1969 Dodge Charger RT

Born 2 Run: 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

If you’re a habitual Barn Finder, I’d imagine you’ve grown used to finding truly great cars but discovering they’re quite rough underneath. This, of course, is the paradox of such finds: they are left untouched but typically also unprotected, making their future as a complete car an expensive proposition. This 1969 Dodge Charger is a well-equipped factory 440 car that will take some deep pockets to restore, but there’s enough history captured in its battle scars that I think it’d be worth it, I say that with the full disclosure that I’m a bit of a sentimentalist at heart. Check it out here on eBay where bidding is at $8,300 with no reserve in sight. Read more »

1982 Buick Grand National

What’s In Alton H’s Barn?

Some of us love ’50s Italian cars, while others enjoy ’60s British Roadsters, but it would seem that reader Alton H had a passion for late ’70s and ’80s American Iron. He has amassed over cars twenty American cars ranging from Chevy Novas to Buick Grand Nationals and just about everything between. In recent years though, his interests have changed and he no longer has the time to work on these cars, so he has decide to sell everything off. If you are interest in buying his collection, send him an email here. Read more »

1970 Plymouth Superbird

Winged Warrior: 1970 Plymouth Superbird

When I got up this morning, I knew it was going to be a good day! I’m not sure if I have some type of Barn Finds sixth sense, but every once in a while I wake up knowing there is going to be a very special find that day. I wasn’t sure what it was going to be today, but I knew something special would cross my path. As I was going through user submissions, I opened an email from Jeff L about a few interesting finds. One of the links he provided took me to the holy grail of Mopars! This 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird has been well cared for its entire life and other than an old respray, is claimed to be original. It is now up for grabs here on eBay, without a reserve! Special thanks to Jeff for this tip! Read more »

1978 Saab 99 Turbo

Cosmetically Challenged: 1978 Saab 99 Turbo

If it weren’t for taking the plunge on vintage BMWs, pre-GM Saabs would likely be my drug of choice. From the hatchback funkiness to the liberal use of turbocharging, old-school 99s and 900s just rub me the right way. Unfortunately, finding examples in any condition of the iconic Saab 99 Turbo takes more than a stroke of good luck, which is why this rough-looking ’78 example may actually be worth throwing a bid at if you’re on the hunt for one. You can find it here on eBay with a Buy-it-Now of $2,200 and the option to make an offer. Read more »

1959 AMC Rambler Custom Six

Parked Since ’87: 1959 Rambler Custom Six

I’m sure this car must have a tremendous back-story, like some of the other low-mileage AMC cars being found lately. I’m guessing this was someone’s “baby”, cossetted and hardly driven. There are now less than 11,000 miles on the odometer and the car is ready for some more! Uncovered in 2014 and now located in Hackensack, New Jersey, the Rambler is for sale here on eBay at no reserve and a very low opening bid. Read more »

1959 Triumph 10 Wagon

British Motoring Monday: 1959 Triumph 10 Estate

The Triumph 10 (or Standard 10 in the rest of the world) was a compact sedan and wagon line in the late 50’s. Standard-Triumph continued to try to take on the “big boys” with a fairly complete range of vehicles, although the marque is mainly known in the USA for its sports cars. This highly modified 10 Estate Wagon is for sale in San Juan Capistrano, California and is being auctioned here on eBay. Read more »

1964 Pontiac GTO

Tri-Power Goat: 1964 Pontiac GTO

It has been a while since we last featured a first year Pontiac GTO, so when Jim S tipped me off to this, I thought it deserved a closer look. Given the Goats history of speed, it is unusually to find one that hasn’t been modified, restored, or wrecked, but this example looks to be unmodified and clearly hasn’t ever been restored. The seller claims it has only seen 10k miles since new and they say they have documents to prove it. Find this 1964 Pontiac GTO here on eBay with the reserve unmet and the option to Buy It Now for $10,500. Read more »

1958 Isetta 600 Limo

Extra Legroom: 1958 BMW Isetta 600 Limo

Two of my favorite words in any eBay listing are “original” and “paint.” Given the age of the vehicles we typically profile, it’s understandable that many of these cars have had significant touch-ups or full repaints over time to compensate for battle scars obtained over 30 to 50 years of being on the road. To find an example of a classic that has remained in use while never having been repainted is unusual, and this ’58 Isetta 600 Limo listed here on eBay features not only its original Coral finish but several other features that reveal a lifetime of preservation and care. Bidding is strong at $14,600 with the reserve unmet. Read more »

Pair of MGBs

Another Pair: 1966 And 1974 MGBs

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a pair of rubber-bumper MGBs that were available as entry-level classics. Imagine my surprise this morning to find two of the more desirable (to most) chrome bumper models on eBay, both at the same reasonable starting price, and both from the same seller! They are located in Eatontown, New Jersey. The black one can be found here on eBay, with the orange one for sale here on eBay. Both auctions have started at $3,000 with no reserve. (And no, the GT6 on the left isn’t for sale that I can find). Read more »

1948 Ford F3 Pickup

37 Years In A Barn: 1948 Ford F3 Pickup

Now this is a true barn find! Parked in a “dry barn” 37 years ago, this 1948 Ford F3 pickup just oozes that barn find patina. I found myself wondering if the tires really still hold air or if they are just that stiff from being in the barn so long (just kidding!). This vintage hauler is available here on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $6,000 and reserve not met yet, and is located in Glendale Heights, Illinois. Read more »
