Huuuge automotive "Barn Find"

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Barn find? Oh the old stories go about about the son who bought a 63 Corvette just before he goes off to war then doesn't return. The car sits in the barn/garage for decades because the parents can't stand to see the car then finally put an ad in the paper and sell it for cheap. This one is a little different... In Canada aye was a dairy farmer aye that wanted to invest in cars so he started stock piling cars that were supposed to increase in value. Without getting too in-depth, I will share the LINK from Jalopnik. 

 

Here is a list of the cars...

The Heritage is the Blue/Orange Gulf colors. One recently sold with 25 miles on for a modest $700K. 

 

What surprises me is this guy had THREE GT's. My old boss who was a car freak and had the means to buy one tried but couldn't get even ONE. He was a Volvo dealer shane Volvo was a part of Ford and had Steve Saleen's number in his phone and still couldn't get one. 

 

The three I would take...

 

Ford GT Heritage

Lincoln LS..it's a stick

F350 Harley Davidson.

They're all too new to be truly a "barn find" IMO.  Vettes and the Camaro are pretty cool.  A neighbor of mine back when I was in high school had a brand new 65 Mustang convertible in their garage. It only had 50 miles on it.  The guy got it for his wife but she never learned to drive.  After ten years he realized it was quite valuable and increasing.  I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen the car and the odometer with my own eyes.

Ah ye of little vision.

 

Even you have to admit the Ford GT's are some of the most magnificent machines produced in the past decade.

I was kind of hoping for a Studebaker Avanti turbo...or a Shelby Cobra.

That's an awesome list though.

Sure, an original (street version) for it's history and the war waged against Ferrari. New one? Not so much, many other cars interest me more (Audi R8, BMW M4 or M6 coupe, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, etc
