The Ford Talladega Returns!

 

 

Is this the new Mustang Talladega?

Note the wing on the back!

This is a very big announcement. We have the scoop no one else has. Because of our dedication to the 1969 Ford Talladega and Mercury Spoiler II Registry Ford granted us special permission to make this announcement before anyone else. On April 17, 1964 Ford first showed the new Mustang at the Worlds Fair. This year on April 17th Ford will announce the new Mustang Talladega!

History

On the NASCAR track in 2019 the Ford Mustang became the Ford race car of choice. In 2021 the historical Ford Talladega will return to the NASCAR track and the street! Yes, you heard me right, for the first time anywhere, THE FORD TALLADEGA RETURNS!

In 1969 the Talladega was built on the same body of the Fairlane/Torino. This was the car that was so successful on the NASCAR race track in 1968. As we all know, the Torino was morphed into the aerodynamic power house Talladega.

More possibilities.

Future

In 2021 history will repeat itself with the return of the Ford Talladega with NASCAR racing in mind. This time our beloved car will find its parental heritage coming from the Mustang. As before, there will be a street version of the NASCAR aero Mustang.

No official photos or details are yet available but rest assured the new Mustang Talladega for the street will be a limited production, big engined and slippery bodied street car for the true Ford enthusiast. We have included a couple of sketches and photos that might give a hint as to what the new Talladega might look like. These obviously are not the final street or race car but they should provide a clear view of the direction the new Ford Mustang Talladega is headed. Wow, can’t wait!

Another approach.

Don’t run down to your local Ford dealer just yet, they are not taking orders or deposits. After all today is April 1, April Fools Day, and as much as I wish this was real it is all Fake News.

About the Author: 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.
