1969 shelby GT 350 Grabber Blue Mecum 2012

Does anybody know where I can get old video or video clips of the Mecum Auction July 20-21 2012 Des Moines Iowa . My old car was the feature car of the weekend and brought the highest bid of the weekend ? I contacted Mecum Auctions they said they dont keep old clips and if it exists its probably on youtube. I searched youtube extensively and can not find anyclips with my car in it. I did find pictures and some info on it , but no video. Car was a 1969 Shelby GT350 Grabber Blue with white stripes and white interior. Any help is greatly appreciated. Bob

You should get in touch with the production company that recorded the footage.

Mecum produces their own auction coverage. Contact them directly over their website...

Even back in 2012? Its smart of them to have their own subsidiary for it to own and sell/license it as they wish. I know some shops will charge a fee to other outlets for an archive search though. They could start another income stream from owners that show their car crossing the block.

PS. Saw you, for the first time I recall, on the telly last week with the near survivor Ford truck. I apologize for the way I had you wrongly pictured in my mind

Honestly, I don't know if they were handling their own production all the way back to 2012 or not. But they do today, so I still think the first step would be to contact them directly..

Yep, spent last weekend in Denver at Mecum.. Don't know how else you'd picture me, but I'll take it as a compliment! LOL!... I think the Mecum crew thought I was a little off my rocker when I chose that '66 F100 to feature. They typically choose shiny/fancy restored muscle or exotics to feature, so they kept looking at me like my hair was on fire when I doubled-down on the truck. It was a 352 4-speed, rust-free and dry as a bone underneath, the perfect project for a beginner on a limited budget. I see so many complaining about auctions focusing on stuff no one can afford, so I bucked the trend..
