Auction Results Part 2: Mecum sells!
Some great and some not so great cars sold yesterday. Prices are all over the map probably for reasons unknown to us here but evident to those who inspected the car before bidding. For example, we featured 2 almost identical Mercedes-Benz 190Sls. One sold at $90,000 with what is said to be original interior that is clearly not. Another not so great example sold at a more appropriate $61,000. Then there is a magnificent Mercedes-Benz 600 Short Wheelbase that was a No Sale at $55,000. An MGA that looked to be tidy was a No Sale at $19,000 and a Mercedes 280SL that was just okay sold for $60,000. Go figure. But that is what an auction is about. All you need are 2 bidders wanting the same car on the same day and silly things can happen. On the other hand, timing might be bad for some cars resulting in low prices or no sales. Not rocket science. Click on each for a full size image:
