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.
