Amazing Alfa Romeo Barn Find Uncovered!

Our friends over at LBI Limited let us know about a barn find they just unearthed. There were five Alfa Romeos in this collection and two of the cars had been parked for 40 years! Be sure to check out all the photos from the day they were all pulled out. Here’s the story in Adolfo’s own words – “We received a tip from a friend over a year ago about some old Alfa Romeos in a barn located in central Pennsylvania. Typically leads like this rarely amount to anything but this find was a surprising exception and the timing was right because the owner was ready to sell…”

“The family member which he inherited the cars from quite literally entombed three of the five Alfas by building a barn around the cars then sealing them inside with 2×4’s and plywood/siding where there would normally be openings for the car to come in and out. The three entombed cars were a 1967 Giulia, 1969 Berlina, and 1976 Alfetta.”

“In the second “barn”, more like a pole building were the two more desirable cars – a 59 Giulietta Sprint and 59 Giulietta Spider. Both were California cars that ran when parked; 40 years ago!”

These cars are now for sale so be sure to contact LBI Limited if you’re interested in any of them. We hope they all go to good homes. Thanks for sharing this awesome find with us Adolfo!

    Looks to me they put good walls up and forgot to put a roof on the building. Lots of rust there I think.

    Yea Bob hard to say if its dirt floors but wet concrete is as bad if not worse. Wet and damp. Hope there’s something there that can be restored. Good luck and stay safe.

    Is the sprint & spider a Veloce? No engine compartment photos. Dang, I would take these in a heart beat if I could.

    I just posted and it didn´t stick, so apologies if this is a double post.

    A lot to like here. Everything can be restored, whether the berlina and Alfetta have enough commercial value to do so is hard to say, but all parts are available and the cars look complete.

    All Alfa enthusiasts have seen much worse places to start.

    I just don’t get the Prius cry, babies. Cars like this are gold. Just glad that none of the above ever get over the top cars like these…In my world, these cars are all up for RESTORATION. Go away cry, babies. Oh, I forgot I came in from the 100 temp. and gas welding on a 1962 MGA fender and these guys are all basement bound computer geeks, Sorry!

      Steve…take a break and I’ll cover you outside where I think we are at 95 here in Big D.

      Oh, you are such a man. The rest of us are certainly pussies. Now go back under your rock.

    Looks as if the “restoration” on the Sprint stalled after removing the taillights, headlights, grill and front bumper. But let’s not get into the difference between collectors and hoarders.

    It sure would be fun to be the guy opening that door after 40 years!! Kind of like opening the pyramids at Giza and seeing king tut for the first time in 3000 years!! It would be cool to see some pictures of the motor compartments and the underside before the bidding!!
