Here is a question Wayne and I both can’t answer; What does the “757” marking on the rear bumper mount area mean? If you know please leave a comment below or send me an email.

    I always wondered what the fender extensions looked like on the Spoiler II’s . Looks excellent since the resto. Love these Cyclones!

    The car looks great, I just ran into two Dan Gurney Spoiler II barn finds. My question is, where did you get your interior work done? Were you able to find someone that could reporduce the door panels with the plastic chrome rib in it?

    Thanks

    If you would not mind, I would love to talk to you about where you located some of your replacement parts at.

    If you don’t mine sharing, my name is Jim, and I can be reached at 903 581 3562. Thanks

    Jim, Send me some photos of your Barn Finds for our web site Barn Find Page! Send to Richard@LegendaryCollectorCars.com. Wayne can most likely provide you with some more information but if you have some chrome trim and emblems to work with SMS Fabrics can build you some new door panels as well as provide you with the material you need for seats. You can contact Doug at SMS at Doug@smsautofabrics.com. I have used them for material and they are good folks.

    My Daddy bought a 1969 Cale Yarborough brand new and had it for over 30 Years. He has 5 daughters and we grew up with this car, well in the late 90’s money was tight and he had to sell it, which was so sad because this was his baby and none of us kids could afford it as we were married with families of our own. Always wanting to know where the car is and wishing for a return, it’s been hard. My Daddy passed away 2 years ago and I tried my best before that to find it and I still wish I could! Does anyone know where I could search to at least find the car! This is my life goal to find my Daddy’s car. Thanks in advance, Karen

    Karen, if you happen to know the VIN for the car your dad owned you can go to our other web site http://www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com We have many of the cars known still to exist listed there. If you don’t have the VIN but know who it was sold to we might also be able to help.
