January is a busy month with regards to auctions, especially in Scottsdale, Arizona. But just after the clean-up crews have called it a day out west, things start to jump to life in the Orlando region of Florida: Mecum Auctions rolls in to Kissimmee for their annual event, which runs from January 26-30. We’ve already mentioned the plethora of vintage domestic race cars that’s sprinkled throughout their catalog, but we also took note of a few interesting imports – including a couple of microcars – that deserve equal time.
First up is Lot T136: a 1964 Goggomobil TS-250. This two-cylinder, four-speed equipped coupe weighs just over 900 pounds and was restored at an undisclosed time. Although not a microcar, we couldn’t help but notice Lot T137: a 1959 Volvo PV544 listed as an original car with California tags. According to the consignor of Lot T156, the 1958 Messerschmitt KR200 still wears its original paint after spending most of its time in a museum. The Lot T158 designation is reserved for a 1971 Saab Sonnett III shod with green paint and a tan interior, and showing just 57,000 miles. Finally, there’s Lot T281: a more modern 1985 Maserati Bi Turbo E notchback coupe, which will be offered without reserve.
There’s plenty of other imports listed in Mecum’s catalog, including several MGs, Austin-Healeys and the obligatory Volkswagens.
