Mecum’s Dallas 2022 classic and collector car auction set a new record, supporting the claim that everything is bigger in Texas. The auction took place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

Mecum Reports they had “1,191 vehicles hammered sold in just four days, Sept. 7-10, for an 84% sell-through rate and more than $55.2 million in sales, which amounted to a 50% increase over the auction’s earlier record total of $36.8 million.”

“Top-selling vehicles in Dallas were led by a trio of Ford GTs, including a highly coveted 2006 Heritage Edition (Lot F85.1) with just one owner and 420 miles that sold for $704,000, a 2005 (Lot S102) with 2,945 miles that brought $467,500 and a 2006 model (Lot F88) with 513 miles that reached $434,500. The ’06 GT was offered from the auction-headlining Mile High Collection, which achieved more than $3.5 million in total sales as 100% of its 26 vehicles were sold.”
