On the Weekend of September 28th, 2013, VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC will sell the contents of the virtual Time Capsule. The man behind the mystery is Ray P. Lambrecht, owner of Lambrecht Chevrolet Company from 1946 to 1996. This Collection consists of approx. 500 vehicles from the 1930’s to early 1970’s, and even a few newer vehicles, many of which were trades from the dealership. There are also 30-50 Vehicles that are essentially new and never sold Chevrolets. They are sitting ready for new owners, with most under 10 miles and still on MSO. Mr. Lambrecht’s love cars started at an early age. Ray was born in the kick off of the automobile in 1918. When he was a kid the love the automobile was evident with Ray carving models of cars of the day, down to the very detail of autos of the day. Startling Everyone, at age 9 when he climbed into the family’s 1927 Chevrolet 2dr Coupe and drove his Mother 7 miles to town for groceries. His love of cars stayed with him through being drafted into WWII. Ray was honorably discharged in 1946 from the service and opportunity came knocking.
There is alot of history in this collection and many years of selling Chevrolets. Ray can still remember where all the vehicles came from and the stories of selling them. New Cars that were unsold from that year were also brought out to the farm and stored. The new model years came in and ready to sell to the public. This is where such note worthy cars in this collection are a 1978 Chevrolet Indy Pace Car with 4 miles still on MSO, a 1965 Impala 396 FAC car with 5 miles on MSO, 1958 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup on MSO with 1.3 miles, 1964 Impala 2dr HT with 4 miles, 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS with low miles, and the list goes on with approximately 50 Cars still on MSO! Along with an assortment of TriFive Cars, Impalas, 2dr’s, 4dr’s, and the list goes on. They are everything from survivors, projects and sadly the elements have made some of them parts cars or donors.
Anyone close to Pierce NE?
