As we mentioned on April 12th, we’re taking a look at some of the best Mopars that the upcoming Mecum Indianapolis auction has to offer. The auction is taking place from May 14th-22nd, 2021 and is absolutely packed full of some killer Mopars. As promised, we are going to take a look at some of our favorite B-Bodies coming up for auction.
We will note the famous No. 88 NASCAR 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger will also be included in this auction but we intend on doing a full showcase feature on it coming very soon so it won’t be included in this! Surprisingly, there are virtually no A-Bodies coming up for auction so unfortunately we can’t showcase them.
