HEAR THIS CAR RUN, CLICK AUDIO
Only 41 Cale Yarborough Spoilers were built with the largest engine available, the legendary 428 CJ Ram Air! These cars were only built one model year, 1969. The car in our collection is a fully documented authentic car which is one of only 10 known to still exist (Registry Information).
In 1969 Mercury built only 617 Spoilers as tribute cars to Cale Yarborough. Their paint schemes were identical to his race car (just no sponsor decals or race numbers added). This 428 CJ Ram Air car came from the factory with the competition suspension, F70x14″ fiberglass belted white letter tires, blacked our grill, special paint scheme, functional hood scoop, bench seats, hood pins, styled steel wheels, AM radio, tachometer, power steering, and power disc brakes. The 428 CJ is listed in the specs as a 335 HP engine with 385 ft lb of torque. Most experts agree that the real HP was purposely listed very low for insurance purposes and the real output is likely well over 400 HP.
This car is driven regularly and has been featured on Spike TV’s PowerBlock, Muscle Car TV, Mother’s Muscle Car TV and featured in Mustangs and Fords magazine, featured in Ford’s official Racing magazine Inside the Oval, as will as photographed for the book The Art of the Muscle Car by Motorbooks.
