Low-mileage unsold Chevrolets to auction in Nebraska

Ray Lambert Chevrolet dealershipThe auction has already attracted international interest, with rumours of a secret Nebraska horde of Chevrolets circling among collectors for years

The cars belong to Ray Lambrecht, who ran a Chevrolet dealership in Nebraska for over 50 years. He held on to the cars that didn't sell, stashing them in warehouses and at his farm.

Around 50 of the Chevrolets have fewer than 20 miles on the clock and many date from the 1950s and 1960s. Among the most valuable is a rare Chevy Cameo pickup, which is expected to see a six-figure sum come sale day.

Although weather and time has deteriorated many of them, the cars will be prized by collectors for their original components, as the majority of Chevrolets of the same age are now restored, their original parts long since disposed of.
