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?

About the Author: Some of my first memories and strongest memories of my childhood relate to cars. I still remember back when things happened based on what car I was drinving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on a unique and rare muscle car. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and their only purpose was to win NASCAR races using their 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 for sure. This site is devoted to them and their owners past and present.
