The main attraction of the auction will come from the sale of the Pete Horton car collection and the  Horton Classic Car Museum in Nocona, Texas.

From both The Horton collection and many others, Mecum will be offering up over a record-breaking sixty collectible Corvettes – ranging from 1953-1923. Forty of the Corvettes are from the Horton Car Collection of which three are 1963 Split Window Coupes.  Uniquely, Horton’s Corvette collection includes a Corvette for every year ranging from 1953 to 1970.
