Collection of rare vehicles to be auctioned June 14

Farm Forum

In the Midwest, we typically don’t think of California dreaming, but Lowell Lundberg had an eye for the beach from North Dakota. The classic style of the wooden side panels on those wonderful Woodies was a favorite of Mr. Lundberg. Mr. Lundberg’s career as a “car nut” began when he bought his first car in 1967. He was an attorney, and his profession allowed him to buy an interesting assortment of cars. When you look at an overview of Lowell’s Collection, there is everything from a 1965 Chevrolet Impala Convertible to a rare 1948 Packard 2200 Series Woodie Wagon, 1950 Chrysler Town & Country Newport Woodie 2-door sedan, along with 1949 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country Woodie 2-door convertible.

Lowell’s passion for his cars was a huge part of his life, and some of his happiest times were spent with family at the car barns. Most of his cars had names. His hobby introduced him to life-long friends and wonderful times in his retirement.

Mr. Lundberg has passed away, and with the help of his buddies from the car club, his entire vehicle collection will be offered to the public at auction. The members of the car club have spent hours helping VanDerbrink Auctions clean, move around, and get the vehicles running and ready for the auction. There is also an assortment of collector parts. VanDerBrink Auctions will offer the collection at the Veterans Memorial Hall, indoors in West Fargo on June 14 at 10 a.m. It’s such a wonderful sight to find an assortment of rare vehicles and a great chance for collectors to add one of Lowell’s treasures to their collection.

All vehicles and parts will be sold at NO RESERVE to the highest bidder. Bidding will also be available on-line along with the on-site auction. Pictures, video, and inventory can be found on the website If you have more questions, please call VanDerBrink Auctions and plan now to attend this auction June 14 in West Fargo, North Dakota.
