Mecum Auctions returns to Houston with 1,000 cars


1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback

(March 27, 2019) WALWORTH, Wis. — Mecum Auctions will return to Houston’s NRG Center April 4-6 for Mecum Houston 2019 with an estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, Corvettes, classics, exotics, trucks, Hot Rods, Resto Mods and more, as well as more than 130 no-reserve motorcycles.

Among main attraction consignments is a 1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback that is the result of a concours nut-and-bolt restoration. Completed in 2017, the restoration was overseen by two SAAC judges and used mostly NOS and restored original parts.

Wimbledon White with blue rocker striping, CSM No. 0022 features a matching-numbers 289/306 HP V-8 engine, 4-speed transmission and rare 6-point roll bar. Additionally, the consignment was owned by one family from 1973 to 2016.

Headlining several collections consigned to Mecum Houston 2019, the nearly 50 lots from the collection of Guatemalan businessman Mario Sueiras are set to be offered almost entirely at no reserve. Sueiras spent the past 50 years finding, acquiring, restoring and savoring fine autos, and his selection headed to Houston features a wide swath of different collector cars, including 13 microcars.

Equally diverse are the 49 lots consigned from the Pappi’s Garage Collection, all offered at no reserve and ranging from American prewar and classic vehicles, to muscle cars, customs and pickup trucks.

Meanwhile, the “Mur the Blur” Collection offers two-wheeled enthusiasts an opportunity to bid on 134 no-reserve motorcycles, highlighted by a stunning 1968 Triumph Bonneville and a top-shelf 1944 Indian Chief. The collection also features an array of Ducatis, including a 1981 900 SS Track Bike, a 1998 916 Senna and five “Foggy” editions, named after Carl Fogarty, the most successful World Superbike racer of all time.
