McCormick’s bidder-friendly collector car auction, held for the 72nd time in Palm Springs, California, reached $6,655,369 in sales, with 267 of 394 vehicles hammered sold.
The highest seller was an Italian/American collaboration, a 1967 Ghia 450SS coupe that sold for $180,200 (including auction fee). The attractive coachbuilt 450SS coupes and convertibles were penned by famed Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, who based them on the Plymouth Barracuda.
An estimated 52 of these hand-built cars were produced by Ghia, and were sold exclusively through a Beverly Hills, California, importer.
Other top sellers were a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL roadster at $133,560 and a 1961 Chevrolet Impala 409 2-door hardtop that sold for $121,900.
McCormick’s next auction is scheduled for November 18-20 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. For more information, visit the auction website.
