Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center to Host 1,000-Car Auction July 28-31
WALWORTH, WI – July 7, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Following the record-setting Kissimmee 2021 auction that reached $141 million in sales this past January, Mecum Auctions will return to Central Florida July 28-31 to host the 2021 Mecum Summer Special, offering an estimated 1,000 consignments at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. The event was originally planned to span just three days, July 29-31, but due to an overwhelming response from customers eager to participate, it was expanded to include Wednesday, July 28 as well.
Among the featured lots consigned to date is a 1969 Dodge Daytona NASCAR (Lot S142) that was driven by country music legend Marty Robbins at the National 500 in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1970. Re-discovered in 2005, the car had a rotisserie restoration completed by Ray Evernham’s Big Iron Garage before being unveiled to the public at the 50th anniversary of the Aero Wars, hosted by Tim Wellborn at the Talladega Speedway.
A one-of-one 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Slantnose (Lot S93) is also slated to join the Summer Special auction lineup. The car was custom built by Porsche’s Special Wishes program and includes a rare factory power kit. Powered by a 3.3L engine with a 4-speed transmission, the car sports a Guards Red exterior with a Champagne leather interior, including the dash.
Three Chevrolet Corvettes—a 1958 convertible (Lot S163), a 1963 split-window coupe (Lot S111.1) and a 2020 3LT convertible (Lot S143) that is the final 2020 Corvette produced—serve as a good, focused representation of the diversity in age, design and technology to be offered among the event’s expected 1,000-car lineup.
