When a dealership in Pierce, Neb., decided to put all of its classic Chevrolethardware on the auction block, more than 10,000 people showed up to get a closer look at automotive history. Some of the vehicles had less than 2 miles on the odometers and have been stored indoors for more than 60 years.
At the end of the day, NPR reports the Lambrecht Chevrolet dealership put almost 500 vehicles up for sale, with the most impressive finds being pickup trucks. The highest purchase price paid at the event was for a 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup (with a manual column shifter, of course) that had been driven only 1.3 miles. It fetched $140,000.
Additionally, a 1958 Chevy Apache 3100 Series pickup with 5 miles on the odometer, was purchased for $80,000.
