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.
