At the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale 2014 Auction a slightly modified and not very well detailed Presidential Blue Talladega sold for $110,000 including buyer’s premium. Since that time there have been a few of the other Ford Aero cars sell and the prices on those seem to be up as well. A seminar was conducted as part of the Scottsdale auctions at the same time as the BJ auction. More than one of the panelist among the multiple experts from the collector car business picked the Talladega as a car to buy now. It was agreed that it is currently undervalued along with its Mercury siblings.

Here is a hint, it is the car Richard Petty raced in NASCAR in the 1969 season; the only year he drove a Ford!
If you think you are too late or don’t want to miss out on all the fun of owning a rare 428 CJ powered Ford Talladega from 1969 you have another opportunity. Jon Wood is taking his beautifully detailed Presidential Blue Talladega to the Barrett Jackson Palm Beach FL Auction on April 11-13, 2014. Jon and his car have been regular participants at our events and we hate to see the car leave the fold and certainly hope who ever buys it will be as supportive as Jon.
Here are some photos of the car and if you are a serious Talladega fan this would make a great addition to your collection or the perfect foundation car to build a collection around.
