Rare Corvettes and More Classic Iron at Mecum Kissimmee

When we became the Exclusive Tire and Wheel Sponsor of Mecum Auctions last year, we were blown away with the attendance and excitement at Mecum’s first event of the year in Kissimmee, Florida. This event draws thousands of cars to the auction block, with tens of thousands of people making their way to join the bidding action. For 2019, we were pumped to be going back to the Sunshine State in January. As soon as our feet hit the ground, it was clear there were LOTS of heavy hitters going up for auction. The Shelby GT500 Super Snake, a GT40 Roadster, and some of the world’s finest and rarest Chevrolet muscle cars just to name a few examples. Corvettes are always popular at collector car auctions and this event was no different, with dozens of six-figure examples, including a beautiful white 1963 Corvette Z06. Take a look at some of our favorite Coker-equipped vehicles at the 2019 Mecum Kissimmee auction and be sure to check out a Mecum Auction near you!

Gotta love this 1969 Corvette L88 roadster…triple black with Firestone Wide Oval redlines on it! Wow!

The white 1963 Corvette Z06 was a race-ready combination with a fuel injected 327 and giant 36-gallon fuel tank, special brakes and improved suspension. We love the skinny stock steelies and Blackwall bias ply rubber.

One of the big money cars on hand was this 1970 Chevelle Super Sport convertible, packing an LS6 big block engine. The Firestone Wide Oval raised white letter tires are on point!

How ’bout a hot rod thrown in the mix? This historic 1932 Ford roadster is the famous “McMullen Roadster”, which has graced the covers of Hot Rod, Street Rodder, and Popular Hot Rodding magazines. The tires are big-n-little Firestone Deluxe Champions.
