Some not very good cars that have been rotting unused and unmaintained for 40 years...no, not something I want. If you bought one, you`d have to do a lot of work to restore it and it would still be effectively undrivable because its only value would be its extremely low mileage.

Good as museum pieces, for their historical cultural value, but not as actual cars. You`d be much better off restoring a high-mileage one that won`t be any more knackered (decades untouched in an uncontrolled environment ruins a car) and which you could drive afterwards.

I would not want any of these cars. They will go to museums and collections - as they should. It would be sacrilegious to drive such a low mileage car.

The reason why those vehicles might fetch some good money....not a million but more than any other car that year is that EVERYTHING is original to the specific car. One of the hardest things to do when restoring a car is to find original parts and these cars are ALL original.

It doesnt matter to me what they sell for, I simply wish I could be at such an auction just to see first hand such low mileage antique vehicles.

"Not a chance. They`re all pretty ho-hum, ordinary cars. There is nothing there that is super-collectible. The only thing they have going for them is the mileage. I`m guessing most of them won`t crack the $100k mark."

I agree. Someone could buy a rusted torn up car for waaaay less than that and build it to better than new condition and not come near the $1M mark.

Personally, I`d want the `65 Impala.

"I bet most of them will sell for close to a mill."

That is my dad`s uncle. He owned the dealership for many many years. At the end of the year if it didn`t sell he just parked them and they sat until now. He also has a farm that is covered in cars. Some new ones that have trees growing out of them. All with under 10 miles on them too. Will need to be there to just see what the prices go for all those cars. Could be unreal.

buy it then replace anything rubber(seals,wires,ect) flush the tank, oil, and any other fluid and you would have a great car. surprised times haven`t gotten tough and they needed to sell them. but now must be it. should let them sit for another 20 years. would be worth so much more

The article says "even ardent Corvette fans look askance at the late `70s models"
BS! I know a LOT of people that actually like the late 70s models. (Including me)

Car snobs.

Absolutely Amazing to find any of these cars brand new, let-alone to find so many at once.

You wouldn`t be able to just put a battery in, gas it up and drive off. These cars would need a lot of work to get back up and going. Sitting away and rotting is often times worse then light use.

Don`t get me wrong, I would kill for any one of those cars. I am jealous of anyone who was able to get their hands them.
