0 Percent Sell-Through Rate with 934 Vehicles Offered
WALWORTH, Wis. – April 14, 2015 – The Mecum Houston 2015 auction held this past weekend was an enormous success with 645 vehicles sold of the total 934 offered for a pronounced 70-percent sell-through rate and $25,285,163 in total sales.
With the top 10 sales in Houston populated by a healthy mix of pre-war classics, muscle cars from the Golden Era, as well as representations from several other prominent categories, the cars speak for themselves: the market is thriving and Mecum has them all. With the near-1,000-car lineup, Mecum’s annual Houston auction continues to keep the pulse of the collector-car market and serves as an excellent representation of today’s healthy supply and demand among even the widest array of enthusiasts.
Top sales included a half-million-dollar modified Duesenberg (Lot S92.1) and a $480,000 Plymouth Hemi Superbird (Lot S105). In addition to those, a 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition (Lot S115.1) with just 13 miles on the odometer hammered at $475,000 and a 1906 Packard S Touring (Lot S108.1), one of just three known to exist, brought $300,000. Two 1969 Boss 429 Fastbacks (Lots S93 and S138) also gaveled in the top 10 selling for $262,500 and $200,000, respectively, and a highly optioned 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster (Lot S102) with just 20,790 miles came in at a strong $225,000.
