Mecum grosses $12million at St Charles


Mecum's annual showpiece auction at St Charles, Illinois, boasted a record number of lots and grossed an enormous $12million even before buyer's premiums were added.

The huge total came from an astonishing 1000 cars that crossed the block at the Pheasant Run Resort from 15-18 September, even though the sale rate was a less than amazing 55%.

Top seller was a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback that sold for $290,000, more than $100,000 ahead of the bet best lots, a pair of Yenko Chevys.

According to Mecum, the top 10 results were:

$290,000 – 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (Lot S109)
