$31 Million at Mecum Harrisburg 2019 marks 30% one-year growth in overall sales


WALWORTH, Wis. – Aug. 7, 2019 – Mecum’s recent auction in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, held July 31-Aug. 3 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex, saw overall sales totals exceed $31.1 million as more than 70% of all 1,301 offered vehicles hammered sold. The solid lineup of rare and desirable collector cars helped propel Harrisburg 2019 sales to a more than $7 million increase over 2018 for an astonishing 30% one-year growth in revenue.

Populated almost entirely by vehicles from the headlining Todd Werner Collection of vintage race cars, the top 10 sellers list includes a heavy concentration of iron from both Plymouth and Dodge. The highest-selling car proved to be the 1970 AHRA GT1 World Championship-winning 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda in its distinctive red, white and blue Sox & Martin livery (Lot S102), which sold for $429,000. The close runner-up was the 1971 NASCAR Grand National Championship Winner, the 1971 Plymouth Road Runner Richard Petty NASCAR (Lot S100), which collected a total of $412,500.

More than a dozen private collections were offered in Harrisburg, and all garnered lots of attention with sales to match. The Todd Werner Collection saw a full 95% of the 43-car collection hammer sold in Harrisburg, while The Skook Collection, The Jerry Lyndon Corvette Collection, The Champaign Auto Collection and the Special Early Bird Offering all achieved 100% sell-through rates and combined sales totals in the millions.

Highlighted by their six-figure sales and positions in the top 10, other significant vehicles to note include the modern, supercharged 2005 Ford GT (Lot S75.1) that brought $324,500 and a SAAC Concours Division-winning 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback (Lot S93) that achieved a $275,000 sale.

Road Art offerings in Harrisburg were nearly as plentiful as the cars, and total sales of the more than 1,000 available items reached nearly $1.5 million. The Road Art segment sales were topped by a rare and desirable Wayne 491-F Greek Roman Column 5-gallon gas pump (Lot K53) restored in Polly Gas livery that sold for $29,500, followed closely by an 11-foot 1940s or ‘50s Ford Dealership double-sided porcelain sign (Lot K40) that brought $28,320.
