A 1936 Delahaye, the Shelby Cobra Concept, more than 80 collector cars of “Big Al’s Collection,” and a new Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition highlight the Mecum Monterey 2021 Daytime Auction, August 12–14, at the Del Monte Golf Course hosted by the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa, 1 Old Golf Course Road, in Monterey, California.

These headliners join approximately 700 collector vehicles and motorcycles to be offered by Walworth, Wisconsin-based Mecum Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction company.

For preview, the gates open daily at 8 a.m. August 12–14. The docket begins running at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 12, and continues at 9 a.m., Friday, Aug. 13, and Saturday, Aug. 14


The award-winning 1936 Delahaye Type 135 Competition Court Teardrop Coupe was bodied by Figoni et Falaschi, and the Shelby Cobra Concept of 2004 is recognized as “The Last Cobra.”

“Big Al’s Collection” includes a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C Long Nose, S/N 08431, with 21,000 miles; a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari, powered by a Hybrid Drive 6.3-liter, 949 horsepower engine, 131 miles; a 2004 Porsche Carrera GT, 5.7-liter/605-horse engine, 3,570 miles; and a 2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, 1 of 14 produced, 755 miles.

All proceeds from the sale of the 2022 Steve McQueen Edition Scrambler 1200, Triumph Serial No. 0278, will be donated to the Boys Republic, a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youth in Chino Hills, California.


Inspired by the Triumph TR6 that McQueen magnificently guided in The Great Escape, the Scrambler, from a run of just 1,000, has a matching serial number matching the plate that “The King of Cool” was assigned in the annual International Six Days Trial in Europe.
