As it heads to Houston for its final on-site sale of the year, Mecum Auctions is reporting results from its most recent such event, its collector car auction November 20-21 at Kansas City, where a 70 percent sell-through rate sent 249 vehicles to new owners for a total price of $7 million.
The Kansas City event was Mecum’s fourth such sale in six weeks, the company noted.
Ford products claimed half of the positions in the auction’s top-10 listing, including the top-3 — a 2005 Ford GT, a 1970 Mustang Boss 429 and a 1970 Shelby GT500. Also making the list were a 1957 Fairlane 500 Skyliner and a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 Twister special edition, a fastback, Mecum noted, “originally built with the specific purpose of appealing to residents of the surrounding Midwestern region.”
The auction also featured The Etzel Family Collection, which sold in its entirety with three of its consignments among the top-10 — a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible, a 1936 Diamond T REO flatbed truck and a 1955 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.
