Mecum moves a lot of Boss 429 Mustangs and typically does quite well with them. Their 1970 Grabber Blue example was their Chicago auction’s most expensive car, selling for $269,500. Another Mustang – a 1968 Cobra Jet Lightweight factory drag car – was probably the auction’s most valuable, but bidding stalled at $200,000 and it failed to sell. Other big no-sales included a 1969 COPO Chevelle at a high bid of $120,000 and a 1964 Jaguar E-Type Roadster at a high bid of $135,000.
