The 1992 Ford Thunderbird Jeff Gordon drove to his first-career NASCAR national-level win in 1992 will hit the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan. 29. There is no reserve set for the car’s sale.
The car is a No. 1 Ford that was owned by former NASCAR team owner Bill Davis and sponsored by Baby Ruth when it was raced by Gordon in the Busch Series that is now known as the Xfinity Series. Gordon drove for Davis in the precursor to the Xfinity Series for two seasons (1991 and 1992) before making the leap to the Winston (now-Sprint) Cup Series in the final Cup race of the season at Atlanta Motor Speedway in November 1992. Here is the Barrett-Jackson catalog description of the car (courtesy of a FOX Sports story by Tom Jensen):
