  • Lambrecht Chevrolet Auction

    In case you missed it this is one auction for nostalgia buffs of the '60's with an emphasis on Chevrolet. The back story is a head scratcher... Small town Nebraska dealership ..Owner, wife and one employee ... closed in 96, Owners in their 90's finally decide to liquidate.... 489 vehicles including 50 with less than 30 miles.

    Studes in the inventory include:
    12 Studebaker Champion 6 cyl flat head 3 tree 2 dr HT GI220582 80,000
    25 Studebaker 2 dr sedan 6IO60875 39,000
    126 Studebaker 49 4 dr suicide G491171 76,000

    No indication of condition but the used cars likely have sat outside for all these years. Perhaps you can decode the serial numbers.

      I got a link to this from my uncle who lives in Omaha. Very interesting. Gotta love the Cameo pickup. I do not recall having seen this here before.

        If you bought a 50 year old vehicle that only had 6 miles on it - you are probably going to have to pull and go through everything. Anything that is rubber - mechanically wise - would be gone and I would even think things like the bearings in the rear that had not touched oil in that time might be toast as well.

        Chances are, however, with that few miles on them, none will be driven. Simply put in a showroom for people to look at.

          I would bet that any forum remotely involving cars has been discussing this, especially for the last month or so. I know any I frequent sure has. This is going to be a BIG deal.

            No. 12 - is a 1953 Champion Starliner made in SB.
            No, 25 - number does not compute (at least for me) - even if I make it 61S or 61V.
            No. 126 - number is for a SB 1950 Champion (not a 49).

              Could number 25 be a G1060875?

                I went to a model airplane swap meet yesterday. I spent over $400 on planes and radios and accessories. I only had one item that I wanted to sell, and it was a rather large and powerful four cycle glo plug engine. I did sell it to a fella what took a fancy to it - but for less money than I'd hoped. Glo fuel has gotten to where it costs about $30 bucks a gallon! The model engine makers are now REVERTING to Gasoline-burning engines. Hey! Gasoline - at roughly $4 bucks a gallon - is CHEAP!
                Me? I've been flying Electric since the mid-70s. And back then - other flyers snickered at me 'cause "Electric" was for dweebs. Now - with the advent of Li-Po and Li-Fe batteries, any kind of combustion model motors and makers are feeling the disinterest. Electric power is starting to dominate in model aviation.

                Up until about a decade ago, I was SURE I was one wise cookie in clinging to my Studes as daily drivers. And I STILL love them dearly to this day! But technology is gonna leave die-hards like me in the dust. I mean, seriously.... how many horse-drawn conveyances do you see in regular service these days? Think about it. Whether we like it or stubbornly ignore it - the world and it's technology are changing. So how would you like to be remembered - Stegosaurus, Tyranosaurus, Diplodocus???
                This auction won't be so much about low-mileage survivors as it is about museum pieces.
                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  That assumption would make it a SB 1951 Champion.

                    I lived just 20 miles from this dealership. Back when these cars were new they basically were not for sale. He was strange old dude. If you tried to go over the fence where the trade in cars were located you might have shotgun pellets coming at you

                      The Chrysler-Plymouth dealer in Beacon, NY (not the one there now) was similar on a less grand scale. I do not know about new cars (other than some that he had there that were two or three model years old), but he had many two to three year old trade-ins that he couldn't get his price for so they just sat there for years and years. I was friends with the owner's son, now long since deceased, and was allowed to check out the cars, but I was unable to buy any from the father, the dealership owner (I tried). I did buy one car that belonged to the owner's son, not the dealership, and one three year old trade-in when another friend was a salesman there.

                        While in South Bend and area last year, the Amish are still running around in horse-drawns. As are the Mennonites in Ontairio.

                              The fuel question is legitimate. I think what will retire many of our old cars will be the quality of the gasoline we can obtain. We will either need to replace our engines with modern ones or leave our rides at the local museum. I agree that may be where these cars are headed unless they are purchased by someone with lots of money and a wild desire to get them back on the road. Who knows?
