Never Used Chevy Pickups from '50's & '60's Sold on Nebraska Auction

Sep 30, 2013

Not your average auction Saturday (September 28, 2013) in Pierce, NE.

Lambrecht Chevrolet was opened for business in 1946. Owner Ray Lambrect is now 95 years old. Since the late 1950's he kept many never sold Chevy cars & pickups on his lot, sitting outside, also many in a storage warehouse that eventually had the roof collapse after a heavy snow. Saturday was sale day. What would these never sold classic Chevys go for? Chatter leading up to auction day was amazing. Here's a partial list of the Chevy pickups sold:

1958 Chevy Cameo pickup with 1.3 miles...sold $140,000

Like I said, this wasn't your average auction, was it? It will be interesting to watch and see down the road how many of these classic Chevy pickups are restored and then possible brought back to auction to sell. I'm guessing we'll be seeing a few on upcoming Barrett-Jackson TV auctions.

what a waste of good iron, tooo bad the old man didn't have sense enough to sell them 20 years ago when many of them may have still been running.
