Considered by many to be the most loyal Chevrolet dealer of all time, the late Bob McDorman made a host of personal sacrifices in order to achieve a 50-year tenure with Chevrolet and become one of the few people to ever reach that half-century mark. He was not only loyal in his career path, but also in his collecting. Bob McDorman was, and still very much is, recognized as the world’s greatest Chevrolet collector. Featured below are some of the vehicles that will be auctioned at Mecum Indy 2017.

Chevrolet powerhouses from this collection include four which received the now famed Yenko upgrades, while Plymouth is represented well with a ’70 Hemi Cuda and ’69 A12 Road Runner, both of which are unrestored. A 1969 Torino GT represents Ford in the collection and Plymouth makes a showing with a ’69 LeMans Convertible. For muscle-car enthusiasts, this collection offers up not only some of the raw horsepower that made the late ‘60s and early ‘70s an exciting time to be on the streets, but also a unique opportunity to get their hands on some outstanding examples from the muscle-car heyday. Featured below are some of the vehicles that will be auctioned at Mecum Indy 2017.
