LOUISVILLE, Ky. (September 18, 2019) – The world’s largest collector car auction company, Mecum Auctions, will roll into the Kentucky Exposition Center Sept. 20-21 with an estimated 600 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, hot rods, resto mods and more - all available to accepts bids.
Among the most anticipated lots to be offered at the Louisville auction are two Z28 Camaros; the first is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (Lot S88) with a matching-numbers M21 4-speed manual transmission that accompanies its DZ-suffix 302/290 HP engine. The car’s factory black paint makes it one of the just 5% of Camaros finished as such in 1969. The other Z28 (Lot S105) hails from 1973 and boasts a red exterior with black racing stripes that gleam with a fresh shine following a recent comprehensive restoration that included its 454 CI V-8 engine with 4-barrel carburetor and performance exhaust.
Saturday will feature the no-reserve collection offering of nearly a dozen cars from enthusiast Emerson Russell, a selection that ranges from a 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe Street Rod (Lot S160) to a 1984 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (Lot S151). Other auction highlights include a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible (Lot S134), a 1973 DeTomaso Pantera (Lot S135), a 1941 Mercury Eight Club Convertible (Lot F145) and a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback (Lot S120), to name a few.
