British Barn Finds

Rare Courier Find In UK Heads To Auction

The Triumph Courier was a small commercial delivery vehicle based on the Triumph Herald. Very few were produced from 1962 to 1966, and even fewer have survived the years since then, so thanks to reader Ricky… more»

Rare Bird: 1966 Triumph TR4a Dové

Here is a fun fact you might not know, the rare TR4 Dové was named for an English car dealer! Each was built to order by Thomas Harrington and Company. There were only about 50 of… more»

Marriage Killing Project: 1973 Triumph GT6

I normally leave the British finds to Jamie, as he is our in-house expert and knows more about these makes and models in his pinky finger than I do in my whole body. However, this 1973… more»

Cheshire Cat: 1964 Jaguar E-Type

Looking at this little old barn, you wouldn’t imagine there’d be much hiding inside. Maybe a Mini or a Sprite, but nothing as grand and impressive as a Jaguar. Yet that’s exactly what was found inside! It… more»

$2,800 Fastback: 1969 Sunbeam Alpine GT

Here’s another 1969 British GT car, and I’m positive that this engine photo is the right one for this car! I’m in St. Louis, Missouri for the night and ran across this 1969 Sunbeam Alpine GT… more»

Sad Cat: 1949 Jaguar Mark V

At first glance, this Jag listed on craigslist looks really nice, or at least hopeful. The $8,000 asking price certainly gets your attention. It runs and drives but things go downhill from there. It’s right hand… more»

$1,500 Barn Find Ford: 1969 Ford Cortina GT MK II

I’m in Huntsville, Alabama right now and I jumped onto Craigslist hoping to find a cool vehicle or two. I ran across this 1969 Ford Cortina MK II that’s down in Cullman, Alabama, halfway between Huntsville… more»

Rather Rare: 1954 Healey Tickford

When you think of “Healey” automobiles, Austin-Healey and perhaps Nash-Healey probably come to mind, but there are other cars. Healey Motorcars was founded in 1945 and built a line of high performance, low volume cars using the four-cylinder Riley… more»

1962 MGA 1600 For $3,000!

This MGA might be a big project, but it’s a good place to start. It’s a 1600 so it has a little more power than the 1500 and also benefits from front disc brakes. Looks like this one even… more»

Rare British Project: 1969 TVR Vixen

After reviving our TVR, I’ve had plenty of dreams about finding another one of these awesome Brits. Sadly, they just aren’t all that common. Our Tasmin was powered by a wonderful Ford V6, but every time… more»

What A Mess! Daimler SP250

I’m afraid that this eBay listing is even worse than most craigslist ones for photos, but I’m still glad Peter R. sent it in to us. The SP250 is an odd duck at best, with looks… more»

The Whole Truth: 1970 Triumph Spitfire

This nose is unique to the MK III Triumph Spitfire. The bumper is raised for new crash regulations and yet retains the chrome strips covering the weld lines along the tops of the fenders, something later cars lack. This Spitfire… more»

5.3 Liters Of Fun: 1972 Jaguar E-Type

I’m not sure if it’s an optical illusion, some type of distortion in the photo or if the front end of the Jaguar E-type is just that long, but that nose looks incredibly long being pulled… more»
