Exceptional 82% Sell-Through Rate Achieved,
612 Cars Change Hands Over 3 Days
WALWORTH, WI – October 22, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Mecum’s recent auction held in Dallas this past Oct. 15-17 yet again showcased continued momentum in the live classic and collector car auction arena and achieved excellent overall sales results with 612 cars hammering sold in just three days for an exceptional 82% sell-through rate and a grand total of $23.8 million. Highlighted by the $302,500 sale of a 2006 Ford GT (Lot S99), individual sale prices at the auction were as strong as the auction’s healthy totals, and the diversity of available offerings was well reflected by the auction’s top 10 seller’s list.
From the aforementioned leading 2,150-mile Ford GT to the runner-up Resto-Modded 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (Lot S109) that sold for $242,000, the entire list of top sellers hammered in the six-figure range, and the only theme among them was an ultra-high standard of quality that translated directly to an equally high level of desirability. A stunning, Grabber Blue, 4-speed 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback (Lot S90) brought $225,500, while a 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB (Lot S110.1) with just 10,000 miles sold for $184,250. An awesome and award-winning 1949 Chevrolet 3100 Resto Mod pickup (Lot S116) sold for $165,000, and a 4-speed, 440-6 BBL-equipped 1970 Plymouth Superbird(Lot S101) brought $151,800. Rounding out the varied top 10 sales was another low-mileage Ferrari: a final-year, 1991 Testarossa (Lot S151) showing just 10,234 miles and boasting a relatively recent major servicing performed by Motion Products, Inc.
