Mecum Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction has announced that they will make their return to Dallas, Texas and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center this September, from the 7th – 10th. They’re pulling out all the stops with an estimated 1,500 American muscle cars, Corvettes, classics, trucks, exotics, Hot Rods, customs and more expected to roll across the block.
It was an easy decision for Mecum to return to Dallas after their success in 2021 where they achieved 86% sell through on more than 1,100 consignments for a sales total of $36.8 million. They will attempt to eclipse that sales record with a new standard for the number of consignments to be offered at the Dallas 2022 auction.
The main attraction of Dallas 2022 is set to be the Mile High Collection. It ‘s offering lots at no reserve and includes a variety of modern, low mileage muscle cars. This includes a one owner Ford GT Heritage Edition (Lot F85.1) with a mere 420 miles, a 2006 Ford GT (Lot F88) that features a Tungsten Grey exterior with white stripes, all four available options and only 513 miles and a 2007 Ford Shelby GT-H Convertible (Lot F84). This is CSM No. 07H494 with the Hertz badging, a 4.6L V8, 5 speed manual transmission and 4,176 miles.
If you are a classic Ford fan, then the Butler Estate Collection is for you. With nearly 230 lots of mostly antique Fords, this collection has been amassed over the last 20 years with Mr. Butler’s favorites being the 1933 and ’34 3-window coupes. The collection features over 23 examples of the model, this includes a steel body 1934 Ford 3-Window Coupe (Lot F10) with a 221 CI flathead V8, a 1934 Ford Deluxe 3-Window Coupe (Lot T5) and a 1933 Ford 3-Window Coupe Hot Rod (Lot T63) with a 239 CI 59AB flathead V8. Some of the other lots in the collection include a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible Coupe (Lot F38) that was one of 640 convertibles made in 1939, a black-over-black 1932 Ford Hi-Boy Roadster (Lot S19) and a 1950 Mercury Custom (Lot S35) that is finished in a gorgeous bright red with custom silver scallop paint work.
This auction is more than just Fords and classics though, there are some epic cars crossing the Dallas block. Some of these include a one owner 1969 Dodge Daytona (Lot S148), one of 503 Dodge Daytonas produced in 1969, a pair of 1969 Shelby GT500 Fastbacks with the 428 Cobra Jet V8’s – one a rare restored Canadian import (Lot F137) in Royal Maroon with white GT500 stripes and the other is Candy Apple Red with gold striping. For the Corvette enthusiasts, two complementary Corvette coupes will see the block and this is a really cool set. One is a 2022 model (Lot F75) with the Z51 Performance Package and only 222 miles and the other is a 1967 model (Lot F213) that boasts an off frame restoration and is presented in Marina Blue with a numbers matching 327/300 HP V8.
