According to Owner and Driver of this car Chuck “Rick” Parsons this car is Mario Andretti’s rookie car. The future for this car is that Rick has sold the car and partnered with Ray Evernham, from the TV Show AmeriCarna who on an episode showed he found the original frame. They plan to put Rays frame together with this engine and body to make the most original Andretti Rookie car available.
