Supercars fans can have their say on how Chaz Mostert's #55 Ford Falcon will look at the Sandown 500 thanks to Supercheap Auto.

The retailer will again delve into its history for the September event, which for the second straight year will be presented as Supercars' 'retro round'.

Fans can vote on their preferred livery through Supercheap Auto's Facebook page by answering what their favourite look is and why in 25 words or less.

The three livery options are based on entries from Supercheap Auto's history in Supercars, which stretches back 20 years.

While Mostert and co-driver Steve Owen's 2016 retro look was based on Steve Ellery's Falcon from 2002, two of the contenders came from across the blue-red divide.

John Briggs' scheme from Sundown 1999 is one option, while Greg Murphy's first Supercheap Auto car from 2005 and Russell Ingall's 2010 livery are the others.
