contact) Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017|4:30 p.m. A company that has staged several successful bike auctions in Las Vegas will be back next month with its first sale for cars and truck collectors in the valley.

Mecum Auctions announced that its occasion, arranged for Nov. 16-18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, would feature an approximated 1,000 vehicles from some 20 surrounding states and Canada.

Amongst the cars and trucks most likely to draw high bids are a 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra roadster, a 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL roadster and a two-owner 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird, a factory-modified, NASCAR-inspired muscle automobile.

Collector Les Quam will offer 11 cars, consisting of five Dodge Vipers and a rare 1968 Camaro.

“The quality of cars and trucks that our consignment group has actually assembled for our very first collector-car occasion in Las Vegas is exceptionally excellent, and I highly encourage everybody to go to Mecum.com to preview the incredible lineup for themselves,” said Sam Murtaugh, Mecum’s vice president of marketing and presentation, in a press release. “While we are certainly no complete strangers to the city of Las Vegas, we are enjoyed be bringing a frequently arranged Mecum collector-car experience to town this November.”

The auction is open to buyers, sellers and spectators. General admission tickets are readily available online beforehand for $20, and for $30 at the door and online after the start of the sale. Bidder registration is $100 online in advance and $200 after the auction gets underway.
