The Annual Mecum Spring Classic vehicle auction recently wrapped up and total gross sales exceeded 41 million dollars. The auction lasted 5 days and the Mecum team is reporting a final sell-through rate of 66%.
The Corvette pictured above was owned by Harley J. Earl and crossed the block after someone decided $925,000 was the right price for them. It is definitely a piece of American automotive history, but that is a lot of coin for one car.
Hop the jump for two more vehicle photos and a full list of the top 10 sales.
