A 1962 Shelby Cobra, serial number CSX2032 (above, photo courtesy of Mecum Auctions), that was once owned by Lance Reventlow of Scarab fame, highlights an impressive selection of significant early muscle cars and vintage drag cars that will be on offer when Mecum Auctions hosts its biggest sale of the year, January 6-15 in Kissimmee, Florida. The 60 acres of Osceola Heritage Park will welcome as many as 3,000 collector cars, — more than 150 Corvettes, over 100 Camaros and Chevelles, 75 Mustangs, more than 50 Porsches and a huge helping of Hemis — everything from entry-level collector vehicles to multimillion-dollar investment pieces. Also up for bids will be a thousand examples of Road Art.
Included in the offerings of rare machines is a trio of 1968 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Lightweights — of which only 51 were ever produced for drag racing. Other standout consignments are vintage drag racers from the collections of Don Fezell, and Jackie and Gary Runyon, including many linked to famed quarter-mile names like Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins, Dave Strickler, Dick Milner, Bill Ireland, Butch Leal, Arlen Vanke, Warren Barnett and others.
