Dana Mecum and Company never fail to put on a great auction. This year’s Monterey event was no exception, as we watched a wide variety of classics and exotics cross the block. It took place on the Del Monte Golf Course, with almost $40,000,000 in sales. Starting with vintage bikes, a pair of Crocker small-tanks was composed of a 1936 that sold for $825,000, and a restored 1937 for $715,000.

Carroll Shelby kept the last production small-block Cobra for himself, so the last one built to order was chassis CSX2588. It hammered at a whopping $1.05 Million. Next up was a low-mileage 2015 Porsche 918 Spider Weissach for $1.43 Million. After that, it was a Ferrari Frenzy. Only 200 examples of the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTS were built, and Lot F122 went for $1.1. Next was a 2014 LaFerrari for $2.64, and the star of the show was a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 that caused a commotion. After the dust settled from a fierce bidding war, it sold for $2.75!

The fast-pace is great fun to see in person, so we can barely wait for Kissimmee 2020. The star of that event will be the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Hero Car driven by Steve McQueen in Bullitt.
