When the 1974 Cup season began, Roger Penske choose veteran open wheel driver Gary Bettenhausen to pilot the newly designed, if not somewhat awkward looking, AMC Matadors. Bettenhausen, while being very experienced in the open wheel cars, was a rookie on most of the tracks that the Nascar big shots were used to running week in and week out, and with mediocre performance the team was not making the progress that Penske was expecting. Beginning with the 1974 Firecracker “400” Bettenhausen was replaced by veteran stock car ace, Bobby Allison. Allison brought with him not only experience, but his longtime sponsor, Coca-Cola. Not long after he joined the team, the Matador’s number changed to Allison’s usual number of “12.” In 1975, Allison returned to the Penske Matador with the number reverting back to “16.” Bobby won both races at Darlington that year and the team ran very well. The Cherry Run decal sheet represents the colorful Penske cars as raced by Bobby and Gary and are printed in Italy by Cartograf and are designed to be used on the AMT AMC Matador kits.
