Mecum Tulsa 2024 Results – Top Ten Sales

Mecum Tulsa 2024 Top Ten Sales

Mecum‘s Florida Summer Special is fast approaching and it looks set to be an impressive array of collector cars and motorcycles. As we get closer to that sale, scheduled for July 10 – 13, it’s worth taking a look back at the results from their recent auction in Tulsa. While it’s not the big money event that happens in Monterey, let’s look at their Top Ten lots – all of which hammered on the block on Saturday June 8.

Built in extremely limited numbers – just 300 examples were built, each featuring a unique production plaque, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost pays tribute to the legendary car that stalked the streets of Detroit in the 1970s. Mecum sold the real Black Ghost last year, but this model is no slouch. Its supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 generates 807 horsepower and the model does an excellent job mixing modern design and engineering with styling cues from the car that built the Black Ghost name.

The 2023 Cadillac Escalade V is a high-performance variant of Cadillac’s iconic luxury SUV. It’s powered by a 6.2L V8 that produces 682 horsepower, more than enough to rapidly propel the large SUV from 0 to whatever speed its driver wants. This Escalade features V-series badges, the distinctive grille, and a remarkably luxurious interior. It features CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, something GM has said they will no longer include in their vehicles.

Powered by a 5.5L V8 engine that produces 670 horsepower and is paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Coupe is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. It features a wider stance and more aggressive aerodynamic package than the standard Corvette. The example sold by Mecum shows just 140 miles, although the factory warranty did not transfer to the new owner due to Chevrolet’s six month hold window.

This 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback is a custom vehicle that was completed in 2020. It’s built on a custom tube chassis and powered by a 5.0L Coyote V8 paired with a 6R80 automatic transmission. Its interior is fully customized and includes air conditioning. Along with the chrome wheels, this Mustang also features a Shelby-style front clip.

The 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, part of the second generation of Corvettes, is an iconic American sports car symbol. Known as the “C2” or Sting Ray, 1967 represented the culmination of Corvette design from the mid-1960s, showcasing a sleek and aggressive body style. It featured refined styling updates, such as five smaller fender vents and optional side exhaust pipes for enhanced performance. Equipped with a range of potent engines, including the 427 cubic-inch V8 that’s featured in this professionally restored example. It included a build binder and the Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission.

This matching-numbers 1970 Plymouth Road Runner is powered by a V-code 440 cubic inch V8 that produces 390 horsepower. The engine is mated to an automatic transmission and the car features power steering and includes its original fender tag. It presents nicely in blue with with a white vinyl top and Rallye wheels.

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S Coupe is a high-performance sports car that combines luxury expected of a Mercedes-Benz with remarkable power and performance. These cars are powered by a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that generates 503 horsepower when stock, able to propel the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. But this example is anything except stock, featuring a Renntech Stage 2 upgrade that bumps the power to 714 horsepower and is rated at 609 lb-ft of torque. All that power is delivered through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

This 1955 Oldsmobile 98 Starfire Convertible is a ground-up restoration that epitomized the style and innovation of mid-50s American cars. It features sleek lines, for its time, a distinctive front grille, and chrome everywhere. This example is powered by the 324 cubic inch Rocket V8 matched with an automatic transmission. It features power steering, power brakes, power seats, and even power windows. Not to mention its power-operated convertible top! Not as well-known as the Bel Air, the Oldsmobile 98 Starfire Convertible is a more exclusive member of 50s-era American cars than many of the models that spring to mind when picturing the streets of 1955.

The 1978 Pontiac Trans Am has proven to be an iconic muscle car and features bold styling and powerful performance for its day. Best known for the aggressive front end and “screaming chicken” hood decal, these featured sport-tuned suspensions and was notably featured in Smokey and the Bandit.

The example sold by Mecum was custom-built by Killer Customs, later known as SpeedTech Performance. It benefits from a SpeedTech chassis upgrade and is powered by a 572 cubic inch all-aluminum V8 crate engine that produces 715 lb-ft of torque. Certainly not the most practical car, it will make people take notice when its new owner is on the road.

Powered by a 6.2L supercharged V8 that produces 650 horsepower stock, the Z06 3LT Coupe features a seven-speed manual transmission and a targa-style top. The example sold by Mecum in Tulsa is equipped with the Hennessey 850 upgrade that boosts performance to 850 horsepower. The car is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and at a price of $96,800 its new owner should be getting plenty of car for the money.
