The hotly-anticipated Mecum Harrisburg auction will feature some of the most coveted classic muscle cars on earth. From RS/SS Camaros through 427 Galaxies to a bone-shattering Plymouth Savoy, there is indeed something for everyone.
Over 1,000 cars will be presented in all at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex beginning August 2 at 10 a.m. and running through the 4th. In addition to muscle cars, the auction highlights classics, collectibles, motorcycles, and boats. Last year’s auction generated a stunning $21 million in sales.
These are some of the hottest muscle cars hitting the block this Thursday.

1966 Chevrolet Nova SS
Also not strictly a muscle car, this pristine 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS comes fully documented with a numbers-matching L77 283. Original vinyl seats and period-correct bias-ply tires.

1970 Oldsmobile 442
This well-documented 442 has a numbers-matching 455 and turbo 400. Believed to be just 76,600 original miles, with welcome factory air conditioning, power brakes and steering.
1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
This is indeed an actual 138 VIN Super Sport, but with a 396-cid engine from 1969. We love it anyway. A lot.
1970 Dodge Challenger

1970 AMC AMX
This relatively rare AMX comes equipped with the performance-oriented and price-increasing Go Pack option, an even rarer red interior, Ram Air, and the original factory 8-track.
1969 Chevrolet Bel Air
This genius sleeper was a 437 under the hood paired with a 4-speed Muncie M22 Rock Crusher. Featured in the Chevy Rumble Magazine in August, 2008.
1971 Plymouth Duster Twister
Early Seventies styling was never better than when it was painted Sassy Grass green. This sparkling Duster Twister is a rare find indeed, and we don’t care that the 340-cid V8 under the hood isn’t original to the car. This is one sweet ride.
1970 Dodge Challenger T/A
You know what did come with a 340? The 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A. This Plum Crazy beauty has the prized 340 Six-Pack and D21 heavy duty 4-speed transmission with pistol grip shifter. Included in the sale are the original broadcast sheet and owner’s manual.
