Chevy Plays Cupid

In 2013, Lambracht Chevrolet had an auction and that auction included 50 “ancient” cars. Many of them are the same models that might have been sold at one time at Classic Chevy.

One buyer bought a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and towed it 800 miles to his home in Indiana where he started restoring it. The ’59 had been sitting in a field in Nebraska and was very rusty. The seats were torn and it needed a ton of work.

Inside, among the rust and torn seats, he found a love letter dated Feb. 7, 1965. It was from a woman to a man – and the last line, along with the names of the couple, was still visible on the faded and mouse-eaten letter. The last line said, “Let’s get married.” The new owner of this very old car tracked down the son of the man mentioned in the letter. The new owner thought that the letter should be reunited with its rightful owners.

It turns out that the man in the letter worked at Lambrecht Chevrolet as a mechanic and the ’59 Bel Air was his personal vehicle. He and the woman who wrote the letter eloped and later had two children. The new owner found one of the children and turned the letter over to him.

When you buy a Chevy from Classic Chevrolet you never know who might find it later. You might even buy a used Chevy and find a treasure that someone missed over the years. Some of the popular older models include the Bel Air, Chevelle, Impala, Nova and Camaro. The newer models include the Impala, Camaro, Corvette, Traverse and more. Though you can only assume some of these cars will be around in 50 years, you can probably bet that the Impala and Camaro – or even the Corvette – will be around much later.

Stop by Classic Chevrolet to look at a new vehicle or to look at their used vehicles. You may just find yourself an old love story or missed treasure in an older vehicle.
