eBay Find of the Day: #43 Challenger auction has begun

We've seen the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 in Orange, Black and Silver now, but the most sought after color for the car's first model year will undoubtedly be Blue, or rather B5 Blue if you want to get technical. That's the color that adorns Challenger #43, a rolling tribute to Richard Petty that is currently up for auction on eBay Motors until Friday, February 22nd. The Smurfy hue is meant to replicate the Petty Blue, or Corporate Blue, that covered The King's race cars during his stock car racing career.

Challenger #1 already sold for $400,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ last month, while Challenger #2 was sold off in a closed auction for dealers only. We're betting that this one-of-a-kind Challenger beats them both on the block, because not only do you get the car, but Dodge is throwing in two VIP passes to the May 2008 Dodge Challenger 500 NASCAR race at Darlington Raceway, travel and lodging for the event, and a meet-and-greet with Kyle Petty. The auction began with a starting bid of $25,000 and has grown to $52,100 in just a couple of days.

All the proceeds are going to the Victory Junction Gang, which is a charity founded by Kyle Petty in honor of his son, Adam, that works to improve the lives of children with chronic illnesses. Thanks for the tip, everyone!
