One more Talladega for BJ Auction in Scottsdale 2015


I just found a third Talladega going to auction in Scottsdale. This one is Lot 999 which will be selling on Friday. It is stated to be a full restoration on an original CA car to concours quality. It does appear to be a #1 condition car. This could well be the best example of a Talladega going to ever go to auction at BJ. However, I have never seen this car in person and the photos could hide a lot of mistakes. This car is in our Registry.

It is a Wimbledon White Talladega which will make it a buyers choice¬†of Talladegas with each colors going on the block. Here is one more chance for you to pick what you think this car will sell for. Now you have a chance to watch the other two sell on Wednesday and then tell us what you think this one will do on Friday? Will the others drag this car’s price down or wet the appetite of buyers and drive it up? Of the three which one would you prefer to own based on the BJ descriptions? talladegawhite


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.

  1. As cool as it is to have so many T’s cross the block at one auction, actually think it may hurt all of their numbers. Try to find 3 bidders willing to spend realistic money on a Talladega in one place much less across the country? The white one from the photo certainly looks the best and most correct. I would goes it to be the leader, followed by the blue modified car (at a loss from last time around) and finally the maroon. I agree with Carl that the Daytona goes for the most and the low mileage Superbird and Vitamin C Superbird behind. I just realized I should be watching the auction!

  2. Richard,

    I think that Mark has the order just about right on sales prices; however, I would have to question your assessment of this being a #1 car. For some reason, I thought that the rockers on this car should be painted flat black – similar to your car.

    I have not seen any photos of this car, other than the two posted here, so I cannot comment beyond that one issue.



      1. It’s Talladega time guy’s all 3 colors at one auction …I would say the cars are coming out of the wood work… I have some pictures of 191906 from when a Mr. Turres owned it, this one should be the one to bring the money.

        As to the black on the rocker panels, the rocker panels were body color other than the pinch weld at the lower edge which was black or lets say the rocker lip ….also the floor lip is black ! the black is a 20% flat black.

        After some of the sales last night all 3 T,s should do OK !!

        Rick O…

  3. They didn’t fair well in Scottsdale, missed if they showed 509 sold for 49500, 559 sold during a commercial sold for 38500. Thinking unless your into GM and Mustangs stay home and save money

    1. Well White T at 68,200 $ that one should have sold later Friday night… I feel it would have done at least 20 K more… at Barrett-Jackson Friday Night or Saturday night is the time to sell ! Look’s like for the General buyer it is the year of the Kustoms…..I feel Muscle cars are on the low side of the scale ..
