Mecum Auction Breaks Records With Cars, Celebrities, Guitars and Over $100 Million in Sales at Osceola Heritage Park.

KISSIMMEE, Fl. – Feb. 5, 2020 – Mecum Kissimmee 2020 collector car auction, held Jan. 2-12, saw overall sales skyrocket to $105.1 million with 2,140 vehicles changing hands throughout the 11-day auction. While attendance throughout the duration of the event was exceptional with another marked increase over last year, the Silver Spurs Arena at Osceola Heritage Park was filled to absolute capacity as the auction-headlining Bullitt Mustang of movie fame approached the block for its turn under the gavel. Amidst a sea of cell phones held high in the air to capture the inevitable historic moment, a lengthy bidder battle from all sides of the floor ensued, and the gavel finally dropped with the car reaching a total sale price of $3.74 million, crowning the Bullitt as the most valuable Ford Mustang in history.

Mecum’s newest division, Guitar Search by Domino, welcomed some amazingly unique and desirable instruments and several celebrity musicians to Osceola Heritage Park. 163 guitars were sold for a total of $779,489. The top-most seller, a 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard previously owned by Rush’s Geddy Lee, was purchased by renowned guitar collector and lead musician of Cheap Trick, Rick Nielsen. In typical showman fashion, Nielsen took to the Mecum stage and ripped off a few riffs with his new purchase driving the crowd wild. [Complete top 10 sales list below.]
