Van Halen To Auction Two 1956 Chevy Classics

Van Halen lead guitarist Eddie Van Halen is to auction two 1956 Chevrolet Classic cars from his personal collection at an auction in Arizona later this month.

The 1956 Chevy 210 (Lot #1259) and 1956 Chevy Nomad (Lot #1259.1), both pictured above, will be auctioned at the 38th annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. which takes place from January 11 - 18.

Both cars will come with a matching, custom made EVH Brand “Wolfgang” guitars and a pair of red, white, and black EVH striped sneakers.

Explaining why he's selling the cars, Van Halen said: "I almost hate to let them go, but I don’t have the time to drive them. It kills me to see them sit there when someone else could be driving them and have the pleasure and joy of owning these beautiful classic cars.”

"Since they are so dear to me, I thought I would make it even more special by having two custom made Wolfgang guitars built to match each car,” Van Halen added. “I hope the new owners enjoy these cars as much as I have and keep the guitars and cars in their families for a long time, because they are all one-of-a-kind.”
