Mecum Auctions has just wrapped up their auction in Chicago, which proved to be an enormous success. During the three-day event, 615 of the 965 cars to cross the block were sold, making for a 64% sell-through rate and $18,634,223 in sales. This year’s event saw $7 million in growth when compared to last-years Chicago-area auction.
One of the most notable vehicles that crossed the block was the one-of-a-kind personal driver of Corvette’s original designer Harley J. Earl, a 1963 Corvette, which sold for $1.5 million. Coming in as the second highest sale was the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that sold for $500,000. It was #23 of only 69 examples of the ZL1 to be built that year. At the price of $240,000, the third top sale was a one-owner 2005 Ford GT with a mere 2,047 miles on the odometer.
