The Kevin Sergent Mopar & Wing Car Collection
Selection is the name of the game in Kissimmee for many collectors over the next couple weeks during Mecum’s 25th Anniversary Kissimmee Auction. More than 4,000 vehicles are consigned so there’s certainly something that should catch everyone’s eye throughout the sale, but one collection has been eagerly anticipated for months: The Kevin Sergent Mopar & Wing Car Collection.
More than two dozen examples of the finest cars to ever uphold the Mopar name will be offered for sale by Mecum. There are plenty of Hemi-powered muscle cars contributing to this excellent collection but the most significant lots are a grouping of 10 Superbirds, the winged legend.
One of the most noteworthy Superbirds in the collection is a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird that is a factory R-Code car. It’s a custom build and benefits from four-wheel disc brakes and a five-speed manual transmission by Tremec. Its Hemi V8 is rated at 500 horsepower at the rear wheels.
Another slightly customized Superbird on offer is a 1970 equipped with a 440 cubic inch V8 and a floor shift automatic transmission. It comes with a broadcast sheet showing how it was equipped when it left the factory, but as of now it turns heads in Panther Pink, a color that was not offered by the factory. A white vinyl top has been added, further setting it apart from most other Superbirds as they were all equipped with black vinyl tops from the factory.
It’s equipped with power steering and power brakes with front discs and shows 44,837 miles, which is believed to be original. Mecum estimates this Superbird to be worth $215,000 – $235,000.
A factory-equipped V-Code Superbird with its matching-numbers 440 cubic inch 6 BBL V8 pops in Lime Light with a black vinyl top and black interior. It comes with two broadcast sheets and is equipped with power steering and power brakes with front discs. Its odometer shows 58,925 miles and it’s offered on a Pennsylvania actual mile title. Mecum estimates this to be worth $215,000 – $235,000.
In addition to the Superbirds from the Kevin Sergent Mopar & Wing Car Collection, there’s also a 1969 Dodge Daytona that’s equipped with a 440 cubic inch V8 and an automatic transmission. A matching-numbers car, it includes a broadcast sheet confirming that it wears the correct EV2 Hemi Orange paint and is equipped with power steering and power brakes with front discs. This is expected to bring $250,000 – $300,000.
More than just Superbirds, the entirety of the Kevin Sergent Mopar & Wing Car Collection will sell with no reserve and should grab plenty of attention from bidders and onlookers alike.
