My goodness that is sad. I am not kidding, I am apparently a true car nut because that hurts my heart to look at that. Poor car deserved better.

Other than color ( Maroon, Blue, and White ) the only other option was a am radio. That's talking about production cars. There were Prototypes, and pilot cars also. Total production 754 including the proto's and pilot cars. Pilot cars were test vehicles and crash vehicles. The special built cars ( Knudsen's, two to Banjo Mathers, Bill France, and Ralph Moody were included in the prototypes. There were 7-9 prototypes built and green, red, yellow and black were colors that were used on these cars. Also there were two 1970 prototypes built but I don't know if they were included in the total number of cars built.
Knudsen's car in reality wasn't a Talladega. It started out as a Ford Cobra Torino and it was modified as a Talladega.
If the Maroon car in the question is the one of two New Mexico Talladegas, then that makes it the last production Talladega built. As far as who owned it, all four of the owners were average citizens. It was originally bought off the floor. The first owner drove it 50,000 and the engine quit. He sold it. The second owner was a high school graduating student. He never got it running. The third owner bought it as a investment. He never got it running. The last owner knew about it, researched it, found out that it was the last one and hounded the third owner to sell it to him. He got it running.
