I performed a pre purchase inspection on this 1960 Chevrolet El Camino at the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mecum Auctions offered several cars from the John Lucey Collection, featuring highly restored significant examples from Ford and Chevrolet. This El Camino was fantastic, highly restored, and finished in a great color combination. The optional equipment on the car was likely well beyond as manufactured, but a wonderful presentation. As with all auctions to date in 2021, the market has been robust and buyers were aggressive. Therefore, bidding on this car went beyond the expectations of my client. Mecum sold the El Camino for $120,000 at auction hammer, $132,000 with premium. In conclusion, well above the estimate of $60,000 to $80,000.
