Up for Auction - Chevys Stored For Decades Undriven

Scores of new Chevys stored for decades undriven finally up for sale

For all you call Guys and Gals here you go, Lambrecht Chevrolet of Pierce, Nebraska is opening their doors and selling some 500 odd vehicles they have had for decades and get this roughly 50 of these have less than 10 miles on their odometers.

Lambrecht Chevrolet was like many Midwestern, small-town dealers — owned and operated by a family, with minimal overhead and little need for advertising since most customers were neighbors.  The Dealership was run by Ray and Mildred Lambrecht and if you can believe this just one employee for 50 years before closing up.


If you watch any of the A&E Network shows - Storage wars, Hoarders, American Pickers, American Restoration and so on this is for you.  Fortunately for collectors, the Lambrechts preservation-through-neglect has created the type of barn finds that many search years to discover. Among the dozen low-miles pickups sits a 1956 Chevrolet Cameo pickup with an odometer reading of just over one mile, and a 1965 Chevy Impala with six miles that still has its original window sticker and the plastic sheeting that covered its red leather seats.  Are you a Corvette fan try the limited edition 1978 two tone version with only 5 miles on it.   The rest of the 500-car list reads like an inventory of popular models from the '50s and '60s — Bel Airs, Corvairs and even a couple of Vegas.  The auction will take place in Pierce, Nebraska with the VanDerBrink Auction company at the controls Sept. 28-29.
