Mecum Harrisburg 2023 Top Ten

Top Ten Most Expensive Cars at Mecum Harrisburg 2023

Mecum‘s Harrisburg sale was a success last week with a solid number of muscle cars and Corvettes selling on the block, dominating the list of the Top Ten most expensive sales of the auction.

Featuring a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that produces 707 horsepower, this Hellcat features an exposed carbon fiber body in the style of a 1969 Dodge Charger on top of the Challenger SRT Hellcat. It’s covered just 469 miles since new and sports paddle shifters – probably a good idea to keep one’s hands on the wheel with that much power. This car includes a one-day SRT Experience at Redford Racing School.

This is quite the customized car. In many ways it’s essentially a modern Dodge Demon with the bodywork of a ’68 Charger, but that’s not really telling the whole story. It’s equipped with an 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission that pairs with its modern Demon 6.2L V8. The hood is a mixture of the original Charger hood and a hood from a Hellcat. The interior is taken from a Demon and fitted to the ’68 Charger. Included in the sale is a two-day performance driving course at Redford Racing School, during which one would hope this car would get some time on the track, or at least an autocross course.

This Boss 429 includes power steering, power brakes, a rear spoiler, and its original broadcast sheets. Finished in white with a black interior that features bucket seats, this is an original Boss 429, KK number 1570. Its odometer shows a bit over 40,000 miles, though it’s unclear if that’s accurate – however, we don’t have a reason to believe it’s not. It presents very nicely with a clean interior and particularly clean engine bay and should make a fine addition to someone’s collection.

This 2019 Chevrolet Corvette is equipped with the supercharged LT5 6.2L V8, paired with a seven-speed manual transmission. It presents nicely in Jet Black paint with a matching Jet Black interior and sports the ZTK track performance package. The original window sticker is included with this one-owner car that has just 7,716 miles since new.

Finished in Hugger Orange with a black interior, this Camaro RS/SS is powered by the 396 cubic inch V8 that produces 375 horsepower and is paired with a four-speed manual transmission. It retains its original 3.73 ratio rear end and sports power disc brakes. Benefitting from a rotisserie restoration, this Camaro is as nice as it gets.

This is one of 731 Corvettes built with the 283 cubic inch, fuel-injected V8 that produces 283 horsepower. It benefits from a frame-off restoration and is a matching-numbers example. The silver and white exterior pairs well with the red interior, which shows off the three-speed manual transmission nicely.

This GT500KR is powered by a 428 cubic inch V8 that produces 355 horsepower, paired with an automatic transmission. Finished in Candy Apple Red with a Black interior, this is one of only 458 that were built for 1968 in those colors with the same options. It includes a Deluxe Marti Report proving its power disc brakes are accurate along with its original invoice.

It would be disappointing to see a Top Ten list that includes a Corvette without a split-window coupe from ’63. This example presents nicely in Saddle Tan with a matching interior that really shows the effort and money that went into restoring the car to this condition. It’s a two-time NCRS Top Flight winner and was invited to the 2019 Audrain Concours. The 327 cubic inch V8 produces 340 horsepower and is mated with a four-speed manual transmission.

A very impressive custom build, this Camaro RS is finished in Jet Black with a nicely contrasting Bright Red interior. Equipped with air conditioning and a very sleek set of wheels, this found the right buyer in Harrisburg, selling for $167,750.

This is a great example of the “Eleanor” conversion. It’s got a 5.0L V8 that’s designed to appear like a 427 cubic inch Cobra engine. A five speed manual transmission, along with a “Go Baby Go” button on the shifter. It’s signed by Carroll Shelby and a poster from the newer Gone in 60 Seconds was included with it.
