Swayback 1968 Mustang GT

Swayback Pony: 1968 Mustang GT 302

My mother always gave me two pieces of advice in life and here they are, “if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all and always be honest”. Well the first piece of advice probably doesn’t apply to cars much, but being honest does. I’ve found that I truly appreciate when a seller is completely honest about the condition of their car. The seller of this 1968 Mustang GT J-code is brutally upfront about their car and it is actually refreshing to hear a seller admit that their car is a massive rust bucket. It is so bad that this Pony has a bit of a swayback. Take a look at what could be the rustiest Mustang I’ve seen in a while here on eBay or find it in Marcy, New York. Read more »

Bargain Or Basketcase: 1970 Mercury Cyclone

Big block muscle cars are always exciting, but escalating values can keep many of them out of reach for most of us. There are a few lesser known models that can still be had at decent prices though if you are willing to forgo some style. This 1970 Mercury Cyclone could be one of those cars. Although it is not going to be cheap to restore, it will still be more affordable than many of its Cobra-Jet powered cousins. Not only does it have a 429 CJ with Ram Air under the hood, but it’s a Spoiler model! Find it here on eBay in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Read more »

1978 Mitsubishi Lambada

Ukraine Find: 1978 Mitsubishi Lambda

Barn Finds has truly become an international community and we love seeing so many finds from all over the globe! Recently Alex (Aleksei in Russian) from Kiev, Ukraine shared his  find with us. It isn’t the most beautiful car in the world, but his little gem is quite rare. The tale of how he came across it is nearly as interesting as the car itself. Continue reading as Alex tells the story in his own words. Read more »

Credit Card Classic: 1964 Dodge Dart GT

It’s fun to dream about Cobras, Superbirds, and Aston Martins, but when it comes time to actually buy a classic, most of us have to settle for something a little less extravagant. That’s where cars like this 1964 Dodge Dart GT come into play. It’s not rare or exotic, but could still make a fun project for any of us. Find it here on eBay in Dayton, Ohio where bidding starts at $500 with the option to buy it now at $3,200. Thanks goes to Jim S for tip! Read more »

1970-Hemi-Superbird

Seized Muscle Cars Auction

Sometimes people do bad things and sometime those people have large collections of cars. When they are eventually caught, all those cars need to go somewhere in order to pay the money they most likely owe somebody. I won’t go into what the owner of this collection did, but I do think it deserves a look because there are some real gems here. The US Marshals have ordered an auction that will take place this Friday in Lodi, New Jersey. Find more information here on A. J. Willner Auctions. Thanks for the tip Helena S! Read more »

1967 Shelby GT 350

Shelbys Uncovered In France

I recently wrote about an Aston Martin discovered in a barn in France. While the Aston was quite fascinating, there were other interesting cars in the background. The seller didn’t provide any information about any of them and since I don’t know French, I wasn’t able to scour leboncoin.fr for more details. There was a lot of speculation as to what other cars were parked in the barn, but thankfully reader Jo G was able to do some digging and discovered that the owner has listed some of them for sale as well. It looks like some of the speculation was spot on, so be sure to take a look at the other cars here on Leboncoin. Thanks Jo Read more »

Cobras in Barns? Yep, They Are Still Out There!

Update 9/8/14 – Many of you thought this was a fake, but the supposed owner just commented and apparently our little discussion got him motivated enough to pull it out and get it running again! He also claims that it does in fact have a CSX COX number…

From 8/10/14 – Submitted by David Meyer – Nestled away in a rural back garden just 40 or so miles away from central London UK, I’ve found treasure! Yes, it’s aluminum. Yes, it has a FE engine. And yes, it has a CSX chassis number and registration. Does this qualify as a barn find? Read more »

Retirement Plan: 1964 Cadillac DeVille

While browsing ebay, I happened on this sad ’64 Cadillac DeVille. The owner had done a mechanical restoration and had just retired. This was the car that he “was going to take to (his) retirement home in California”, and he was actually driving to California when he had a big tire failure. The rear tire blew out with such force that the fender skirt was blown off the car. Somehow a fire took hold and despite the help of a state trooper and two fire extinguishers the car burned and was a total loss. Find it here on eBay in Cleveland, Ohio. Read more »

1957 Aston Martin DB2-4

Alpine Find: 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4

I’ll be the first to admit that at times I think there can’t be many great finds left out there, but then I get an email about something amazing that has just been uncovered and I regain my hope. If you’re been doubts and need some hope of discovering something incredible, just take a look at the find reader Ab B came across as some inspiration. Ab found this 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 here on LebonCoin.fr. It was recently discovered in a barn in Sillingy, France and is now up for grabs. The seller didn’t provide much information other than what it is and an asking price. And they are asking a lot for this find. They have this listed at an incredible 150k Euros or about $192k.

1971 Toyota Corona Deluxe

Immaculate 1971 Toyota Corona

I recently received an email from a new member of this fine community. In Ray’s email he presented me with a link to a Toyota Corona Deluxe with the question as to whether I believed it was a barn find and if it was truly a survivor as the seller claimed. As I clicked on the link I was expecting to see a worn out old Toyota, but when I got to the listing I was presented with one of the most immaculate and pristine classic Japanese cars I have ever seen. In all honesty, I was taken aback by how fantastic this little car looks. The seller claims it has just 40k miles on it, but it looks like it just left the showroom. I keep looking for signs that it has been restored, but either it is truly original or has been restored to an extremely high level. Be sure to take a look at it here on eBay or view it in person in Grant, Oregon. Read more »
