Cale Yarborough's 1968 Mercury Cyclone NASCAR diecast model car

Collecting NASCAR diecast race cars is one of the most fun and challenging aspects of building a diecast car collection.  It is fun because NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in America today and just about everybody has a favorite driver, team or sponsor.  It is challenging because there are soooo many different graphics packages used by each team and driver that it is virutally impossible, or prohibitively expensive to collect all of the different versions of a particular car…even for a single season!

That’s why I find it more rewarding to collect limited edition NASCAR race cars from the fifties, sixties and seventies.  These drivers are already legends with many having been inducted into the NASCAR HALL of FAME.  And you know that back then, a driver raced the same car all year long so the diecast race car you buy is the one that was driven for an entire season!

In addition, NASCAR does not produce cars from that period in their history unless it is historically significant.  Plus most of these drivers are still alive so you also get your hands on autographed versions that significantly enhance the collectibility of your purchase.

Arriving on January 17th, you can be the first to own a fantastic diecast model car replica of Cale Yarborough’s 1968 Mercury Cyclone.  Just released by NASCAR this month, only 300 of these cars will ever be produced with Cale’s hand-signed autograph.

 

Press Release:
Racing legend Cale Yarborough is one of NASCAR’s most beloved and successful drivers. With four Daytona 500 victories and three Winston Cup Championships, Yarborough is 5th on NASCAR’s all-time winners list! To celebrate Cale’s first Daytona 500 win, we are proud to offer this autographed 1968 Mercury Cyclone. Personally signed by Cale himself, his Wood Brothers racecar is masterfully replicated in diecast metal in this officially licensed “Legends” collectible. Lift the hood on #21 to view the intricately wired and detailed 427 cid V-8. Inspect the race ready interior and Goodyear slicks. Finished in authentic race day graphics with original sponsor decals and logos, this vintage NASCAR Cyclone is truly stunning!

    I would purchase this car if it was in 1:18 scale. I collect only 1:18 scale cars.

    Collecting diecast models is a great way to be able to enjoy cars that most people wouldn’t be able to afford to buy the real thing, so we can enjoy them on a smaller scale. Very nice, well-organized blog. Good job!!
