Mecum Auctions wrapped up its 2019 sales calendar this past weekend in Kansas City, Missouri, where the three-day event totaled $9 million in sales. Bidders bought 410 of the vehicles offered as the sale posted a 70 percent sell-through rate, the company reported.

“Both modern beauties and stunning classics made a showing in the top-selling spots at the Kansas City auction,” the company said, adding that “while the top two sellers wore the Ford Blue Oval, it was the Bowtie brand that dominated with six Chevrolets landing on the top 10 list.”

The top sales were a 2005 Ford GT at $247,500 and a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 at $231,000.

Leading the top-10 Chevrolets were a pair of Corvettes, a 1967 convertible for $181,500 and a 1963 split-window coupe for $129,500.

  1. Sir, I’ve noticed at most Auctions there is mostly Fords and Corvettes, why do you hardly ever see a 1970 442 455, M-21 4-SPEED, 1970 BUICK GSX 455, M-21 4 SPEED, or a 1969-70 Pontiac G.T.O. 455 M-21 4-SPEED Up For Auction?? I’m a big fan of the G.M. 1970 455 Torque Monster Engine 500 plus ft. lbs. of Torque, but they are rarely up for Auction??
