Mecum Auctions’ recent Windy City event turned out to be a little chillier than expected, as total sales fell to $13.8 million, down 35 percent from last’s Chicago total. Much of that can be attributed to a 13-percent drop in sell-thru rate – and what seemed to be a sleepy crowd in the stands. Top sales went to a trio of Ford GTs, topped off by a 182-mile 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition Coupe sporting the legendary Gulf Racing livery, which brought an impressive $513,000. Ford GT prices have been on everyone’s radar for their quick appreciation, and it looks like the momentum will carry on for a while.
