Auction report on the Mecum Kissimmee 2016

 

Triumph tr3

Here is more value information on car/sports car according the auction results, this auction was held in January, 2016….

Kissimmee 2016 was, by a margin of 17%, Mecum’s highest grossing Kissimmee sale. Car count remained essentially unchanged but the caliber of the cars on offer, and sold, is apparent from the record average transaction (up 19.6% from last year) and sale total even though the median transaction was just $480 (1.9%) more than last year.
