Stephen Cox of Sopwith Motorsports joins co-hosts John Kraman, Chris Jacobs, Scott Hoke and Katie Osborne for the upcoming Mecum collector car auction at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex on July 27-30 with an estimated 1,200 muscle cars, exotics, hot rods and customs crossing the block. Mecum Auctions described the vehicles and collections included in this event:
Among featured vehicles consigned to the Mecum Harrisburg 2022 auction is a selection from the Dan The Oil Man Collection, including a Bloomington Gold Certified and multiple-time NCRS Top Flight-winning 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe (Lot S57) presented in its correct Sebring Silver paint and boasting a no-expense-spared, nut-and-bolt restoration. It’s one of only 2,610 produced with the fuel-injected 327/360 HP engine, and it features a 4-speed manual transmission with factory shifter.
Also from the collection is a factory R-code 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback (Lot S56) with the Drag Pack and featuring a matching-numbers 428 Super Cobra Jet V-8 engine and a close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission. It features a Black Jade exterior with gold longitudinal tape striping over a black Clarion-knit vinyl upholstery interior. Two vintage Plymouths will be offered from the Dan The Oil Man Collection as well, including a 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda (Lot S58) with an A833 4-speed manual transmission and a 1970 Plymouth GTX (Lot S58.1) that’s finished in FK5 Deep Burnt Orange Metallic with a very rare V1G Gator-grain vinyl top and powered by a matching-numbers 440 6-BBL V-8 engine and an A833 4-speed manual transmission.
