Big Finish For Mecum Auto Auction

Filed under: Kissimmee Event,Orlando Events |

The Mecum Auction in Kissimmee comes to a close this weekend and judging from the results of the last four days, we can expect a big finish to the event as some of the most valuable automobiles on the planet come under the auction block over the weekend.

At 2pm to 3pm today, NASCAR driver Ken Schrader will sign autographs in front of the Silver Spurs Building at Osceola Heritage Park and this is sure to attract a large crowd.

Days three and four of the event continued to bring high impact bidding action to the block, garnering an incredible sell through rate of 75%. The impressive mix of sold vehicles was led by a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Bloomington Gold Benchmark 427/435 HP, 4-speed (Lot T188 – pictured above). This unrestored Survivor brought $227,500.

Other top sellers include a 2007 Bentley GTC Convertible (Lot T206) that hammered for $101,000, a 1969 Shelby GT350 Fastback (Lot T177) for $85,000, and a 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible (Lot I57) that went for $73,000.

Nearly 400 cars per day are currently crossing the auction block but perhaps the head of the pack so far has been a 1969 Corvette L88 427/430 HP, 4-speed Convertible (Lot F199 – pictured above) that brought the hammer down at a lofty $610,000! All three prior owners were on site as the yellow beast was auctioned.

Mopar’s were well represented on day 4, with a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi, 426/425 HP, 4-speed (Lot F170.1 – above left)) commanding $125,000, and a 1970 Plymouth Superbird 440/375 HP, Automatic (Lot F281.1) sold at $108,000. BowTie enthusiasts cheered when a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door Restomod, 454 CI, Automatic (Lot F74.1 – above right) fetched $127,500.

Today is Day 5 and it promises to be one of more frenzied activity as the 1961 Corvette Gulf Race Car (pictured above) takes center stage. The gavel action starts with Road Art at 8:30 AM, and vehicles roll across at 9:00 AM. Live coverage runs on Velocity from 2:00 – 10:00 PM. All times Eastern.
