There are two miles on this 1959 Bel Air Sport Sedan.
There are just two miles on this 1960 Chevrolet truck. And it’s Chevy’s stepside model!
If your oil pressure rises for unrestored-originals like mine does, you’re in a very special time right now, especially if you like low-mileage Chevrolet cars and trucks. In more than 30 years of reading car publications old and new, I can never recall a stash of so many cars with so few miles surfacing as the never-sold Chevrolets in the Lambrecht Collection (Old Cars Weekly, July 4 and July 11).
In case you’re still catching up on past issues, nearly 50 vehicles with odometers registering between 1 and 50 miles and still on the manufacturer’s statement of origin (MSO, the document included from a new car dealer), will be offered Sept. 28 by VanDerBrink Auctions in Pierce, Neb.
Yvette VanDerBrink has been shooting images of the cars as she unearths them, and they’re a treat so far: a 1958 Chevrolet Apache Cameo with 1.3 miles; a 1964 Impala Sport Coupe with 4 miles; a 1963 Impala Sport Coupe with 11 miles; first-generation Corvair coupes with less than 20 miles. Many of them still have the window stickers on the side glass and Chevy-poured oil in the crankcases.
Here are some of the latest pictures from VanDerBrink Auctions:
This 1964 Chevrolet station wagon has 326 miles and retains its window sticker.
This 1965 Impala carries a 396-cid V-8 and looks like it’s been stored inside. It has 12 miles.
Unfortunately, this 1965 Chevrolet Impala with a 396 and 10 miles doesn’t look as lucky as its turquoise brother – this one has signs it’s been stored outside and has rust forming.
There are just two miles on this 1959 Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan.
This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe (two-door hardtop) is one of the trade-ins Lambrecht Chevrolet took in. It looks complete.
There are seven miles and a window sticker on this V-8-powered 1966 Bel Air sedan.
Just 1.3 miles has been registered on this 1958 Chevrolet Apache Cameo; the never-installed floor mat remains rolled up behind the seat.
There are 11 miles on this V-8-powered 1963 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe. Note the transport plastic remains on the like-new upholstery.
17.2 miles have registered on the odometer of this Corvair Monza coupe with the 145-hp engine and a four-speed transmission.
The odometer has spun up to 4.4 miles on this 1964 Impala Sport Coupe with a 327 and three-speed. The wheel covers have never been installed and remain in the mint trunk.
Another low-mileage Corvair coupe.
Registering an amazing 17 miles, this “Turbo Air” Corvair Monza has the 145-hp engine and a four-speed manual transmission.
Among Lambrecht Chevrolet’s low-mileage trade-ins is this 1957 Chevrolet Two-Ten sedan in straight and solid condition.
