This afternoon Mecum Auctions announced that they will be returning once again to Osceola Heritage Park. Inspired by the continued success of The World’s Largest Collector Car Auction, held each January at Osceola Heritage Park, the Summer Special which will take place July 6th – 9th.
The Summer Special is set to have an estimated 1,500 American muscle cars, Corvettes, classic, exotics, trucks, Hot Rods, customs and more with a live broadcast of the event to be shown on MotorTrendTV and MotorTrend+.
When Mecum was at Osceola in January that auction achieved a world record $234 million in sales and a world record of more than 4,000 lots crossing the block. The annual auction also became the first ever collector car auction to eclipse the $200 million mark in sales for consecutive years. This pattern of undeniable success at the Florida auction location has spurred on the continued staging of the summer event, which is now in its fourth year.
This auction is of course full of fantastic lots, but some of the featured lots are not to be missed. This includes a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible (Lot S100) which features a red exterior, white convertible top, two-tone red and silver interior and is powered by a 283?245 HP V-8 engine with an automatic transmission. And a 1975 BMW 2002 (Lot F35) with an M10 2.0L engine, a 5 speed manual transmission and a selection of racing equipment including a roll bar, strut brace, MOMO race seats and the employment of the race specific backseat delete option.
Other highlights, not to be missed, include a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T (Lot F114) with a numbers matching 440 CI V-8 engine with a 727 automatic transmission. It has been refinished in the factory color Hemi Orange (Code EV2) and features a mostly original black interior. And a 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible (Lot F114.1) that has been updated with a 4.6L V-8 engine, automatic transmission and a coilover front suspension with shock tower delete.
If you’re more into collections than singular lots, The Mitchell Estate Collection is for you. This collection encompasses more than 100 years of automotive history among it’s 30 lots, all of which will be offered at no reserve. There are mostly prewar roadsters from the Ford plant in this collection, but it also includes a pair of 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code Convertibles (Lots S14 and S14.1), as well as a wide range of vintages spanning from a 1909 Buick Runabout (Lot S20) to a 2020 Tesla Model S (Lot S16.1) with only 421 miles.
