The Mecum Portland 2017 auction was held June 16-17 at the Portland Expo Center in Oregon, resulting in $7.9 million in total sales. Mecum’s second annual Portland auction offered 461 classic and collector cars over two days.
The top result at the Mecum Portland 2017 auction went to the 1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro (Lot S125) that brought $395,000. The well-documented, four-speed Yenko certainly stole the show in its blue-on-black color combination and award-winning condition. It was followed by a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 (Lot S130) that demanded a high bid of $125,000 and a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (Lot S115) that made $110,000. While Plymouths and Chevrolets dominated the top 10, a Hemi-equipped Desoto Fireflite Convertible (Lot S134) also made the list coming in at $68,000.
