Stop number two of the season for Mecum Auctions is their upcoming Kansas City sale, scheduled for this weekend at the Kansas City Convention Center – Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Missouri. A quick tour of their catalog online resulted in a few interesting lots, including the 1969 Boss 302 Mustang above. One of 194 assembled in Wimbledon White, according to the consignor-provided Marti Report, it was recently subjected to a complete rotisserie restoration and retains its original 3.91:1 rear differential/gear, red standard interior and a non-matching numbers ’69 block with ’70 cylinder heads.
The “something for everyone” mantra exists throughout the catalog. In no particular order (photos in the gallery below), we also spotted a 1934 Plymouth four-door sedan with a form-fit trunk, rear mounted spare, dual horns and a correct six-cylinder engine. Another Mopar from the same model year, this 1934 Dodge Model KC half-ton pickup, has been bestowed with numerous AACA awards. For Dan: a 1971 AMC Javelin equipped with the Go Pack, Twin Grip differential, 360-cu.in. engine, front discs and factory air. It also sports a Flowmaster exhaust and aftermarket wheels. For the vintage race enthusiasts, there’s a 1969 Corvette funny car that, according to the consignor, has been sitting in a barn for the last 40 years and was originally Jim Shue’s “Hell Fire” Corvette. Prefer a British drop-top? How about a “limited edition” 1980 MGB showing just 39,000 miles with only two previous owners – offered at no reserve, no less? And then there’s perhaps one of the more interesting offerings: a 1960 Ford Thunderbird “pilot model” with a showcar conditioning tag in the door jamb (it’s the only photo available at the time we wrote this entry), 430-cu.in. engine and reported “barn find” status.
Plenty more can be found on Mecum’s web-based catalog.
