Mecum’s reported sales at their 2024 Kissimmee auction of $275 million is certainly a positive indication of the strength of the classic car market for the start the year. The sell-through rate (excluding non-vehicles lots) was 70% over the 13-day auction. During the most important auction days, when premium vehicles cross the auction block (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), the sell-through-rate was slightly higher at 72%. Note these are preliminary sales reports, and “after-auction” sales may result in different sales statistics.
