1,000 Vehicles to be Featured at Mecum Denver 2017 at
Colorado Convention Center
WALWORTH, WI – June 27, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Mecum Auctions, the world’s largest collector-car auction company, will return to Denver July 20-22 at the Colorado Convention Center featuring an estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, Hot Rods, Resto Mods and more to cross the auction block.
This is the third year that Mecum Auctions has staged a collector-car auction in Denver, with the first two annual events amassing a combined $23 million in sales with consignments from at least 23 different states.
Among the main attractions consigned for Mecum Denver 2017 is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (Lot S108) that is No. 30 of the just 69 ZL1s produced and one of the few surviving examples with the original all-aluminum 427 cubic-inch ZL1 engine. The car was expertly restored in 2004 when the odometer showed just 8.4 miles, and it remains in virtually perfect condition today—now showing only 328 original miles—having earned several impressive awards, including First in Class, Best Paint, Best Engine Compartment and a score of 986/1,000 points at the Camaro Nationals.
Other featured lots include a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 (Lot S110), a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (Lot S113) that was bought new by Walter C. Davidson Jr., son of Harley-Davidson co-founder Walter Davidson, with a matching-numbers 327/300 HP engine and automatic transmission, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Resto Mod (Lot S115) featuring a Ramjet 502 CI engine and a 700R4 automatic transmission, and a 1970 Pontiac GTO Convertible (Lot S106) with a 462/525 HP engine and GM Turbo 400 automatic transmission that has benefited from a frame-off restoration.
