December Auction Adds Another to the Year’s Long List of Increased Sales
WALWORTH, WI – December 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Mecum Auctions closed out 2018 this past weekend in Kansas City, Missouri, achieving overall sales totals of $8.7 million. The increase in sales over the 2017 Kansas City auction makes this year’s event another in a long line of auctions that have seen significant one-year growth. Individual sales were topped by a rare black 2006 Ford GT (Lot S120.1) with just 870 miles that brought $308,000.
As an auction noted for its annual delivery of a wonderfully diverse and varied lineup, this year’s event produced a surprisingly focused top 10 sales list. Seven of the top 10 sales were Chevrolets and four of those were Corvettes. It was two Resto Modded Camaros, however, that followed the Ford GT in top dollars achieved, with a 1967 model (Lot F243) selling for $77,000 and a 1969 (Lot F69) bringing $74,250. Others to appear in the top 10 included a pickup truck, a Bentley and a Cobra Replica, demonstrating that despite Chevrolet’s top 10 takeover, variety was indeed still on tap.
