A small-town Midwestern dealership in Pierce, Nebraska sold Chevrolets to local families and first-time buyers for 50 years until it’s husband and wife team finally closed their doors seventeen years ago. Since then, a staggering inventory of 500 surviving cars, new & used, have been undriven for decades. Some 50 Chevrolets from the 1950s and 60s have less than 10 miles on the odometer but sadly, many of the vehicles were kept outside.
Ray and Mildred Lambrecht are now in their 90s and have made what is described by their daughter Jeannie, as a “a difficult and painful” decision, to liquidate the dealership’s massive inventory of ‘survivor vehicles’. On September 28th and 29th, 2013, VanDerBrink Auctions will be selling the collection.
Pre-bidding has already started and there are clearly some favorites out there for which garage spaces are already being readied. It's probable a fair number of these cars will remain not only with the same mileage they have now, but also the same dust on the exterior; a number of rougher examples are sure to be restored and put back on the road. A few really "heavy" model years are especially well represented here, like 1957, 1964 and 1965. The most recent car is from 1986 (a Cavalier sedan), but this is largely a 1950s and 1960s car cache.

After watching the video and looking at the pictures, I have to agree with you, a low mile original (or slightly modified) car that's been driven and maintained would be more desirable to me and probably cost less..

I read an article about this a few weeks ago, and if I remember correctly, it seems a lot of these cars don't have titles because they were lost.

An old friend of mine bought an old Ford dealership in the '90's and it's upstairs was PACKED with all kinds of brand new parts from the '50's and '60's. These places do exist, but hard to find!
