The collector car auction action in Las Vegas moves this week from Mandalay Bay to the Las Vegas Convention Center where Mecum Auctions will stage its third annual Las Vegas sale October 10-12.
In addition to an anticipated 1,000 collector vehicles and 400 items of Road Art (automobilia), the sale will feature the inaugural “Mecum Presents Guitar Search by Domino,” with bidding open on 25 “investment-grade” guitars.
Mecum points to an unrestored 1971 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T in black paint over a black interior, and with a 426cid Hemi V8 and 4-speed manual transmission; a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona in Argento Metallizzato over Nero interior, and with Ferrari Classiche and Marcel Massini verification; and to the Robert Thomas TA Collection of Pontiac Trans Ams as highlights of the vehicle docket.
The Thomas TA Collection cars will be offered with no reserve and range from two 4-speed 400 CI 1970 models to a flamboyant, 54,000-mile 1999 30th anniversary edition car.
Other “star” vehicles include a 1967 Chevrolet SS 427, 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante, 1966 Chevrolet Yenko Stinger, 1994 Toyota Supra, a 1969 Shelby GT350, a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS and a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette convertible.
Among the Road Art features are more than 350 signs, coolers, gas pumps, clocks and more from the Surf City Garage Collection, including a 1950s-era double-sided porcelain and neon Sandman Motel sign.
Headlining the guitars on offer are six guitars from the collection of Geddy Lee of Rush, including a 1959 Gibson Les Paul standard electric in Sunburst finish. Also being offered are a 1983 PRS double-neck formerly owned by Carlos Santana, a 2016 Gibson No. 31 custom created for an autographed by Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and a 1990 Warwick Buzzard bass designed for John Entwistle of The Who.
