Following a record $40 million in sales at Mecum Harrisburg 2022, Mecum Auctions will return to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, this July 26-29 with an estimated 1,200 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, trucks, exotics, Hot Rods, customs and more to cross the auction block with live coverage by MotorTrendTV and MotorTrend+. Main attraction offerings include a fuel-injected 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (Lot S104) and a 4-speed 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback (Lot F105).
Among featured private collections to be offered in Harrisburg is The American Muscle Car Collection of 28 lots, which includes a broad selection depicting the collection’s namesake, plus outliers like a 1980 Toyota FJ-40 Land Cruiser (Lot T142) that has just 131 miles on the odometer and is powered by a 4.2L inline 6-cylinder engine with a 4-speed manual transmission and a restored German-built, 21-window 1965 Volkswagen Type II Samba (Lot F200) with a 1600cc/40 HP 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission. The muscle cars in the collection include a comprehensively frame-off nut-and-bolt restored 1970 Pontiac GTO Convertible (Lot F217) with a matching-numbers 455/360 HP V-8 engine and a 1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback (Lot S81) with a 428/355 HP Cobra Jet V-8 engine and 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission.
From the still-growing offering of The Klairmont Kollection of Chicago will be at least a dozen consignments to be offered at no reserve, including a 1906 Tourist Model K Touring (Lot F196) that was previously part of the Frankel collection and received a ground-up restoration that was completed in 2012. It’s presented with a two-tone white and blue exterior with a white interior and is powered by a 196 CI horizontally opposed 2-cylinder engine. Another of the prewar vehicles from the collection is a 1930 Chrysler Series 70 Roadster (Lot F197) that has a two-tone yellow and green exterior paint treatment with a beige manual folding top, 268 CI inline 6-cylinder engine and 3-speed manual transmission.
