"The LEGEND Lives On "
Limited-Edition Print of 500 (13x19)
signed and numbered by the Artist.
Back in 08 I painted "Landy's Legend" 65 Dodge as a Christmas present to myself, because it was one of the first cars I ever illustrated over 20 years ago. So here we are at Christmas time 2014 so I thought I'd do a companion piece to fir this legendary car.
I suppose you could write a book on the influence this car had on Drag Racing, and muscle cars in general. This 65 Dodge, perhaps more than any other car, helped create Drag Racing's favorite class, the Funny Car.
In 1966 Jim Wetton purchased the Dodge from Dick Landy to advertise his 'Studio Dodge" Dealership in North Hollywood California.
The car was a fixture at So Cal tracks in 66, and with it's new brilliant Red paint job, most people would agree Jim did a great job giving the car a new identity for it's second incarnation...
