STAMFORD, Conn. – June 11, 2014 – NBCSN will present more than 15 hours of Mecum Auctions coverage this weekend, including a pair of multi-million dollar cars that could set world records at auction, starting on Friday night at 8 p.m. ET.

 

More than 600 cars will be up for auction at this week’s Mecum Seattle Auction, including two multi-million dollar offerings – a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible, and a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 – that could set records for the highest price ever paid at auction for those specific makes and models.

 

This weekend’s 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible is one of just two 4-speed versions in the U.S., one of 11 Hemi Cuda Convertibles produced in 1971, and is widely regarded as one most sought-after classic American muscle cars. The 1967 Corvette L88, considered by many to be the pinnacle of mid-year Corvette production, is one of just 20 that were produced in 1967.
