1969 Cale Yarborough 390 4-Speed SOLD
I recently came across an extremely rare 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Cale Yarborough Spoiler with a 390 4-speed. The car also has PS and PB. The car is mostly apart with some items missing. The engine and trans appear to be numbers matching but the engine may need to be rebuilt. I have not tried to start it but was told it had not been rebuilt. I have a Marti Report on the car.
The floors are excellent with the exception of where the floor pan meets the toe board on the passenger side. It appears that maybe the heater box leaked at one time. It is not a bad fix. The driver side cowl vent is rusted away but Tom Wilson makes a patch for these. A restoration was started on the car and it was painted and then set aside for a long time. The new paint has some damage here and there. Rust has developed in the lower driver door but again Tom is making a patch panel for this as well. There is also a little rust in the trunk lid and lower rear quarters behind the wheel wells which is not visible from the outside. The interior is a bench seat car. The lower dash is from a Torino and will need the correct Cyclone part. I have added some of my parts to help complete what is missing but I am sure there will still be items required.
I purchased this car because it is so rare and wanted to help it find the right home. I predict that big block 4-speed Spoilers will eventually be worth the same as a Talladega if they have the right options. I have too many projects and just want to find a good home for this one.
I will listen to trades and offers. This has the Marti Report which states that only 78 390 Cale Yarborough cars were built and only 8 came with the wide ratio 4 speed! In total only 617 Cale Yarborough Spoilers were ever built. This is a very rare car with tremendous up side. A well restored CY Spoiler like this should fetch $55,000 or more. I have a clean clear TN title. If you want to know more about this car please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Price; SOLD.
