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!

TOP-10

 

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!

1957

 

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.

51

 

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.

1990

 

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!

Sunday Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale: Cars To Watch

The final day at Barrett-Jackson! Millions of dollars of cars have rolled across the block but there is still at least ten more out there worth watching for! Check ’em out!

 

TOP-10

1964 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1551

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
64vette
We’ve saw our share of Corvette’s go across the block this week, from mild to wild to all original NCRS cars. This 64 will be one of the bidders last chances to get a nice original car. I’m curious to watch it because 1964 is usually the year no one wants because its not a “split-window” but it doesn’t have the better features of the 1965. But if someone wants a vette and have been sitting on there money all weekend they might get desperate and pay for this one.

2003 Harley-Davidson Softail Duece
Lot Number 1518

harley
Pointless? Yes, but it would still be cool to have in your garage. “Yeah, that’s my Harley, its still in the box.”

1967 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1569

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
67
At first glance this looks just like any other 1967 Vette, but its the transmission that makes this one special. Its a 3-speed instead of a 4-speed or automatic. I’ve saw a few of these cars pop up over the years but they are pretty dang rare.

1931 Ford Model A
Lot Number 1525

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
31
This car was built by Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas so it has to be on the watch list!

1961 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1610

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
61
This car caught my attention because it is a nice mix of “resto-mod” and original. It’s modded slightly with just a nice mildy built engine, wheels that are nice but not over the top, and just a few other minor mods. Nothing is done too extreme that this car couldn’t be put back to 100% stock which may appeal to some of the purist that want a nice driver, but don’t like the idea of totally reworking a car to the point that nothing on it is stock anymore.

1967 Chevrolet C10
Lot Number 1549.1

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
67c10
Another really nice clean C10 truck. This one has a crate big block in it with a late model transmission, should be a great cruiser!

1965 Daytona Coupe
Lot Number 1574

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
daytona
You can keep your Shelby Cobra’s, I want a Daytona Coupe!! One of the coolest cars of all time!

1974 GMC Holmes 1-Ton Wrecker
Lot Number 1573

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
wrecker
256 actual miles on this pretty much brand new truck! I could see this one going either way price wise, a steal on a new truck for someone, or an over priced worthless collectable!

1959 Oldsmobile 98
Lot Number 1604

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
olds
I think the picture speaks for itself! This Olds is a work of art!

2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible
Lot Number 3018

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
zl1
The first ZL1 Convertible ever built. All proceeds will benefit the Achilles International Charity so this one should fetch some big numbers!
