Mecum's Kansas City Spring Auction Reaches $9.6 Million in Sales  April 25-27 Auction Draws Large Crowd and Diverse Selection to Downtown K.C.

Magnificent and serene Kansas City, Mo., turns into a car collector's paradise twice a year when Mecum Auctions comes to town. Last weekend, April 25-27, the Kansas City Convention Center was transformed into that dream location with 735 cars spread across the gleaming floor of beautiful Bartle Hall. With 446 cars selling over the three-day period for a 61 percent sell-through rate, the enduring auction brought a strong $9.6 million total.

The top sale at the Kansas City auction was a Historic Mount Vernon, N.Y., Ahrens-Fox BT piston pumper fire truck (Lot S201), which hammered at $125,000. The fully restored truck may be the finest example remaining of the small group of nine that were manufactured. The second top spot on the top ten list was nabbed by a bold, Tropical Turquoise 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible that was the subject of a frame-off restoration and features a continental kit with a 348 CI Turbo-Thrust V-8 power plant. The car, which crossed the block as Lot S116, sold for a healthy $112,500.

The complete top 10 sales for Mecum's spring Kansas City auction include (all sales reflect hammer prices):
