Treasure chest of 500 abandoned ‘new’ classic Chevrolets to be auctioned offIn this tale of buried treasure for classic car collectors, a small-town car dealership in Nebraska is the X that marks the spot.
A Chevrolet dealership that opened in 1946 and closed 17 years ago because its owners retired, will open its doors again to auction off the nearly 500 “brand new” and used Chevys from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s that have been sitting undriven in the abandoned dealership building or off-site storage facilities for decades, messynessychic.com reports.Although covered in a thick layer of dust and dirt, some of the classics still have manufacturer window stickers, plastic covering the seats and just a few miles on their odometers‚ frozen in time after they were delivered from the manufacturer when they were fresh off the assembly line. These classics will likely need some restoration work, but because these cars have all original manufacturer parts, they’re rare and sure to find eager buyers.
