Chevrolet Cameo pickup sells for $140,000 at Lambrecht Chevrolet auction

By vegavairbob

While many vehicles in the Lambrecht Chevrolet collection warranted attention for their low-mileage odometers – a 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup with a staved-in roof, cracked windshield, and 1.3 miles – would sell for the highest price of the weekend. The crowd was in awe as bids moved past $80,000 and gasps could be heard as it crept toward the six-figure mark and headed toward $125,000. When the auction closed, the turquoise-and-black pickup went for $140,000.
The remaining top 10 vehicles sold on the first day included a 1963 Impala with 11 miles, which sold for $97,500; a 1978 Corvette pace car with 4.3 miles, which sold for $80,000; a 1958 Apache pickup with 5 miles, which sold for $80,000; a 1964 Impala with 4 miles, which sold for $75,000; a 1965 Impala with 12 miles, which sold for $72,500; a 1960 Apache pickup with 2 miles, which sold for $46,000; a 1965 Impala with 12 miles, which sold for $45,000; a 1963 Corvair Monza with 17 miles, which sold for $42,000; and another 1963 Corvair Monza with 17 miles, which sold for $40,000.

The cars and trucks up for bid on Day 2 had all been stored outdoors and the exterior and interiors were weatherbeaten.
A 1964 Chevrolet C10 pickup with 3.4 miles claimed the title for top sale of the day. Its six-cylinder engine appeared to be mostly complete and was backed by a floor-shifted manual transmission. A detail that couldn’t be missed was the tree stump trapped between the front bumper and body. It sold for $27,000.
Despite a lone Oldsmobile, eight additional Chevrolets rounded out the top 10 for Sunday. The list included a 1966 Impala, which sold for $15,500; a 1956 Bel Air, which sold for $14,500; a 1959 Biscayne, which sold for $12,500; a 1966 Chevelle, which sold for $11,250; 1954 6100-series truck, which sold for $10,500; a 1951 3600-series pickup, which sold for $9,500; 1957 Chevy, which sold for $9,500, a 1949 Oldsmobile convertible, which sold for $9,500; and a 1957 Bel Air, which sold for $9,000.
Some surprising buys included a 1970 C10 pickup with a 400-cu.in. small-block V-8 and 14,000 miles, which sold for $7,500. A 1970 Monte Carlo, which seemed pretty complete with 86,942 miles sold for $6,200. A 1980 Monza that appeared to be complete and clean with 9.4 miles sold for $4,000. At the close of the event, an estimated 475 vehicles sold for about $2.5 million.

A couple of friends attended the auction and said it was a circus. There were far more people than anyone was prepared for. Sometimes the vehicles being auctioned couldn't even be seen for the crowd, and many vehicles went for way more than they were worth due to the frenzied atmosphere.
