The world’s largest collector-car auction company will produce its first-ever Las Vegas auction Thursday through Saturday at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
An estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, hot rods and more from about 20 surrounding states and Canada will cross the auction block.
Among the main attractions consigned for Mecum Las Vegas 2017 is a well-documented 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra Roadster that retains its original aluminum body, red seat covers and 6-inch chrome wire wheels and remains one of the most original automatic-equipped Cobras in existence.
Another headliner is a 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster that is documented with a copy of the original build sheet confirming its matching-numbers chassis, body, engine, four-speed transmission and differential.
Also included among the main attractions is a well-documented two-owner 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird that stands as one of the most original and highly optioned Hemi Superbirds known to exist.
“The quality of cars that our consignment team has assembled for our first collector-car event in Las Vegas is extremely impressive, and I highly encourage everyone to go to Mecum.com to preview the incredible lineup for themselves,” said Sam Murtaugh, Mecum’s vice president of marketing and presentation. “While we are certainly no strangers to the city of Las Vegas, we are thrilled to be bringing a regularly scheduled Mecum collector-car experience to town this November.”
Several private collections will round out the quality consignments in Las Vegas with collector Les Quam bringing 11 highly desirable vehicles including a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, five Vipers and a ’68 Yenko Camaro.
Barry Walston also will bring a selection of vehicles with six of his finest 1930s Fords and more to be offered at no reserve.
