The Mecum Kissimmee 2016 auction takes place from 15 to 24 January at Florida’s Osceola Heritage Park with more than 3,000 collector cars and 1,000 items of Road Art to go under the hammer. The event is recognised as the largest collector car and Road Art auction in the world and will be broadcasted live on NBC Sports Network.
While there will be an incredible array of muscle cars on display like two Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertibles, cars expected to attract most attention are the rare gems like the 24 Hours of Daytona-winning Porsche 962, Ferrari 330 GT, Daytona GTB/4 and a Dino 246 GTS and numerous Chevrolet Corvettes. The Road Art items include a variety of original dealership neon signs and more than 400 original, unrestored gas and oil porcelains, pump plates and globes.
“With early consignments including some of the rarest, and easily the most desirable classic American muscle cars ever to roll off the assembly line—and more coming through the pipeline each day—this auction will be one for the record books,” said Dana Mecum, President and Founder of Mecum Auctions. “The opportunity to witness these monumental million-dollar muscle car collections, the likes of which the world has never seen, as they all converge in one place, at one time … it’s unprecedented. These are collections that include Hemi Cudas and Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles, Yenko Supercars, Boss Mustangs, Shelbys and more.”
