When reader William D sent us his barn find, this was the first picture we saw. We weren't sure what was under all that debris, we weren't even sure if it was car under there. We thought he either sent us the wrong photo or he was just messing with us, but then we saw his next photo.
Once we saw his next picture we knew exactly what was lying under all that junk. The big GTO lettering made it pretty easy to identify and based on the design of the grill we would say it's a 1969 Pontiac GTO. This GTO has obviously been parked in this barn for a long time, but thankfully it didn't get buried until recently.
William has been driving past the property that this car is parked on for the past 10 years. Recently the owner put a for sale sign up on the property, so he stopped to take a look and he ended up discovering this GTO parked in the barn. At the time the barn was still standing, but a few weeks ago a storm hit the area and caused a tree to fall on the barn, collapsing it in on the GTO.
We hope the cave-in didn't cause any extensive damage to the car, but it's hard to tell what kind of condition the car is currently in. William says he is going to go back and get the VIN, so he can get more details about the car. It's sad to see a classic muscle car in this kind of situation, especially considering this one only has 45,000 miles on it. Our special thanks to William for sharing his find. We hope he keeps us updated and we wish him luck on digging it out.
