Mecum’s recent Kansas City auction, held Dec. 5-7 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Missouri, saw sales reach an overall total of $9 million at the three-day event as a total of 410 vehicles hammered sold for a strong 70% sell-through rate.
Both modern beauties and stunning classics made a showing in the top-selling spots at the Kansas City auction, and while the top two sellers wore the Ford Blue Oval, it was the Bowtie brand that dominated with six Chevrolets landing on the top 10 list. The auction’s No. 1 highest sale was achieved by a 2005 Ford GT with 15,122 actual miles that sold for $247,500. Following closely in the second spot was a gorgeous, vintage 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 fastback that brought $231,000.
Among the top-selling Chevrolets were four Corvettes including a body-off, nut-and-bolt-restored 1967 convertible, a fuel-injected 1963 split-window coupe, an Aztec Copper 1957 convertible and a bold Sportsman Red-on-red 1954 roadster.
