Mecum Kissimmee 2017, the world’s largest collector-car auction held Jan. 6-15, at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, achieved more than $86 million in total sales. Of the nearly 2,700 vehicles to cross the auction block throughout the 10-day auction, a total of 1,981 vehicles were sold, accounting for a 75-percent sell-through rate, an astonishing accomplishment for a reserve-based auction platform. The Road Art® side of Mecum Kissimmee 2017 saw similar success with a 93-percent sell-through rate, a 5-percent increase over last year’s Kissimmee auction. A total of 1,260 pieces of Road Art and rare parts were sold during the auction for a total of $2.5 million.
Engagement and excitement throughout the 2017 auction was unprecedented. The crowd’s enthusiasm translated to a hefty 20-percent increase in ticket sales over 2016 as Muscle cars and Corvettes from the 1960s and ‘70s dominated the Mecum roster with healthy hammer prices from start to finish. Virtually all categories of collector-car interest were represented among the huge array of offerings including European exotics, Resto Mods and supercars, all of which claimed their place among Mecum top sales.
