With over 300 Corvettes to be offered throughout this week at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee, it’s no surprise that on day two of the massive six-day auction the top seller was just that.
A Goodwood Green/Saddle interior 1967 Corvette 427/435 HP 4-speed Convertible (Lot H3.1) sold for $109,000. Total sales for the Wednesday auction exceeded $6 Million with an impressive 78% sell-through.
Other top sellers from the day included a 2011 Bourget Python Super Stretch Chopper (Lot W195) raising $100,000 for “Welcome Back Veterans”, an organization committed to providing post-traumatic stress disorder treatment for veterans and their families. A 1957 Chevy Pro Street (Lot W114) sold for $80,000 and a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (Lot W257) hammered for $71,000.
Today’s auction was broadcast live for eight hours on Discovery’s Velocity Network.
