Mecum Indy Cobras
« on: May 16, 2019, 07:06:31 PM »
Multiple 289 and 427 Cobras going thru this auction Friday and Saturday.  Most of these are well done restorations.   So prices will be interesting.

Totally jealous, as I wanted to make the Indy auction so badly.

Have fun!  :D
Nothing beats a classic!

The sold prices listed are the 'all-in' price which includes the buyer premium, not the hammer price. ;)

Yep, my mistake. I've edited the list accordingly.

I noticed that trunk photos were not included in any of the advertising. Did anyone happen to get photos of GE trunk areas of the Cobras that went through the auction? I would am especially interested in photos from 2416. Thanking you in advance.

Mark CSX 2416 as "unsold." The buyer was unable to complete the sale.

Apparently there has been some bad information circulated re. Steven Juliano's Cobra CSX2416. It DID sell at the auction, on the block, and there have been no changes to that since. This isn't secondhand info, I was there for the last six days assisting Steven's family with the sale of his collection. Hope this helps clear things up.

Sincerely,
Colin
