then, to complete the body New period-correct 1965 Ford floors pans were installed…(these were what all Nascars used for decades regardless of brand of car) The body was then smoothed out and primed Period-correct “tractor paint” was used on the underside and interior Some unique features, like the repair patch at the base of the windshield, were left intact to serve as identifying features of the original Mike Greene car The car was then sprayed with GM Blaze Red by Man Made Legends of Mooresville, North Carolina This car is somewhat of a resto-mod as a more modern & reliable power plant, drivetrain and brakes were selected. A PME SB2 (putting out over 840hp) was gone-through and Dyno’d by Collins Engine Works The engine was mated to a Jerico 4 speed with 7.25” triple disc Nascar clutch AP Racing 6 piston short-track brakes up front Raybestos 4 piston brakes on a new 9” rearend with 4.30 gearing Donnie Allison was consulted in order to get the interior as accurate as possible. There is a passenger seat as this car was meant to be enjoyed and provide ride alongs at track day events Nothing was overlooked when it came to build details The decals are accurate and correct to pay tribute to the famous 1979 Daytona 500 car on Instagram and Big Red Too on Facebook for more pictures & videos Also available at: The car also makes an appearance in a recent PRI video featuring Rhine Enterprise here: Secure ground transportation anywhere in the continental U.S. can be arranged for an extra fee Asking price is USD $125,000 Owner is currently deployed. The car is being stored in Denver, NC Contact Bill Rhine at Rhine Enterprise at (704)489-8359 or [email protected] with interest
