This is the fourth year that Mecum Auctions has staged a collector-car auction in Harrisburg, and the event continues to be a regional and even national draw among collector-car enthusiasts with consignors and buyers expected from more than 25 states.
Among the main attractions consigned for Mecum Harrisburg 2017 is a 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7 Convertible (Lot S118) in special-order Tahoe Turquoise with just 3,518 original miles, and a 1969 Dodge Daytona (Lot S91) that has a 440 CI V-8 engine, a 727 TorqueFlite transmission and features the rare Q5 Bright Turquoise Metallic with white wing combination exterior and the C6W White interior.

Immediately following the Daytona’s offering will be a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird (Lot S92) that is one of just 58 Hemi Superbirds produced with a four-speed transmission.
