1960 Chrysler 300F

Cutting Edge: 1960 Chrysler 300F

Some classic cars were so ahead of their time that when we look at them today it is almost incredible to think a car that's 50+ years old could have technology that seems cutting edge even today. As I look at this 1960 Chrysler 300F I'm astonished by its style and some of the equipment it came with from the factory, many of the features are common place in modern cars, but just 10 years ago would have been features only found in high end luxury vehicles. It sadly has been parked in a field for the past 6 years and will need a complete restoration. There are only 270 of these known to exist, so hopefully someone will save it. Find it here on eBay in San Jose, California with an opening bid of $11k. Read more »

1974 Lotus Elite

Kamm-Tail Project: 1974 Lotus Elite

Have any of you been bitten by the cheap project car bug? I’m sure you have. The symptoms are as follows: low purchase price, famous nameplate, potentially great handling, polarizing design, and finally, the belief you can correct all of your project car’s ills with minimal loss of cash, blood or sweat (and tears, too). That’s what immediately came over me like the onslaught of a bad cold when Barn Finds reader David B sent in a 1974 Lotus Elite here on craigslist in San Francisco for $3,000. There are times when it’s a good thing to be on the opposite coast! Read more »

1967 Sunbeam Alpine

A Pair Of Them: 1967 Sunbeam Alpines

When you look up “under appreciated British roadster” in the mythical automotive dictionary, I’m sure the Sunbeam Alpine (second generation) has to be right there. When new, Alpines offered more creature comforts, better rides, and arguably better styling then many of their competitors, yet frequently they were branded with the “girl’s car” label and often suffered in comparison with their similar appearing Tiger brethren. This pair of Alpines is available here on eBay in Dayton, Maryland with a starting price of $5,000 and a Buy-It-Now of $6,500. Read more »

1958 Alfa Romeo Veloce

Storage Unit Racer: 1958 Alfa Romeo Veloce Spider

Whether you are a fan of American Iron or European Roadsters, the appeal of a barn find is universal. Finding a classic outside your given field of interest might not get your heart racing the same way, but at the end of the day there is still something satisfying about pulling an old car from a barn, shed, or garage. This 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta might not be the car of your dreams, but anyone that loves old race cars can appreciate this find (especially if they are an Alfaholic). The seller claims it has been parked for 20 years, but prior to its days in storage it was used as a race car. You can now find it here on Kapaza in Vivegnis, Belgium. Special thanks to Michel S for this tip! Read more »

1967 Chrysler Mobile Director

Executive Suite: 1967 Imperial Mobile Director

One of my favorite things to do is collect vintage accessories. Obviously, I’m biased towards BMW parts, but I still grab nifty baubles as I see them if for no other reason than to save them from being scrapped with the rest of the hulk of a junkyard car. From CB radios to Becker head-units, or sheepskin seat covers and retro license plate frames, I like holding onto vestiges of automotive options catalogs. That’s why the Chrysler Imperial Mobile Director is one of my favorite Mopar products, and how it’s hard to not jump on the first flight to Tennessee and buy this long-hidden ’67 Imperial listed here on craigslist for an undisclosed sum.

1961 Devin Special

Beauty On A Budget: 1961 Devin Special

It usually isn't too difficult for a seller to list the make and model of the car they are selling, but once in a while I can make an exception for a seller not knowing the exact model of their car. This Devin is one of those few exceptions, as the title won't denote what model it is and I doubt there is a VIN plate or some other type of identification tag. Thankfully, we have featured a number of Devins over the years so identifying the model was as simple as comparing the seller's poor quality photos to a few of the other Devins we have featured in the past. After some careful examination, I believe this to be a Devin Special. Find it here on craigslist in Graham, Washington for $6,500. Read more »

1954 Chevy 210 Wagon

Fleet Of Finds In Modesto California

As Josh related in a recent post, vintage car finds can be loners or come in groups. There’s a very large assemblage of them for sale here on craigslist in Modesto, California that was brought to our attention by Gary E. I think there’s something for just about everyone in this ad! Maybe this 1954 Chevrolet 210 wagon with vintage California license plates trips your trigger? Read more »

1930 Ford Model A Mail Car

Special Delivery: 1930 Ford Model A

As those of us in the northeast hunker down for quite the winter blast, it seemed fitting to write up a vehicle that was designed to withstand the harshest of climates and terrains. I’ve noticed this oddball 1930 Ford Model A kicking around the internet for a while now (we even did a short feature on it here several years ago), and I fear it falls into a category of vehicles that is almost like a purgatory for the truly unusual and noteworthy. It was converted into a high-riding mail truck to traverse the rugged terrain of rural Montana, and still wears its utilitarian charm proudly. But will it ever find a buyer? Check it out here on eBay in Bozeman, Montana, with bidding a tick above $5,000. Thanks to Barn Finds reader Mike B for sending this Read more »

1960 Ford Falcon

A Falcon, A Bronco, And An Airstream

The barn find is an unusual animal. Most creatures tend to be found either in large groups or as solitary individuals. Barn finds on the other hand seem to have no preference for sociability. They might be found as a single individual or in vast congregations, although they do seem to have a slight preference for smaller groups. This "family" (if you will) of barn finds were all pulled from the same old barn, but they come in markedly different forms. We have this 1960 Ford Falcon Futura, a 1974 Ford Bronco, and the most unusual of finds a 1966 Airstream Camper. They are each being offered in separate listing, but you can find the Falcon here on eBay in Winnetka, Illinois with bidding Read more »

1965 Buick Riviera

Open Your Eyes: 1965 Buick Riviera

I don’t claim to be much of a hot-rodder, but one of my favorite car designs of all times remains to be the iconic Buick Riviera. From the hideaway headlights to a surprisingly handsome interior, I’ve always considered the first generation a stunner. There's one for sale on craigslist in Dallas for $3,595, along with a host of other classics. While I wish it had the larger 7.0 liter motor, seeing that snout poking out of a barn is hard to ignore. Check out the photos below and let us know which one you’d take home! Read more »
