Like a Boss: What vehicle went for the most at Mecum Auctions?

Collector car auction at farm show complex nets nearly $17M in sales

It pays to be the Boss, at least at a Mecum Auctions event.

A 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback led the way over the weekend with a $220,000 sale price at the Mecum Auctions event in Harrisburg. Ford and Chevrolet were the dominant brands, in terms of sale price.

Wisconsin-based Mecum, the world leader in live classic and collector car auctions, posted $16.7 million in sales at the three-day event at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. 

Mecum also offers a post-auction option for consignments where bids didn’t reach the lowest amount the seller would accept. That usually adds about 10 percent more to event sales, which could push Mecum’s total closer to $20 million.

Harrisburg is one of the company’s top events nationwide. It’s the only auction Mecum holds in the Northeast.
