According to the Webster Dictionary A legend is a “non-historical or unverifiable story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical”; legendary is likewise defined as “celebrated or described in legend”. The right stories can make any car Legendary. Part of the fun and mystique of owning collector cars are the stories behind them. The stories about how they were acquired, about the breakdowns, about the special trips and especially about the people encountered along the way. Legendary Collector Cars are not made in a factory, they are made on the street, at the racetracks and at car shows. They can be Muscle Cars, Sports Cars, Hot Rods, Rat Rods, Classic Cars, Antique Cars, Collector Cars or any other car you love. This page is about our Legends and about making your car a Legend.

    I’m researching infomation for a friend who owns a Cyclone Spoiler II which is in need of total restoration. His father purchased this car brand new and it has been parked for many years in a barn. My question is that his car is white with red decals/red interior but reads Dan Gurney on the decals? Do you have any information on why this would be? The son knows what he has and that it is a very limited built car and also knows that the colors are backwards but does not know why? Any help would be appreciated….Thanks Wanda

  7. rfleener says:

    Wanda, Your friend has a great car in the Spoiler II and will have a lot of fun with it when it is completed. You ask one of the questions that has a very interesting answer. First you need to know that the rear wing and decals were delivered to the dealer in the trunk of the car and were not installed at the factory. I have seen many documented cars without the rear spoiler. Back in the day many buyers in a Mercury dealership just thought the wing was a little too much and did not have the dearer install it. Now for the decals. I have personally never seen this before but the story goes like this and is very believable. Since some dealers received both a red and white Cale Yarborough car as well as a blue and white Dan Gurnery car; and since the decals were not installed at the factory the dealer was free to place the decals on which ever car they chose or leave them off entireley. It seems the dealer chose to use the Cale decals on the Dan car! What is the correct thing to do; put the Gurney decals on as the factory intended or put the Yarborough decals on as the dealer did? That is the big question. My answer is if there is no documentation that the car came from the dealer with the Yarborough decals I would put the Gurney decals on it when it is restored. However, if you have photos of the car when it was new, an invoice that lists the Yarborough decals or some other evidence then I would absolutely use the Yarborough decals. In the end it is entirely up to the restorer and owner to do what makes them happy. Let me know how this turns out.

    I have a 1969 amx for sale that needs a auto tranny rear band adjustor tool # J22698 and was wondering if you knew where to buy a tool or rent or borrow? anything bwsparts@yahoo.com

  9. P Jamieson says:

    Everyone has to realize that Ford did many spur of the moment things in those day’s without any documentation. They had no one to document it for. They were in charge. The “390” fender emblem was moot in late 68. There were a few mules built with 428 CJ’s that still retained the 390 fender emblem’s.

  10. Steven Shackelford says:

    My father owned a 69 Yenko camaro and I believe it is now in Cliff Ernst’s collection. The car was yellow with a black vinyl top and black stipes. Could you tell me if his collection is viewable?

    Thanks

  11. Richard says:

    The collection is only open by appointment and then only to groups.

  12. Richard, I know Barry Miller, with the Benny Parson Talladega. He told me about your web sight. It is a great sight!
    I have owned a 69 Royal Maroon Talladega a few years ago. I sold it and ofcourse regreted it eversince. I had another and it was wrecked by a young man, and a deer.
    Anyway I kept the front end of the Talladega. I put it on a 69 Torino GT. I have had it since 1973. It is fun to show and drive. No one knows what it is, a Talladega clone? Would I be welcome to the reunion next year with my car? I am in the process of rebuilding it now.
    Thanks,
    Mike

  13. Richard says:

    Mike, Keep us posted on your car. Would like to see some photos of what you are doing. We have a limit to how many cars car be entered in the indoor show and those will go to the “authentic” Talladega Family cars first and if there is space remaining you are welcome to bring your “Clone”. When we publish the registration form, fill it our and send it in. That will put you in line for a space. I know of one or two others who are doing similar projects. Hope to see you next year at the Reunion.
