Mecum reports $36.8 million sales at Dallas auction

Late-model Lamborghini tops the results chart


Mecum Auctions reports an 86 percent sell-through rate and sales of $36.8 million from its recent Dallas Collector Car Auction, with 946 vehicles sold at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

The top sale was $660,000 for a 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ that had been driven only 3,150 miles (sales price include buyer’s fee). 

Three Fords were among the top-10 sales — a 1970 Mustang Boss 429 going for $357,500, a 1968 GT500CR Mustang 900C bringing $335,500, and a replica 1966 GT40, one of six RCR replicas built for use in the Ford v Ferrari movie, selling for $203,500.

The ’68 GT500CR was consigned from the Triple B Collection, which sent 20 vehicles to the sale, where they sold for a collective $1.16 million. Another such grouping, 21 cars from Rick Williams Collection, sold for a combined $920,700, Mecum reported.
