Mecum’s Kissimmee auction is one of the company’s biggest events of the year — and for 2021, it set a new record as the largest single auction event in the company’s 34-year history.
At Osceola Heritage Park, 2,030 cars went to new owners over ten days for a final total of $122.8m.
Then, a few days later, Mecum hosted an extension of the Kissimmee sale at Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda, Florida, selling another 200 mostly GM muscle cars for an additional $18.4m.
Combined, those events bring Mecum’s January total to a whopping $141.2m.
The high sale of the event went to Carroll Shelby’s personal 427 Cobra — CSX3178 — at $5.94m, followed by the first 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 convertible at $2.5m and a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing for $1,567,500.
At Muscle Car City, the high sale of the day was a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Resto-mod at $368,500, followed by a 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro at $297,000. One of the more surprising lots was a custom-built 1965 Chevrolet C10 4×4 pickup. Fitted with a Tri-Power 427-ci big block, it hammered sold for $198,000.
