Top 5 Combine At Auction For Over $1.5 Million

Classics dominated this past weekend’s Mecum Harrisburg, PA auction with only a single car in the top 10 being produced later than 1971. The outlier is, not surprisingly, a Ford GT in the number three spot with a sale price of $324,500. That total combined with the rest of the the top 5 combined for an average sale price of $339,900 en route to a $1,699,500 total.

Coming in at number five on the list is a 1969 Yenko Chevrolet Camaro, 1 of 29 as optioned, commanding a sale price of $258,500. Just ahead of the ‘Maro is one of its big 3 brethren, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback. Highly original and award winning, this Shelby GT500 sold for $250,000. In the third spot is the GT with only 60 miles on the odometer.

In a bit of an “upset” at number two is a championship winning Richard Petty 1971 Plymouth Road Runner, which also happens to be the oldest non-GT of the top 10. This piece of racing history won the championship in 1971 and sold to a lucky bidder for $412,500. Claiming the top spot is a another racecar, but this one was built for the drazsrtip. At number one with a sale price of $429,000 is the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Sox & Martin Drag Car. This classic straight-line Cuda was the only “factory-built drag-car Hemi Cuda with a VIN that was produced for the Sox & Martin team.”
