|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The Spoiler was available with two trim options, the red and white Cale Yarborough edition was sold east of the Mississippi, while the blue and white Dan Gurney edition was sold west of it. According to NASCAR rules, at least 500 street versions were required to homologate the Spoiler for competition, and estimates place the total number produced from as few as 503 to as many as 519. Of those, only about 40 percent were Dan Gurney-edition cars.
This example is powered by a 390 cubic-inch V-8 engine with a single four-barrel carburetor offering 320 horsepower. There is a SelectShift three-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. Other desirable features include air conditioning, bucket seats with a center console, a Philco pushbutton radio, American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels and B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A tires.
In 2011, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $15,000 - $20,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $33,000 including buyer's premium.
