Auction Results


The second round of the kick off to the 2015 Collector Car Auction season is over. It was a two week marathon of trying to track what was happening and trying to predict what would happen next. The excitement of the TV coverage and Aero Cars must have had an impact on Aero Cars, we had three new Registrations over the weekend with one of them being one of the Talladegas that sold at BJ!

Tim Wellborne’s collection did very well with only two cars not meeting reserve and Pam seemed quite happy to take one of the Chargers home that she was particularly fond of.

Here are the results (all prices plus buyer’s premium):


-Lot T135 Dan Gurney Spoiler II was a “Bid Goes On” no sale at $33,000.

-Lot K252 Maroon Talladega sold at $33,000.

-Lot F180 Dodge Daytona Hemi 4-speed sold for $900,000 (Mecum pre-auction estimated at $800,000 to $1,000,000).

-Lot F191 Dodge Daytona 440 4-speed special one off Hemi Orange paint sold for $280,000 (Mecum pre-auction estimated at $225,000 to $275,000).

-Lot F283 Dodge Charger 500 440 automatic but very high optioned, sold for $135,000.

-Lot S132 1970 Plymouth Superbird 440 six pack was a Bid Goes On no sale at $140,000 (Mecum pre-auction estimated at $150,000 to $175,000).

It is all over until the next round. What is your take on the results?


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.
