We’re old enough to remember when a Ferrari F40 only cost a million or so dollars–because that’s what they traded for just a few short years ago.

Today, though, budget a little more: Mecum just got $3,135,000 for this 1992 Ferrari F40 at last week’s Kissimmee sale. Then add in the 10% buyer’s premium.

Is that price a fluke? Not at all. RM Sotheby’s sold an F40 for $3,250,000 last month. They have another one scheduled for Arizona later this month. Will it top $3.5 million?

Looking for something a bit lower in price? We saw that as well, and here are a few more photos from our return to Mecum’s Kissimmee sale.

2005 Porsche Carrera GT

Unsold at an even million dollars. Cheap F40 alternative?

1969 Ford Mustang Custom Fastback

Six lights up front, 4.5 inches sectioned from the body, and sold for $39,600.

1989 Chrysler Maserati TC

For $6050, are you interested?

1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra

That King Cobra that we looked at before it crossed the block? It brought in $24,200.

1969 Opel GT

For the exact same selling price–$24,200–you could have bought this Opel GT. And, yes, it had the four-speed box.

1978 Clenet Series 1 Roadster

You won’t see another one on the road, right? Just one of 250 built.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Sold for $84,700. We remember when these went in the teens–because that’s when we bought ours. Even up close, this one looked clean–way clean.

1993 Toyota Supra Turbo

Unsold at $70,000–had the automatic but looked stock–while the silver one behind it sold for $129,250. (The silver one had a stick.)

1985 Lamborghini Countach

Prices on these shot up about a year ago, but this one didn’t get past $470,000. According to the listing, it’s one of 37 cars retrofitted to Bosch injection.

1969 Dodge Daytona

Did it fetch $1.43 million because it was one of one–the only painted Copper Metallic and fitted with a Hemi and four-speed? Or was it the celebrity lineage, as past owners included Kevin Greene (former NFL player) and David Spade (comedian)?

They also got $60k+ for a 90s era Chevy single-cab long-bed truck. It is insane what people will pay at auctions like that.

If the ugly Ferrari is worth that, imagine what a 250 GTO costs.

Watching Kissimee, my take away was shock at how much pure stock 70s era muscle cars were selling for.   Things with lousy suspension, ball steering, carbs, and drum brakes.

I can see paying for pro-touring cars with FI, disk brakes, good suspensions, etc.  But things that were rebuilt to look just as they came off the factory floor 50 years ago????

I was there as the Daytonas and Superbirds crosssed the block. This photo kinda taken from the wings, but look at the floor ($1000 to sit down there) plus the main grandstand.

And a 454ss truck with 7 miles went for 100k

As the second coolest Ferrari made in my lifetime, its probably about right.  What are 288 GTO's going for these days?

Can confirm. Hagerty values a 250 GTO in concours condition at $70 million. If you are looking for a project, though, you'll likely only have to pay something closer to $51 million.

I'd have to do more research to track down recent auction results, though.

In reply to Toyman! :

Damn, I thought the one I saw for 6K was too much for a Single Cab long box with 4X4. I may have to rethink that.
