Classic Chevrolet Collection Let Go in Nebraska

October 4th, 2013 by

Thousands of Chevy enthusiasts flocked to Pierce, Nebraska last weekend to check out a collection of barely-driven classic Chevrolets that were to be auctioned off by owners Ray and Mildred Lambrecht (Ray is a retired Chevy dealer). The town of Pierce is a small town of about 1,800 people, yet nearly 10,000 spectators came by land and air to see about 500 cars in a classic Chevrolet collection be auctioned off and hauled away. How much did they sell for, you ask? Hereโ€™s your answer:ย  for a grand combined total of about $545,000.

One of the most notable vehicles sold was a sky-blue, 1950 Chevy Cameo withโ€”get thisโ€”1.3 miles on the odometer. One. Point. Three. It sold for $140,000 alone! Additionally, a red 1963 Chevy Impala with only 11 miles sold for $97,500, an impressive improvement above its suggested retail price of $3,254.70, which was noted on the still-existing window sticker. It even had the original OEM plastic on the seats.

Ray kept his unsold Chevrolet collection in a warehouse on his farm or around the town of Pierce if they didnโ€™t sell in the first year. What makes his collection outstanding is that the cars have rarely been driven, if at all. A 1959 Bel Air had one mile, and the oldest vehicle with less than 20 miles dated back to 1958. Wouldnโ€™t that have been a site to see?
