Canadian Barn Find: Fords, Chevrolets, And More!

For reasons unknown, a lifetime gathering of at least 10 cars and trucks have found their way into a drafty old barn in London, Ontario. Several have already been marked as sold, but a few still remain. This place looks like a Mike & Frank goldmine from American Pickers! No prices are stated; best offer takes one or all! These vehicles are available here on Kijiji, a Canadian online classifieds site.

Four of the long-forgotten Detroit iron are Chevrolets, three are Fords and one each for the Buick, Mercury, and Studebaker camps. The oldest one is from 1948 and the newest 1983. We’re told many of them were running when they went into the barn and some are more complete than others. While many are likely just parts cars, others might run again (like the Stude and the ’83 Chevy).

Here we go:

1948 Ford F68: cab only. (SOLD)

1933 Buick: 4 door sedan

1937 Ford Tudor (SOLD)

1941 Ford: 2-door coupe (SOLD)

1942 Chevrolet: 2-door sedan (SOLD)

1946 Chevrolet: 4-door sedan (SOLD)

1950 Studebaker Champion: 2-door sedan

1950 Mercury M68: ¾- ton pickup (SOLD)

1962 Chevrolet Corvair: 4 door sedan (SOLD)

1983 Chevrolet Caprice: 4-door sedan

And if you are into Fords, there are miscellaneous parts for Blue Oval cars.

    “Collector”, “hoarder”, “lazy guy with a barn”, you decide. If this is his classic auto legacy, well, it’s not too impressive.

    Now that’s not to say he didn’t leave some really good stuff….it just isn’t for sale here.

      Look at the studebaker. Rust through all over that rr fender. Ontario is probably the WORST place for rust in NA.

        My exact thought. That Stude is nothing but a rusted out hulk with “cancer” that will require MAJOR body work to just keep out the rain.

    Being from Ontario, Canada. I’d be suprised if the metal worm hasn’t digested most of these cars before they were ever parked in the barn. For that reason, I’ll pass.

      I understand that is true for ontario & everything east of there, but salt wasn’t used much in the rest of Kanada, so I have been told.

        Saskatchewan still doesn’t use salt and there are plenty of really good cars and trucks to be found.

        Ummmm – – – Saskatchewan sure as heck does use Salt or salt by products mixed with sand on the roads – – – the red stuff used frequently is potash tailings mixed with sand – – – Potash tailings are salt- – – comes from those enormous piles of red-ish stuff you see piled on the mines property
        AND – – we have our share of rust buckets out west – – – here in Saskatchewan.

    ‘…Oldest is 1948…”

    And there is a 1933 Buick and 4 others earlier than ’48 listed?
