Mecum Auctions will hold its expanded, five-day Kissimmee Auction 2011 on January 26-30 at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida.
“The Kissimmee Auction is Mecum’s fastest growing event as witnessed by the huge success of last year’s event, which boasted a very high sell-through rate, more than 4,000 registered bidders and total sales over $25 million,” said President Dana Mecum. “We already see the momentum building for an even more impressive turn out at this year’s event, and it’s all taking place east of the Mississippi – it’s where the cars are.”
Highlights of the Mecum Kissimmee Auction 2011 include a pair of drag racers, the 1963 Shelby Cobra DragonSnake and the Sox & Martin 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Pro Stock, a 1983 March 83C Indy Car driven by Bobby Rahal and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, among others. These vehicles join a list of 1,750 that will cross the block at Kissimmee, which has expanded to five days and become the industry’s largest classic car auction held in January.
Also featured at Mecum Kissimmee Auction 2011 are a variety of first and second generation Corvettes, a 1953 Corvette Roadster, a ’68 L88 Convertible and a ’69 L89 427/435 HP Coupe – many of which are offered at no reserve.
“Our annual Kissimmee event started as an all Corvette sale 11 years ago and remains a natural location for collectors to buy and sell Corvettes,” said President Dana Mecum.
Mecum’s Kissimmee Auction takes place on January 26-30, 2011 at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida with tickets available at the door for $15. The auction will broadcast with four days of live national TV coverage on “Mecum Auto Auction: Muscle Cars & More” on Discovery Communications’ HD Theater.
