For sale in our Chicago showroom is one super rare 1969 Ford Torino Talladega. The Talladega was named after the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama and was only manufactured in first few weeks of 1969. The sole purpose of this production car was to make Ford even more competitive in NASCAR stock car racing and due to homologation rules had to have enough vehicles available for sale to the general public which was 500 in 1969. It is believed that a total of 754 Talladegas may have been built, although the Talladega/Spoiler Registry can only account for a maximum of 750 and only 264 were finished in Wimbeldon white. This number includes all prototypes, pilot cars, and production cars built, plus a special post-production car that was built for the president of Ford Motor Company, Semon Emil "Bunkie" Knudsen.
All of the production Talladegas came equipped with the 428 Ford Cobra Jet V8 that proved to be very strong and reliable and the only additional option was the AM radio at a retail cost of $61.40. This car seems to be a very original and preserved example which is just the way you like to see them. A copy of the dealer invoice is included as well as a Marti report showing the production date as 2/25/69 - Three days ahead of schedule. With such low initial production numbers and being that the car was built for racing there are few of these fine machines left and now is your chance to have one in your very own garage.
Pop open that hood and you are greeted with the original 428 Cobra Jet that starts easy and runs strong and smooth. The C-6 transmission shifts very nice and gets this aerodynamic racer up to speed without hesitation. The rear axles were just replaced along with wheel bearings making the car ready for the road and is sure to turn some heads at your next cruise night or car show. When was the last time you saw one???
