543 Vehicles Hammer Sold for Amazing 85% Sell-Through Rate
WALWORTH, MI – November 5, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Mecum’s most recent live classic and collector car auction was held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis this past weekend, and the event marked another in a long line of safely and successfully executed live auctions for the world’s largest collector-car auction company. Total overall sales reached $13.4 million as an unprecedented 85% of all cars offered at the reserve-based auction hammered sold.
The Fall Special’s top seller was a nearly new 2018 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 (Lot F141) wearing a bold coat of Arancio Borealis orange with just 1,986 miles on its odometer that sold for $187,000. The Italian supercar was followed closely by a 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro (Lot S88) with a matching-numbers drivetrain that sold for $165,000, a pro-touring, frame-off restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible (Lot S127) that sold for $154,000 and a rare 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E (Lot S81) that brought $132,000. Three Corvettes made it into the top-sales mix as well with a classic ’63 split-window (Lot S60) selling for $151,250, a contrasting modern 2020 coupe (Lot S101.1) bringing $104,500 and a 2012 ZR1 Centennial Edition (Lot F111) demanding $102,300. Off-road riders would have appreciated the 1971 Ford Bronco (Lot S118) that came in as the auction’s seventh highest seller at $115,500 and the 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 (Lot S138) that followed it, selling for $110,000.
Private collections were another highlight of the Indy event with at least 10 of them offered throughout the three auction days. Ben and Karen’s Collection saw nine vehicles change hands for a total of $457,600, while Mike’s Camaro Collection reached $446,050 in sales as six of the seven vehicles from the assemblage hammered sold.
