The Mustang is being honored with a U. S. Post Office stamp for the second time. Richard Petty, his son Kyle, and Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe dedicated a new series of America on the Move: Muscle Cars Forever stamps, including a ’67 Shelby GT500, at Daytona International Speedway during festivities for the Daytona 500
“The Muscle Cars stamps celebrate an exciting era in American automotive history,” said Richard Petty. “These examples of raw power bring back fond memories for me and my family, a testament to how aerodynamics transformed racing. I’ve been around racing and muscle cars all my life. These stamps bring back the memories of our racing heritage in the ‘60s and ‘70s. This is a great way to share our stories, old and new, about the Petty history in racing.”
In addition to the Shelby GT500, the Muscle Cars Forever stamps include the 1966 Pontiac GTO, 1969 Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevelle SS, and 1970 Hemi Cuda.
The Muscle Cars stamps are being issued as Forever stamps in self-adhesive sheets of 20 (four of each design). They can be purchased at local Post Offices, at usps.com/stamps, or by calling 800-STAMP-24.
