It is most car enthusiasts dream to stumble upon an epic barn find, but realistically it is only something that happens once in a blue moon. However the guys of VanDerBrink Auctions stumbled upon quite a find in Grant, Nebraska. The small town was home to a Chevrolet car dealership that evntually went out of business. However, approximately 200 old vehicles were left inside.
The old run down dealership housed several 1950’s and 1960’s GM vehicles as well as quite a few pre-World War II cars in need of restoration. It was certainly a tremendous find that proved to put Nebraska on the map for epic barn finds. Especially because another massive find was found at another Chevrolet dealership only a few months earlier!
Some very rare models were found among the salvages vehicle including; 1931 Ford Model A, 1934 Ford School Bus, 1936/7 Ford Pickup, 1941 Ford 2-Door Sedan, 1938 Cadillac Model 60 4-Door Sedan and even a 1925 Buick 2-Man race car. The Bullock family who had owned the dealership also owned a restoration shop and since the dealership had an impressive stockpile of NOS parts, projects, and parts cars it only made sense for them to get to work on some of the classics.
Although there were a lot of junkers in the collection of old cars there were also some incredible collector cars thrown in the mix.
The 1965 Pontiac GTO pictured above is certainly one of the incredible gems found in the collection.
Some other notable gems throughout the collection were the 1957 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup, and a rather fascinating 1959 Cadillac Eureka Body Hearse.
Overall this collection did pretty well in auction and was a great find by the guys at VanDerBrink Auctions.
