Mecum auctions are an excellent platform to discover classic cars from all decades, makes and models. It is also a great way to see some high-end millionaires’ toys as well as a series of classic cars more suitable for someone on a budget. This year’s Mecum Auction in Louisville, KY, will take place at the Kentucky Exposition Center from September 8th-10th and will feature classic vehicles and road art.

Details On Attending the Mecum Auction in Louisville

Vehicle sales begin Thursday at noon and Friday and Saturday at 10AM. Road art auctions begin at 10:30AM on Thursday and 8:30AM on Friday and Saturday. Admission is $30 for one day and $60 for a three-day pass.

Featured Classic Cars

The star of the auction is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 Convertible. It is only one of 18 known to be in existence. This 454/450HP 4-speed has had a ground-up restoration with a Holley 4-barrel carb, dual exhaust, and a Muncie M-22 Rock Crusher 4-speed transmission. It is Turquoise Metallic with a white convertible soft top.

Another muscle car from the same year to watch is the 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback. This Concours restoration by Randy Roberts has a 429/375HP engine with matching numbers, under 50K original miles, turquoise body and black Corinthian vinyl bucket seats. It is believed to be only one of 95 ever made with this particular color/interior combination.

Rounding out the 1970 trifecta of featured cars is the 1970 Dodge Super Bee. With a 440 CI six-pack engine, 4-speed with pistol grip, plum crazy exterior and black interior, this is a true throwback to the era when muscle cars were king. Best of all, this is a garage queen with under 11,000 original miles on it.
