Two-Day, 600-Car Auction to Take Place at River Spirit Expo, June 11-12
WALWORTH, WI – April 20, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) -Mecum Auctions welcomed in the New Year with $141 million in January auction sales and the announcement of a new-for-2021 auction event to be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Slated for June 11-12 at River Spirit Expo at Expo Square, home to the Tulsa State Fair and just a short jaunt from downtown Tulsa and the historic Route 66, the auction will bring the renowned Mecum Auctions platform and a host of classics, Hot Rods, muscle cars and more to the Sooner State with an anticipated 600 collector vehicles expected to cross the auction block over two action-packed days.
Tulsa’s location right in the heart of America bridges the gap between Mecum’s auctions in the Midwest and those in the South, making it an exceptional locale for the introduction of a new auction event. Early consignments bolster that belief with an array of amazing autos already lined up to cross the Tulsa auction block this June. Highlighted by the Elkin Brothers Collection of 14 eclectic collector vehicles, the expected 600-car lineup is shaping up to be an exceptional group. A 2005 Ford GT (Lot S105) with all four available options, two 1970 Chevrolet Chevelles (Lots S100 and S101)—one of which is a convertible—and three classic Ford Broncos (Lots S99, S102 and S103) are just a few of the many high quality consignments already on the docket.
A large part of Mecum’s mission as a company is to extend the collector car auction experience to as many interested participants as possible, and the best way to achieve that goal is by taking the auction action right into the backyards of enthusiasts in all corners of the country. While television broadcasts of Mecum events have been exceptionally successful in providing entertainment and engaging experiences for countless fans and enthusiasts alike, nothing can compare to the live, in-person experience of attending a Mecum auction.

Bidder registration is available online in advance and on-site at the auction for $200, and it includes admission for two to both auction days.
