It is that time again to answer the question; “How Many Talladega Cars Exist?”. I like to update these totals approximately one time per year. Next up will be the other major cars in the Registry: 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler, Spoiler II and Color Code cars.
You may want to go back and look at what these totals were in 2020 or 2017. If so, simply click on the year. These years will give you a perspective of how things have changed over the past few years. From 2020 until this date in 2021 an additional 10 Talladega cars were added to the Registry. I think this answers the question; “Are there any cars out there to be found?”. The answer is YES!
Of this total of 184 cars:
- 7 of them have been crushed or parted out;
- 40 have been confirmed but have not yet been registered, this includes cars that have been confirmed crushed;
- 144 cars have been registered.
Of the 184 car total;
- 69 are Royal Maroon;
- 62 are Wimbledon White;
- 53 are Presidential Blue.
The condition of Registered cars was provided by the owner. Every owner likely has a slightly different opinion about how good any particular car is. I have found some underestimate their car’s condition while others exaggerate it. I can also confirm that several cars that listed in one condition have since been restored or otherwise improved since they submitted the Registration. Most owners fail to update their Registrations once the restoration is completed. I will not change registrations without the owner’s submission or direction to do so.
The condition options are from 1 to 6 with 1 being the very best. You can find a more detailed description on the registration page of this site.
Condition of Talladegas*:
- Condition #1 = 3
- Condition #2 = 37
- Condition #3 = 45
- Condition #4 = 22
- Condition #5 =34
- Condition #6 = 6
- Condition Unknown or not provided = 37
- Crushed = 7
- Total 174
The number of Talladegas found continues to increase. More cars are being found/Registered every year. The ratio of cars Registered by condition seems to be relatively the same. Some number 1 cars have been downgraded to #2 after being put on the road. However, there seem to be more cars undergoing quality restorations than ever before.
In the near future we will also will be taking a look back to the values of these cars over the years and where they stand now. Continue watching this site for an update.
*NOTE: All conditions are based on the condition given at the time the car was registered. We know of some cars in this Registry which have been restored or improved since being registered. However, the Registration has not been updated. The owner must provide the update of the condition whether the car has been restored or totaled and crushed.
