1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe doesn’t sell, highest-bid comes in at $6.8 million

Dana Mecum, the president of the Mecum auction house, said that the rare 1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe CX2601 you saw last month could bring in $12 to $15 million dollars. Well, this past weekend at the 22nd Dana Mecum Original Spring Classic Auction, the “American Crown Jewel” brought in the highest-bid at $6.5 million.

While that is a heft amount of money to us, it wasn’t enough to meet the car’s reserve price and no records were broken.

Mecum said that he is confident that he’ll get a deal done soon.
