Mecum Auctions is sharing the results of a record-breaking Mecum Houston 2022. The three-day auction headlined by the Triple J Ranch Auto Collection was held from March 31-April 2. Mecum says it made a record $34.5 million in overall sales, as 1,047 vehicles crossed the block with an 86% sell-through rate.
The No. 1 seller was an officially licensed Eleanor Tribute Edition 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback that brought $253,000. A 1967 Pontiac Monkeemobile Replica wasn't far behind, bringing $242,000. The Monkeemobile and the auction’s third-highest seller, a 1959 Cadillac Ghostbusters Ecto 1 Replica that sold for $220,000, were part of the Triple J Ranch Auto Collection at No Reserve. So, too, was No. 10, a 2005 Lamborghini Mucielago Roadster, which sold for $162,250. In total, 170 cars from the Triple J Ranch Auto collection sold for an aggregate exceeding $7.37 million.
