Mecum Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction company, returns to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, this Sept. 8-11, with an estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, trucks, exotics, customs and more set to cross the auction block.

Among the featured vehicles is a 1966 RCR Ford GT40 Replica that is one of six built by Race Car Replicas for use in the award-winning film “Ford v Ferrari” (photo above). Powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 engine and featuring a 6-speed manual transmission, the vehicle was nicknamed the “Dan Gurney Car” since it was the No. 3 car used in the Le Mans race scenes.

Another highlight is a 1969 Chevrolet Central Office Production Order (COPO) Camaro with just 3,645 miles on the odometer. With its original Daytona Yellow paint, sheet metal and interior, it’s been in the same family for 45 years.
