Mecum's Collector-Car Auction In Portland Achieves $7.9 Million  Second-annual event topped by the sale of a 1968 Yenko Camaro

WALWORTH, Wis. – June 21, 2017
– Mecum Auctions was in Portland this past weekend with an impressive lineup of 461 classic and collector cars. The two-day auction at the Portland Expo Center achieved $7.9 million in overall sales totals topped by a 1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro (Lot S125) that brought $395,000.

The well-documented, four-speed Yenko certainly stole the show in its intense blue-on-black color combination and award-winning condition, but a rare 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 (Lot S130) was another auction favorite and demanded a high bid of $125,000. Plymouths and Chevrolets dominated the top 10, but a beautiful Hemi-equipped Desoto Fireflite convertible (Lot S134) also made the list coming in at $68,000.

The complete top 10 sales at the Portland 2017 auction include (individual prices do not include buyer's premiums):
