1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Truck

Selling at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction -- January 16, 2019

7.2 original miles! (that is not a misprint)

Delivered new to “Lambrecht Chevrolet Co.” in Pierce, NE in August of 1965.


  • Original Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin (MSO), dealer vehicle invoice and the September 2013 Omaha Sunday newspaper article highlighting the weekend that 500 of Lambrecht Chevrolet’s collection of new and used vehicles were auctioned off (Google the name – it’s unbelievable). Approximately 50 of these vehicles were new, unsold cars and trucks still on MSO with under 10 miles.
  • This is one of them and probably the best survivor of the nearly 25 new trucks. Most of the 500 vehicles were parked outside for decades on his farmland near the dealership. Many were vandalized and/or missing parts due to theft. This was one of the “luckier” vehicles with every born-with, original part still intact right down to the original Delco battery.
  • After recently purchasing this truck with 5.1 original miles I decided to wake it up from its 53 year nap. 300 hours later I had an excellent running, driving and completely operable 1965 Chev Pickup that now has 7.2 original miles.
  • Here is the short version of what we did: rebuilt the starter, carburetor and radiator, new battery, water pump, fuel pump, master cylinder, brake cylinders and lines, 2 heater hoses, heater core and the upper radiator hose. An yes, I saved all the original parts and re-used every original nut, bolt and screw. After all that we spent FOREVER cleaning every square inch of the truck from bumper to bumper inside and out.
  • Lastly, the original wood in the bed had completely rotted away so we cut and replaced all 10 boards and painted them in flat black just as the factory did. Every rail, nut and carriage bolt again went right back in its original location.
  • The body is truly remarkable considering the Nebraska weather conditions. Only a few very small rust holes in the lower rockers, everything else showing is surface. The original red and white baked enamel paint has miraculously survived better than anyone could ever expect.

The truck is equipped with the following:

Original 292 6 cylinder engine

Original 4 speed transmission

Original 12 bolt rearend

Original deluxe air heater

Original radio delete

Original Fawn interior/ upholstery

Original rubber floor covering

Original exhaust system with NO leaks or holes

Original spare tire and all 5 wheels and caps

Original spark plugs, wires, spiral shocks, T-3 headlights, battery cables, all glass, etc…

This is an amazing truck. Don’t miss it!
