Kansas City Mecum Collector Car Auction turns out to be a great car show
The main feature car of this auction was this 9,300-mile, 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special. It was one of three Twister Specials offered at the sale, and it definitely drew plenty of interest. They made 96 of these for the Kansas City region in 1970. The twister part was because of tornadoes … Kansas City … Kansas … Wizard of Oz. Get it? Anyway, this was one of only 48 Twister Specials with the 428-c.i. Super Cobra Jet engine. The rarity was reflected in the price, as this car sold for a healthy $107,500.
There were tons of great cars to look at at this auction, and I didn’t skimp on the pictures. See all 720 of them in the slideshow below, or click this link for a nicer version.
