Early Entries at 2016 Mecum Kissimmee

The 2016 Mecum Kissimmee auction will be staged January 15-24 at the 60-acre Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida. Next year’s sale will feature 3,000 collector cars and more than 1,000 Road Art items over 10 days of auction.

Mecum’s annual Kissimmee sale has been recognized as the largest collector car and Road Art auction in the world for multiple years running and is well on its way to owning that title again. Mecum reports the 2016 Kissimmee consignments already include 1,500 vehicles, after only accepting entries for 30 days.

“With early consignments including some of the rarest, and easily the most desirable classic American muscle cars ever to roll off the assembly line—and more coming through the pipeline each day—this auction will be one for the record books,” said Dana Mecum, President and Founder of Mecum Auctions. “The opportunity to witness these monumental million-dollar muscle car collections, the likes of which the world has never seen, as they all converge in one place, at one time … it’s unprecedented. These are collections that include Hemi Cudas and Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles, Yenko Supercars, Boss Mustangs, Shelbys and more.”

In addition to the collections of muscle cars at Kissimmee 2016, Mecum Auctions will also offer others such as a 24 Hours of Daytona-winning Porsche 962, several Ferraris, including a 330 GTC, a Daytona GTB/4 and a Dino 246 GTS as well as numerous Corvettes.

Beyond the 3,000 cars on offer, the assemblage of Road Art being amassed features large collections including an assortment of original dealership neon signs and a collection of more than 400 original, unrestored and never touched-up gas and oil porcelains, pump plates and globes.
