 In less than a month, the hammer will be dropping on the annual Mecum January auction in Kissimmee, Florida. The event, held at the Osceola Heritage Park, will run from January 24-29.
 Consignments are rolling in and there are expected to be 2,000 vehicles crossing the block through the period of the show, highlighted by a number of muscle and collectibles.
 We’re showcasing a small sample here, but you can find complete details at www.mecum.com.

1967 Corvette

If there is one car that appears on virtually every Corvette devotee’s wish list, it is most assuredly this one: an entirely original, unrestored 1967 Tri Power 4-speed Corvette convertible, with complete documentation, full ownership history and all the top awards to its credit. Finished in its original and very desirable Marina Blue with Black stinger, Bright Blue interior, matching soft top and Black auxiliary hard top, this amazing find also retains its original, entirely matching-numbers drivetrain, original Kelsey-Hayes bolt-on aluminum wheels and - perhaps most remarkably - the factory-installed non-DOT Uniroyal Laredo Whitewall tires. Showing just 53,514 miles, the car is fully documented with the original Protect-O-Plate and tank sticker, owner’s manual, radio instruction tag, even the original keys and license plate mounting screws. It also carries with it a treasure trove of awards, including Bloomington Gold, Benchmark and Survivor certification and NCRS Top Flight certification

1969 Daytona

One of just 502 built by Dodge and one of only 9 factory-finished in F8 Dark Green Metallic paint, this 1969 Dodge Daytona is well equipped and virtually as new, with a freshly rebuilt and correctly detailed 440/375 HP Magnum V-8 backed by a rebuilt TorqueFlite automatic and Dana 60 rear end. The Black bucket seat interior features a center console, gauges, AM radio, factory wood-rimmed steering wheel, rear window defogger and all new seat covers, headliner and carpets. The front disc brake calipers have been rebuilt and the car is further freshened with new gas tank and lines, brake lines, exhaust system and chrome tips and a rechromed rear bumper. A Janek nose cone, White wing and Daytona stripe, date-code-correct steel wheels with dog dish caps and Redline Coker tires complete this rare Winged Warrior.

1969 Shelby

Turn Key Restorations performed an expert rotisserie restoration on this stunning Candy Apple Red 1969 Shelby GT350 convertible, which boasts its original 351/290 HP Ram Air engine, 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission and all-original body panels. The well-appointed Deluxe décor interior, also completely original except for a new carpet, offers factory air conditioning, AM/FM radio and a power top, with power steering, power front disc brakes and the Visibility Group rounding out the equipment list. This Shelby dream machine is accompanied by a Marti Report.
