Talladega to Auction

Calculating the price of a rare 1969 Ford Talladega is a real challenge. In my opinion, there are two factors that play a big part in the ultimate price paid for one of these great cars. The first is condition. Obviously the better the condition the higher the price. The second part is how bad the buyer wants the car and how bad the seller wants to sell the car. If the seller needs a quick sale and the buyer isn’t real serious the price will be low; likewise if the seller doesn’t want to sell and the buyer really wants the car, the price goes up. That all seems pretty straight forward. However, when the Talladega is being sold at auction there must be two willing buyers in the room at the same time for the price to hit its maximum level.

On August August 31, 2012 a White Talladega (VIN: 9A46Q102001), fully restored with date code engine (assume that means not numbers matching) will be going to be auctioned at the . Condition estimated at 1 but could be any where between a 1 and a 2. Estimated auction price by World Wide Auctions at $55,000 to $65,000. What do you think this car should bring?

Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
