A 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T SE led the bidding at Mecum’s collector car auction last weekend in Seattle, where total sales reached $9,517,676.

The restored Plum Crazy Challenger, a true R-code car with four-speed manual transmission, sold for a high bid of $185,000 (sales results do not include auction fees). The second-highest sale was for a modern exotic, a 1999 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster that hammered at $170,000.

The much-anticipated sale of five American muscle cars from the John Wickey Collection totaled $630,000, led by a 1968 Ford Shelby GT500KR Fastback with 12,160 miles for $165,000, and a 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro for $155,000.

Nearly 600 cars crossed the block at Seattle, although the sell-through rate was not available from Mecum.
