Huge figures recorded at US auction


Mecum’s massive Dallas Auction achieved more than $31million worth of sales from 5-8 September.

The cars of the Hallbrook collection opened the sale on Wednesday and netted $5.2million alone for the 82 classics.

They included models such as a 1938 Lincoln K Semi-Collapsible Cabriolet ($152,500) and a 1956 Lincoln Premiere convertible, which achieved the same price.

The following three days maintained a sale rate of 70%, with the top price of $285,000 going to a 1967 427cu in Chevrolet Corvette HP convertible (pictured).

It was followed by a 1969 427cu in Yenko Camaro that made $240,000 and another Corvette this time a 427cu in coupe that sold for $200,000.
