Multi-Million Dollar Muscle Cars SOLD at Mecum Kissimmee 2016

The Mecum Kissimmee Auction, the world’s largest classic and collector car auction, held Jan. 15-24, was a powerful force to be reckoned with claiming the title of highest-grossing sale ever hosted by Mecum. Overall sales totals topped $91 million and are quickly closing in on $93 million with post-auction sales. The 10-day auction totals constitute a near 30-percent increase over last year’s Kissimmee auction with individual vehicle sale prices up by an average of 20 percent. The two full Road Art-exclusive days brought outstanding sales in the memorabilia realm as well with 1,300 items sold and top sales including a rare porcelain sign and a vintage gas pump globe, each of which sold for $55,000.

“The jump in totals, the rise in individual vehicle values and the 78-percent sell-through rate we achieved are evidence of the extremely high quality of the vehicles and Road Art offered at the 2016 event as well as the strong demand. It’s a clear indication of the thriving state of both the collector-car and memorabilia markets,” notes Mecum Auctions’ President and Founder Dana Mecum.

Nearly every segment of popular interest was represented at the auction including European exotics, Resto Mods, Supercars and of course Mecum’s bread-and-butter: muscle cars and Corvettes, both of which made a strong showing in the top 10 sales.

The complete top 10 sales at the Mecum Kissimmee 2016 auction include (individual prices do not include buyer’s premiums):
1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible (Lot F109) at $2,675,000

for an instant I thought it was the Chevrolet opala made in Brazil from 1968 to 1992 but the model similar to that would be the model from 1975 to 1979, a beautiful car

Not a muscle car , and lucky it has 50k on the clock...

I bought a 66 Corsa new, 140 hp, 4x1 carb set up, 4 on the floor ! Loved that car!!

Dad had a 65 Monza that we took fishing a lot. I remember putting some nice fish in that front trunk.
