Mecum is returning to its roots in the Chicagoland area with the Chicago 2022 collector car auction set for Oct. 13-15 at the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill.
An estimated 1,000 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, trucks, exotics, hot rods, customs and more will cross the auction block in this huge Midwest event.
Among the featured auction offerings are a pair of 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6s. The first is a special-order car equipped with the LS6 454/450 HP engine and an M40 TH400 automatic transmission. It’s dressed in Tuxedo Black, comes with two original build sheets and boasts a comprehensive restoration completed in 2013.
The other is a Cranberry Red-over-black example that boasts a matching-numbers engine, a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission, Winters aluminum intake manifold and Holley carburetor.
Representing the Mopar scene is a Plum Crazy factory 1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible restored as a Hemi Challenger R/T convertible replica, and equipped with a 426 Hemi V-8 engine, 4-speed manual transmission and power steering and brakes.
For Corvette lovers, the auction will feature a multiple-time Top Flight-winning 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible with an original L78 engine and 4-speed transmission. And from the more luxurious realms of classic car history is a 1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible that was previously owned by Helen Brach, “The Candy Lady” of Brach’s candy company fame. The unique car shows just 16,000 miles on the odometer and is finished in a specialty shade of bold magenta paint with a contrasting off-white convertible top and off-white leather interior with coordinating magenta piping.
