Mecum's Inaugural Las Vegas Collector-Car Auction Reaches $22 Million  Top-Selling 1968 Yenko Camaros Make Strong Statement on Behalf of Muscle Cars

WALWORTH, Wis. – Nov. 21, 2017 – Mecum Auctions' first time holding a collector-car auction in Las Vegas was an undeniable success as 557 vehicles changed hands in just three auction days, Nov. 16-18, and total auction sales soared to $22 million. Offering collector cars in the City of Lights was long on Mecum's to-do list, and the warm reception from the great city along with the auction's subsequent strong sales results verified the veracity of the auction house's predicted success.

Bidder and spectator turnout were excellent, and the healthy hammer prices achieved among the top 10 sales and beyond served as a testament to that interest. Two 1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaros topped all sales in Vegas with the first (Lot S73), from the Les Quam Collection, selling for an incredible $600,000. Fewer than 20 of the original 64 1968 Yenko Camaros prepared by Yenko Chevrolet are known to exist today, and this highly awarded Fathom Blue example boasts a place among them. The other Yenko (Lot S268), an RS/SS version, is one of just 11 Rally Sport Yenko Camaros built, and presenting fresh from a full restoration, the Matador Red Camaro demanded a $450,000 sale price. Two 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastbacks (Lots F141 and S176) also landed among top sales as each gaveled for $200,000, and a one-owner, 514-mile 2006 Ford GT (Lot S74) claimed the third highest sale price at $290,000.

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