1940s Chevy Dealer re-opens to Auction off 500 Time Capsule Cars

http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/0...-capsule-cars/

Car collectors dream about finding a forgotten “new” classic car, discovered in a barn or warehouse somewhere, covered in dust. This is that dream, only 500 times better….



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 stored away, undriven for decades. Some 50 cars “brand new” Chevrolets from the 1950s and 60s have less than 10 miles on the odometer.



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 have the honor of selling this incredible, once in a lifetime collection of American automotive history.

Sorry if repost.
I'm thinking this is a lot of trade ins that were never turned over and sold. Also, a lot of inventory they couldn't sell for whatever reason. From first glance, it appears that 99% of this inventory, while pretty much all original, is very meh. The Lembrechts couldn't sell this stuff and now 50 years later, it's considered way more valuable. But the reality is, most of this stuff won't sell IMHO, or it's gonna be pennies on the dollar.

I'm sure there's some really great cars in the inventory too, but I'm saying that there's a reason the Lembrecht's sat on this stuff for so long. I'm just saying much of the inventory is going to be hard to liquidate. The good stuff will be gone fast, leaving a lot of meh around.

I'd probably go for an old 4x4 pickup of some kind. Maybe a 2 door sedan? But I think most of the 4 door sedans with a 3 tree stick shift and a 6 cylinder engine are just gonna sit there for the most part. But who knows? I hope this family makes a killing.

I saw a link to this last week and thought 2 things.

1. Why in the world let these cars waste away like this? The 58" truck has 1 mile on it and a smashed roof.

2. Seriosuly you couldn't find a better narrator for this video? Holy shit she is annoying.

That's one hell of a list. There is some iron in there, but there are also some real gems that are going to ring the bell for all the money. If I lived closer, I would take a look myself just to see that inventory.

Hell I replaced a radiator hose and slapped some epoxy on a hole in a radiator fin while pulled over at a rest stop on the Kansas Turnpike once. Not something I would be nearly as comfortable doing with my Saab.

To me most midrange modern cars really haven't made enough tangible advances to make them a clear cut choice over a "classic" that I can fix myself if needed. Now if you have a car with a backup camera and assisted parking and all that jazz then I can see your point for sure.
MY first car was a 66 impala, piss yellow with a black vinyl top. 283 power slide with a Q-jet 4 bbl
cragar 5 spokes air shock black vinyl interior

Gawd I miss that car

There's a lot of old electrical engineers and software developers that buy up K-Pro's and ancient ass computers. Very difficult to find stone age computers and they're collectible now.
