The Anaheim Convention Center is about to attract a lot of car enthusiasts next month. This is because three hot rods from the Road Tour Collection of Street Rodder are going to be sold there during the Mecum Auction.
From November 12 to 14, the auction will accept bids for 750 collection cars. These include American muscle cars as well as classic automobiles and Resto Mods. The participation of the Street Rodder cars is a commemoration of the founding of the Road Tour Collection.
Specifically, it celebrates the 20th anniversary of the magazine since Jerry Dixey was tapped by Street Rodder to jump start a new collection which eventually became known as the Road Tour Collection. Dixey had agreed to work on building a concept car using the products of advertisers featured in the magazine, which will then be presented in the annual National Street Rod Association event.
The concept ultimately became an annual collection. Three of these Street Rodder Road Tour cars that will be auctioned off in the Mecum Anaheim Auction are the following: a 1952 Chevrolet Bel Air Pro Touring (Lot S120), the 2009 AMSOIL/Street Rodder Road Tour Car; a 1955 Chevrolet 210 Pro Touring (Lot S118), the 2011 AMSOIL/Street Rodder Road Tour Car; and also a 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe Street Rod (Lot S119).
The fourth car became the AMSOIL/Street Rodder Road Tour Car for 2012. In addition to the Street Rodder cars, 15 cars coming from the Mike Doyle Collection will also be auctioned off during the Mecum sale.
These include a 1920 Franklin 9-B Sedan V-windshield (Lot S163), a 1965 Amphicar Convertible (Lot S151), a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible (Lot S152), a 1925 Ford Model T Roadster (Lot S161), a 1929 Ford Dirt Track Racer (Lot S155), and a 1958 Fairlane 500 Skyliner (Lot S162).
A motorcycle and a firetruck will also be auctioned off from the Dixon, California native’s collection. To attend the said auction, a bidder has to register first. This can be done through the Mecum website, which is more convenient and could easily secure the bidder a place.
If that is not possible, they can also register on-site. The registration fee is $100, and allows one guest for the bidder for the entirety of the event. For non-bidders, general admission tickets are at $25 per person each day. Children 12 years old and younger can get in for free together with a purchase of a general admission ticket.
The displays will open at 8 am beginning November 12. However, the first auction will take place at 1 pm on November 12. During the next two days, the auctions will begin at 10 am.
Thirty minutes prior to the start of the vehicle auctions, there will be a Road Art offering as well. If you cannot attend the event, you can still watch live coverage via the Mecum website.
Mecum’s media partner for this event is the NBC Sports Network. The Network will broadcast 18 hours and 30 minutes worth of footage during the actual auctions. The website will also be updated daily with information on which vehicles are being offered for auction on each day.
