Mecum Offers Winged Wonders at Kissimmee

The last 12 months have seen intense market movement surrounding winged Mopars. Considering that, it’s no surprise to see Mecum consign at least a dozen of them to its upcoming 4,000-car Kissimmee sale in early January — and that’s just the ones from the Gary Edwards Wing Car & Mopar Collection.

Among them is this car, which features its original drivetrain and has just 31,300 miles.

Per David Wise, this is one of two known Limelight examples with its original engine and transmission. The engine is a Hemi, and that transmission is a 4-speed. This is a Track-Pak example, complete with the Dana 60 and a 3.54 Sure Grip. Options include power steering, power disc brakes, bucket seats, tinted windshield and more. 

The car’s had one repaint in its original color, and has a vinyl top — customary on Superbirds. The car comes with its original fender tag, window sticker and original broadcast sheet.

In addition to that, the collection also includes this ’69 Hemi Daytona, which has just 6,490 miles from new and has two broadcast sheets.

This is the lowest-mile original engine 4-speed Daytona known — and the first Mopar restored with the correct factory markings on the undercarriage. It was once part of the Otis Chandler Collection and was later owned by both Kevin Greene and David Spade.

So what’s are these cars worth? Well, see what we’ve tracked in the past to get an idea. That said, the market is always moving, so we’ll just have to wait for Kissimmee to see for sure.
