Barn Finds At A Boat Auction!

1950 Chrysler Town and Country

When Barn Finds reader Charlie H. emailed us a link to an upcoming boat show, I expected to see a bunch of boats for sale. I did, but there are also a bunch of cars listed too and a few of them are very interesting indeed! Some of the standouts include a 1950 Chrysler Town & Country Newport Coupe, a 1931 Ford Model A Boat Tail, and a 1962 Triumph TR3. Oh, and there are a bunch of cool old boats too! The auction is scheduled to take place on May 17th in Brookline, New Hampshire. More information can be found here on WoodBoats.org. Considering that this sale is targeted at boat collectors, perhaps there’s a chance to drag home a few four-wheeled bargains? Thanks for the tip Charlie!

    Motto: Alfas and wood boats the perfect match

    WOW,Lots of nice cars.
    Like to have that barrelback project boat too.

    I bought a low mileage SLK at a construction auction and a near new Focus at a computer auction for a fraction of the going price because most folks were looking for construction and computer items. Bet someone will walk away with a similar sweet deal.

    the whole auction would be worth the trip. it will be interesting to see what the tr3, miata and 80’s cobra bring. great find.

    If I felt up to a big project (pun intended) that Cadillac would be great but I think the Miata would be more appropriate to my restoration skills! ^_^

    I’d be interested in the Oliver Tractor that is peeking into the picture of the 1941 Caddy.

    The BSA motorcycle would be my preferance. The boats are real nice too, but I never was much of a boater.

    Bargains? I don’t foresee any. We here in NH are a little more shrewd than ya think.. One of the bigger auction of the past ten years was in Hampton NH. A huge collection of cars and memorabilia.. lots of neon signs etc.. It went for huge money. http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/tag/michael-dingman/

    That 1950 Newport coupe is getting a lot of background discussion at Hemmings:

    Paulie B…I agree with you.
    In NH, you’re not only drawing from a large population of shrewd natives, you’re also drawing shoppers from Maine, VT.,CT, MA., RI, and even New Yorkers who are connected to the state via vacation homes…
    ….the days of cave dwelling New Englanders using human teeth as currency is a thing of the past….there are some very shrewd buyers in this neck of the woods….
    …..Damned sophisticated Yankees….I thought I’d be drivin’ that Cobra home for the princely sum of $50, a butter churn, and 30 beaver pelts…

    My late uncle the wealthy Jacobus Pike was the last person to trade in butter churns and beaver pelts. My aunt Sophistakeena still trades in a number of things. The local police have been wise to her but she usually satisfies their curiosity. My collection of Cobras is still for sale and once a week my nephew Ebben had been going out to put a fresh layer of dust on everything so that the folks from away will think that the cars have been sitting there untouched for years. Last week he got a little carried away and started whipping the left rear quarter panels with a heavy chain. He wanted to simulate loose tire snow chain marks. We stopped him just as he was about to pour some fresh mud and chicken dropping on the front seat. He’s enlisted in the Navy so we won’t see him for awhile.
