Prices were strong in the Lambrecht Chevrolet collection auction in Pierce, Nebraska, Sept. 27-28. VanDerBrink Auctions, with assistance from Proxibid, started off selling NOS Chevy parts higher than market value. Hub cap sets sold for $400 and other ridiculous prices were paid.
Among the vehicles, the first to go under the auction hammer was the top seller – the 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup with 1.3 miles and a dented roof, which sold for $140,000. Next up, a 1958 Chevrolet Apache stepside truck with 5 miles sold for $85,000. Then the ’78 Corvette pace car with 4 miles sold for $80,000.
I offered a play-by-play of the auction action elsewhere on the site, so I am including a few more of the top sellers not necessarily pictured there, as well as several of the other great cars offered in the auction. Although Ray Lambrecht sold Chevrolets, and thus received many Chevrolets as trade-ins, he also took in a few other makes of vehicles. I tried to show a few of them here, too.
