(August 8, 2022) Mecum Auctions has spent the vast majority of 2022 breaking and setting new auction records with unprecedented success beginning with the highest grossing collector car auction ever held in Kissimmee, Fla., this past January. The company’s most recent auction in Harrisburg, Pa., held July 27-30, followed the year’s record-setting trend with a total of $40 million in overall sales for a nearly 30% increase over the 2019 Harrisburg record of $31 million.

With massive and enthusiastic crowds present for all four days of the auction event, 863 vehicles hammered sold for an 81% sell-through rate.
