Bob McDorman Collection to Sell at No Reserve During Special Mecum Event

Marengo, IL – Mecum Auctions announces a special one-time event has been added to its 2010 auction lineup as they prepare to offer The Bob McDorman Collection, Nov. 5-6, 2010, in Canal Winchester, Ohio.

McDorman, a longtime Chevrolet dealer and passionate collector, will sell his personal collection of 150 superior cars at no reserve. Included in the McDorman offering is the most complete assemblage of Corvettes in the world, featuring one Corvette from every model year 1953 to present and 12 serial #1 Corvettes.

“I’ve known Bob on both a personal and a professional level for more than 30 years, having consigned his items at our auctions, found unique vehicles for him to purchase and even bought my own family’s new cars from his dealership,” said President Dana Mecum. “He is one of the finest Corvette collectors in our industry with a fantastic influence over the hobby, and this auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for enthusiasts to acquire these high-quality vehicles.”

Among the Corvettes crossing the block are Bunkie Knudsen’s 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray and the Pink Pearl – a specially built 1964 Corvette Sting Ray ordered by Knudsen for his wife, Florence. Mecum will also auction a 1938 Chevrolet Cabriolet designed by General Motors of France during an overseas styling exercise. Of the two prototype Chevrolet vehicles designed, this car – featuring unique European influences – is the only survivor, making it a truly unique piece.

In addition to the cars, which range from a 1915 Chevrolet to the last SSR produced, there will be hundreds of collectibles, neon signs and automotive parts crossing the auction block. The complete lineup will be available soon at www.Mecum.com. For more information about Bob McDorman, visit www.bobmcdormanchevrolet.com.

Jim grew up in a small neighborhood of car guys, so the bug bit him early, and rides in his neighbor’s over-powered street rods sealed the deal for good. His first car was a ’66 Caprice with a big-block Chevy—a car which landed him his first job as a mechanic after high school and through college, got him into drag racing, and much to the distress of his wife Kristina, caused his recent home search to take a full year—the Caprice is 19 feet long and gets parked inside. In addition to the Caprice, also maintains a 1972 Chevrolet K10 4x4 and a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.
