Mecum’s St. Charles Auction Produces $2.8 Million in Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on October 15, 2007

Mecum’s High Performance Auctions are different than the usual predominately-Corvette affairs we see at Bloomington or down in Kissimmee, Florida at the NCRS Winter Regional. At the St. Charles, Illinois auction during the October 5-7th weekend, just 80 of the 550+ unique muscle and collector cars were Corvettes. Yes, that mix seems to guarantee a wider audience as the larger auction field brings in the special cars and with the special cars comes the guys with the checkbooks that can afford them. Included in the group of Corvettes at the St. Charles auction was a 1953 Corvette, a 1969 L88 and a very unique 1967 Black ‘N Blue L71 427/435 coupe. We detailed the top two Corvette sales from this auction earlier this week, the 1969 L88 Coupe selling for $446,250 and the 1967 L71 Coupe selling for $393,750. unfortunately, the ’53 Corvette was a no-sale with a high bid at $225,000. Total Corvette sales reached $2.8 million and the selling percentage was a solid 61%. Mecum’s slogan is “Nobody Sells More Muscle Than Mecum” and while were not about to enter the debate of whether a Corvette is a muscle car or not, their slogan could in all reality by modified to “Nobody Sells More Fiberglass…” Here is the full list of Corvettes and their sales price or high bids:
