Four Vintage Cars Fetch Top Dollar In Las Vegas

The adage goes “age before beauty,” but this past weekend at Mecum Las Vegas you saw age AND beauty fetch top dollar. In all the top 4 cars sold had an average age of just under 80-years-old and sold for an average price of $571,313.

Stealing the show was the only car to break the million dollar mark, a 1930 Bugatti Type 46 Faux Cabriolet. In fact, the $1,012,000 it fetched was nearly a quarter-million more than the second place 1930 Duesenberg Model J Dual Cowl Phaeton which brought in $770,000. From there the drop off was even more substantial, but thanks to the high bar set we were still seeing a pretty penny change hands.

A 1934 Packard 1104 Super 8 Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton gaveled just over the quarter-million mark at $258,500 while just below it a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300D Cabriolet took in $244,750. Rounding out the top five, for good measure, was a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda which sold for $220,000. If you’re heading off to an elderly relative or friend’s house this Thanksgiving maybe sneak a peak in their garage because there is no telling what past treasure might be revealed.
