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:

Well Done: ’57 Chevy

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

We like the iconic ’57 Chevrolet Bel Air. And by iconic we mean when you think of drive-in hamburger joints or cruising down Woodward Avenue, you can picture a ’57 in your head. We had a superb original black, ’57 a few weeks ago. It had original paint and interior and was drop dead wonderful. We came across this one on Craigslist and although it is on the other end of the “original ” spectrum, we thought it was kind of neat. The Bel Air was originally purchased in Tucson and it appears to have been baked in the sun a little too long. Read More


The Phantom: ’68 Chevy Corvair Monza

Chevrolet Corvair Monza

The Corvair actually turned out to be a decent car. Granted, its shaky start is legend and it made Ralph Nader, well, Ralph Nader. When you think about it, GM engineers had the chops to get the Corvair right. Look what they did with the Corvette. Corvair Read More
