I have these two decal sheets, one is Dynamic and the other is Cox. I'm not sure what cars these came with. Is the Dynamic sheet 1/32 scale? Can someone please verify?

Joe,

 

I'm not a super expert but the Dynamic sheet is for the wide low roof Talladega handling body in 1/24. IIRC I've seen two with similar/ same decals on them, but again the last one I saw like that was in the  early '90s.

 

I've been looking for one of those bodies lately, I like to make a mold and pull a few for myself and the few people out here that would like one to run I missed one awhile ago on eBay.

Thanks, Ken

 

I was not sure on that Dynamic sheet as it looks too big for 1/32 and too small for 1/24.

 

Some of those Dynamic Handling bodies are super hard to find.

#43 is for a famous blue stock car - Richard Petty.

 

The second is just a generic sheet for decorating sports cars.  The round diameter determines scale.  One inch is commonly 1/24 and 3/4" for 1/32 scale.

Number 43. I have to admit, I don't know much about NASCAR but I can't remember The King ever running a Ford anything. My recollection was he was all Mopar, all the time.

Mark, he did defect for one year  :dash2:

Also look up the tragic story of his short foray in drag racing.

 

Still one of my favorite racers of all time. 

 

Remember watching on "regular" TV with my Mom way back when. It was so exciting and you could tell a Plymouth from a Ford or Chevy.

 

I miss her and free TV.

Since the second sheet has COX on it, it may be from one of their kits....Cheetah?

Yes, the Cox decals are from Cheetah but the lower strip of decals have been cut off.
