Top Ten Corvette Sales at Mecum's Kissimmee 2016 Auction


We’ve attending Mecum’s annual Kissimmee auction for over 15 years now, from its humble beginnings as part of the NCRS Winter Regional in Old Town to now being a 10-day, 3000+ car extravaganza held on the grounds of Osceola Heritage Park, and we have to say the 2016 auction was one of the best we’ve ever seen.

Mecum once again assembled a great collection of Corvettes for the auction. With 244 Corvettes on the ground, there was something for everyone. First time buyers to seasoned collectors, Mecum’s Kissimmee auction had it covered.

We reached out to the Corvette auction experts at Vette-N-Vestments regarding the sale. According to Marshall Fancher, 169 of the 244 Corvettes offered were sold for a total of $10,079.00 and a sell through rate of 69%.

1968 L88 Corvette


There were several significant Corvettes failed to sell. The highest bid/no sale was the 1968 L88 Corvette Coupe which topped out at $550,000. Next were two midyear tankers, the first was the 1964 Tanker that was bidded to $400,000 while an Ermine White 1964 Fuelie Tanker was bid to $275,000.

Before we get to the list of top sales, Mecum can be a bargain hunter’s dream or a fixer-upper’s paradise. We found 24 Corvettes that were sold for $10,000 or less. One of the cheapest vettes in the auction was a very clean 1986 Corvette which sold for $5,500 while a 1996 Collector’s Edition with an LT4/330 hp V8 sold for $7,000.
