Mecum Houston: Thursday Cars To Watch

Its Mecum Auction time again! This auction takes Mecum to The Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Here are our cars to watch for Day 1, Thursday!



Lot T127: 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28

My favorite body style of all the Camaro’s, these late second generation cars have came on strong over the last few years. This is a very nice example of one with the Z28 package and the rare 4-speed.



Lot T126: 1964 AMC Rambler American Convertible

This is a rare piece for sure, but rare isn’t always desirable. Very interested to see how big or little money this one goes for. Check out the rare “twin stick” overdrive set up on it!



Lot T191: 1972 Chevy C10 Truck

What an awesome truck, a mix of new technology with the A/C and LED tail lights but a truck that still keeps the classic look.



Lot T209: 1957 Chevy Wagon 150

I love a 1957 Chevy 150, I love the basic look, a wagon is even better! Check this one out!



Lot T266: 1966 Dodge Charger

The ugly duckling so to speak of the Dodge Chargers. It caught my eye because we once had a 1966 Charger, only ours had the 426 Hemi in it.



Lot T270: 1951 Ford Custom Sedan

It’s hard to beat the look of a 1951 Ford. This one is a little too stock for my liking but a nice car non the less.



Lot T289: 1990 Chevy Corvette ZR1

“King Of The Hill”, this was my dream Corvette growing up. This is a very, very nice example of a well kept ZR1.



Lot T302: 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R

One of my bucket list cars, one of two hundred and fifty ever made.



Lot T333: 1990 Chevy Silverado Truck

This is an interesting item, an old school tow rig. I really like the late model wheels, but the long bed kinda kills it too. Still a nice truck though, just not sure if its collectible or with today’s modern diesel’s usable enough to bring any kind of decent price.



Lot T322: 1996 Chevy Grand Sport Corvette

I read an article at the begging of the year that stated the 1996 Grand Sport was one of the most collectible Corvette’s of all time. Personally I just don’t see it. Maybe this one will fetch big money and prove me wrong!

Ebay Find Of The Week: 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe

This weeks Ebay find is a nice little 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. But this isn’t your standard coupe, this one is a little different. It still has the factory six cylinder in it and an working ac system(appears to be aftermarket of some nature). I really like how original and nice this car is and that its owners over the years have resisted the temptation to throw a V8 in it.

Here is the article from the ad.

Take Note America . . .

Up for auction with a low reserve is a very nice 1966 Mustang Coupe. This first generation Pony is super cool inside and out. She is an R code San Jose built Mustang and comes equipped with her 200 straight six motor and has a complete and working air-conditioning system that blows cold. Her exterior is a stunning Tuxedo Black with a white Mustang stripe on the bottom and beautiful matching pinstripes down the sides. The interior is a lovely buckskin tan with the seats near mint and matching carpet that looks brand new. Her headliner and dash are in great shape and she comes with seat belts front and back. A Mustang cassette deck and simulated wood instrument cluster gives this Pony a razor sharp look that will impress anyone.

This Mustang starts right up first time every time and can be driven anywhere on a daily basis. She comes from a private collector out of Phoenix who only owns Mustangs. She is riding on stock steel rims and has a full set of Ford simulated spoke hubcaps with the three prong spinner all around and good whitewall tires on all four wheels. Under her hood everything is clean and a few items that were replaced include new fuel pump, new alternator, new radiator, new battery and her carb was also rebuilt. She has a vintage wooden steering wheel that feels great and her chrome bumpers shine like new including her working light bar up front. All the glass is in excellent condition and her window tint looks great on this Mustang.

Everyone deserves a first generation coupe and this one here with working A/C is a charmer. If you have any questions at all simply call or email because the odds of her going all the way to the end of the auction is pretty low indeed. Her miles are listed as original and they are believed to be accurate as well her original drive train. She has her correct VIN on her front driver’s side fender and comes with a matching title that has no issues. She is ready to go so be on your toes because this Mustang won’t last that long on the eBay online auction block. Inspections are welcomed and worldwide shipping can easily be arranged anywhere necessary for a modest price. Thank you and good luck and don’t forget to bid early and often if you like what you see.
