No offense meant whatsoever, Im genuinely curious, but who are you that you can just ring up Bobby Allison and Richard Petty on the horn?
When you own a chuck of NASCAR history like this big red truck... it opens doors. I called Bobby in 2004 when I bought the truck and we talked on the phone for about 10 minutes. I asked him if he had pics of the hauler and he laughed at me saying: "No one took pics of the trucks... it was always about the cars, always about the cars". I saw him again in Charlotte at a race promo and we talked again... his biz card is pinned to the office wall. He said don't give this number out LOL.
I do not have Petty's phone number but life is all about doing things and the flip side would be sitting on a couch doing nothing. Petty's aunt lived 4 houses down the road from me as a child and Petty would stop in when ever he was near the area ( she probably made good cookies )... so this big light blue truck parked in her drive way was a clue he was there. Fairly sure I could have Petty's phone number in 24 hours if I needed it. But my research doesn't point to Petty, at least not at this time.
I once carried Stylvester Stalones golf bag when I parked cars at a fancy hotel in South Carolina... and drove ZZTop around for a day in the hotels Lincoln Town car when they were in town. Been a normal life other than that

UPDATE: Found a new prior owner in McClure Ford out of Troy Pa. While being owned by Al McClure... modified racing champion Geoff Bodine used the hauler briefly at the Shangri-La racetrack. The McClure's bought the hauler out of Richmond Va in 1973 but they can't recall who they bought it from.
Waiting on a paper VIN request to be returned from the Richmond MVA. Fingers crossed it will have some info as the trail has gone cold.
