Mecum Auction Photo Dump (lots of pics)

Quiz- which of the cars below has a completely custom body style - which was not offered by the factory that year?

1962 Ford Galaxie - G code 406 tri-power. This car had a sweet lope at idle.
1962 Catalina bubble top - aluminum block dual quad motor. Much louder than the Galaxie above.

1958 Impala
1957 Eldorado Biarritz. Running a more recent 472, and nearly silent (especially compared to the Pontiac and Ford up above)
1959 Olds 98; 1964 Catalina; and I believe a ‘49 Chevy.
Yes, there are 2 - 1961 Ford Sunliners in this picture. And a 4 door convertible Continental.

1963 Catalina. Was wearing 421 badges, but says it was a 389. Column shifted automatic, so I’m sure it’s not a 421.

I spent little time watching the actual auction - with 1,000 cars to see, who has time?

1976 2002. IIRC this sold for $3k. Automatic (sad trombone)
Charger with a 440 (73?). Went for $18k. Looks gorgeous within 10 feet but there’s as much filler as metal down low...

Overall, 10/10 would recommend - tons of cool people around looking and talking about great cars. Parking sucked, but for $20+a few beers, it was a great day.
