Mecum Auctions returned to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas this week and runs through Saturday, October 6 with an estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, classics, exotics, Corvettes, Hot Rods, Resto Mods and more set to cross the auction block.
According to the Dallas Business Journal, the auction is expected to top $30 million in sales with bidders registering from 44 states. That’s 35 percent more pre-registered bidders than last year.
Mecum Dallas Highlights
In addition to the auction-headlining LaFerrari Aperta and LaFerrari Coupe that was unveiled on Oct. 1, the auction highlights for Mecum Dallas 2018 include a host of other collector favorites. Among some of the standouts are a 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible and a 1957 Buick Super Convertible, both of which have benefited from body-off restorations, as well as a pair of highly documented 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS Z28s with matching-numbers 302 cubic-inch engines and 4-speed transmissions.
Several private collections also headline the auction lineup. Among those consigned is The Smith Collection with a broad collection of Corvettes. They include a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible and a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition that served as an Indy 500 Festival Car with just 2,827 miles since new.
The Z28 Collection to be offered on Friday is another focused assemblage, this one presenting Chevrolet Camaro Z28s ranging from the model and performance package’s introduction in 1967 through a 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Pace Car Edition.
Among collections set to be offered entirely at no-reserve is the 12-car offering from The Sickies Garage Collection featuring classic muscle, drag cars and Pro Street selections; The Leaded Gas Collection encompassing a vast selection of vehicles from pickups and Porsches to American muscle; as well as the 10-vehicle offering from The Henderson Pitt Collection comprising classic trucks and cars with unique appeal.
