Mecum Auctions to Offer 1965 Lola T70 Spyder, Other Vintage Cars in ChattanoogaOct 15, 2021 10:00 EDT - Oct 16, 2021 20:00 EDT
Mecum Auctions will present a two-day sale of classic cars and motorcycles in Chattanooga this October. The event is part of the second annual Chattanooga Motorcar Festival. Among the featured vehicles is a 1965 Lola T70 Mk1 Spyder formerly owned by automotive designer Carroll Shelby and racing driver Dan Gurney. Lola Cars, a British racing manufacturer, launched the Lola T70 Spyder to compete in American races. The T70’s small chassis was groundbreaking in the 60s and later inspired designs from Chaparral Cars and other brands. The available T70 has a two-tone exterior with aqua accents.
Several vintage cars from the 1950s are also on offer. Collectors can consider a 1958 Chevrolet Impala with a sleek black exterior. This car was an Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Grand National winner. General Motors launched the first generation 1958 Impala to celebrate 50 years of production. The design helped Chevrolet return to the top of the market. Also from 1958 is a Chevrolet Corvette convertible with a white exterior and recently restored interior. Bidders will find vintage cars from Toyota, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, and Pontiac in the auction catalog. For the listings and to register to bid, visit Mecum Auctions.
