David Brown Collection to be sold at Mecum


Around 500 fantastic lots will cross the block from 20-21 July at Mecum’s Des Moines sale at Iowa State Fairgrounds, USA.

Most exciting of all will, we’re told, be the David Brown Collection cars – which are to be offered at no reserve.

They include a 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 (above). A rust-free Californian car, it comes compete with a 428cu in R-code Ram Air V8 engine, a Traction-Lok differential (a limited slip diff to you and me) to help rein it in and an auto gearbox. Inside, there’s tan leather, air-con and powered windows.

The 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT gives us a variation of the same flavour, this time packing a 351cu in Cleveland V8 and a four-speed manual ’box. Again featuring a rust-free body, and fresh from a “complete professional restoration” this Cyclone has an interior trimmed in blue, plus bucket seats.

Meanwhile, fans of earlier cars may be interested in this 1931 Ford Model A ‘Rumble Seat’, which had an engine rebuild four years ago and boasts a LeBonney Barron interior.

As always, it’s a big sale from Mecum – browse the full listings here.
