I went to a Kruse International Auction a few years ago that was held at a "junkyard".
Story was, the owner of the land had a used car dealership, and when a car didn't sell in a certain
amount of time, it wound up here to rot into the earth. Below are the GM pictures I have. There were 600 cars at
this auction, and most of them sold for under $100. ALL of them were complete. - Bill M.

1967 Firebird: 326 ho car, auto, sold for $275.
1968 Olds Cutlass ragtop 442: no engine, no tranny, but had all the badges. This was a "bondo" machine,
and had been abused long before it came here. Sold for $225.
1965 Impala conv: 327 4bbl car, rusted BAD and missing everything inside, original auto/bench seat car.
1966 or 67 442 Ragtop: This car was complete! 4 speed and original engine still there. Hood looked like it
had flown up at one point (it was folded almost in half). Body wasn't bad at all, but floors were weak.
This one sold for $800, the most money of all the cars.
1966 Impala conv: 327 4bbl car, all there and very restorable. sold for $650.
1971-1972 Heavy Chevy Chevelle: I think it was a 1971, had a 454 in it. It was hit hard up front and was in
a spot in this junkyard where you would have had to move a building, or three HUGE oak trees to get it out.
It has been there a LONG time (probably mid 1970's) sold for $125, but then the guy got buyers remorse
and backed out of the deal. Wound up going for $45!
