For the automotive enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the arrival of Mecum Kansas City 2023, the wait is finally over! This year marks the 30th consecutive year of this highly anticipated annual gathering, where automotive enthusiasts converge to witness and bid on their dream vehicles. From November 30th to December 2nd, the Kansas City Convention Center will be transformed into a paradise for car lovers, hosting an estimated 700 American muscle cars, classics, Corvettes, trucks, exotics, Hot Rods, customs, and an impressive array of other vehicles throughout the three-day event.

The highlight of the event is undoubtedly The John Hollansworth Sr. Collection, a remarkable assortment of 13 lots that will be offered at no reserve. This unique collection features a stunning selection of vehicles, including a 1930 Ford Model A Coupe, a 1937 Ford Trostle Sprint Car, a 1958 Austin FX4 Taxi, and a 1996 Diahatsu Midget II Pickup. The collection, originating from various manufacturers such as Chrysler, Morris Minor, Oldsmobile, Packard, Plymouth, and Singer, truly showcases the diversity and spirit of the automotive industry.

Another highly anticipated collection set to grace the Kansas City stage is Jim Blin’s Cars of Yesteryear at Heartland Acres. This extraordinary collection pays homage to the early 20th century, presenting a range of modernized mobility. Among the 16 vehicles in this collection, visitors can marvel at gems like the 1905 Cadillac Model F Touring, the 1912 Model T C Cab, the 1913 Sears Model K Runabout, and the 1913 Velie Truck. In addition to these vintage beauties, midcentury models like the 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible, the 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster, the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, and the 1958 BMW Isetta 300 will also be showcased.

Every car enthusiast’s dream is to own a rare and unique vehicle. Mecum Kansas City 2023 knows just how to cater to this desire, with remarkable lots like the one-owner 1970 Shelby GT500 Convertible. This exquisite car comes equipped with a matching-numbers original 428 CI Super Cobra Jet V-8 engine and boasts the Drag Pack option, making it a true one-of-a-kind piece as confirmed by its Deluxe Marti Report. On the opposite end of the spectrum, yet equally extraordinary, is the Supercharged 2022 Ford Shelby GT500H.

The event also offers an impressive selection of Road Art that is bound to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike. The highlight of the Road Art offerings is The Sullivan Collection, which features an assortment of vintage gas pumps, neon signs, original porcelain and tin signs, and an array of unique car-themed furniture pieces.
