Classic Car Market Update: September 2020

After a disappointing August, September 2020 makes it seem like we’re back on track. The market was up 9% to $73.0m in USD denominated sales, compared to $67.1m in September 2019. Nice to see growth even when massive events such as Mecum Dallas were delayed until October.

Sales were down 26% for the quarter (Q320), largely due to the lack of blockbuster sales at the physical auctions that usually take place in August during Monterrey Car Week. 

Note: Stats quoted in this post are as of September 30, 2020 @ 7pm eastern.

At $1.152m, this 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing took the top of the sales chart – the 2nd Gullwing to sell for over $1m at Bring a Trailer
