Pair Of Mustangs Take Top Spots At Mecum Auction

If car auctions don’t interest you, they should. For starters, they’re a great time to attend even if your pockets are as shallow as mine. Secondly, it’s interesting seeing what the people are into and which way the market maybe headed. Lastly, its a great place to see examples of different styles all under the same roof. This past weekend’s top two selling Ford Mustangs seemed to incapsulate both the latter two as they brought in a combined $418,000.

The top-seller of the two was a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback. The KK code fastback was one of only 850 made in 1969 and has since undergone a complete restoration taking two years to finish. It features a Boss 429cu.-in. engine producing 375hp with a 4-speed transmission. Refinished in the original Candy Apple Red this classic Mustang will turn the heads of just about anyone it passes and should for its $275,000 price tag.

In second is another ’69 Mustang, but this one not restored. The owner’s took another approach and went with the ever popular resto mod when once again making this Stang road ready. Dyno’d to 636hp this Mustang is powered by a 427cu.-in. Shafiroff Racing HHR UltraStreet engine paired with a Tremec 6-speed transmission. Other upgrades consist of a who’s who of major players from RideTech suspension parts, to Wilwood breaks and Budnik wheels and steering wheel to match. Additionally, Dakota Digital gauges Ididit Touch system bring all the modern trappings to the car’s interior. Selling for $143,000 it’s clear the resto mod market isn’t cooling off and this car will undoubtedly provide years of fun for the new owner. We only hope he’s able to keep the license plate.
