Hoard Of Classics Found In A Factory!

Factory Finds

From Terry L – Tucked away in rural southern Minnesota inside a derelict former Egg Processing Plant was a hoard of cars from the 40’s to the 70’s. Along with the cars were several Gaylord Boxes full of hubcaps, piles of old mag wheels, a room full of engines including several monster front drive set ups from GM and a few 440 Chrysler products. In addition to car stuff, the building was full of old machine tools and processing equipment and just a bunch of junk. The owner had allowed the building to fall into disrepair. The many holes in the roof provided the only light into the building. They also allowed in the many seasons of Minnesota weather. The building was sold and the desirable cars were sold to one buyer, everything else went into scrap metal and garbage dumpsters. This happened just in the nick of time, as a spring storm blew down large sections of block wall! The cars in the photos are what’s left. Nothing too special but I do like the Riviera.

Seller's Number

It seems everything that was left over after the highly desirable cars were sold is now sitting outside and is still up for sale. You can contact the seller (Stan) by phone at the number above. I want to thank Terry for letting us know about this find! While I don’t see anything particularly collectable, if the prices are right I wouldn’t mind taking a look, especially at the Buick. I’m also highly intrigued by the old truck stuffed into its own bed! How about you? Do you see anything you’d like to have?

    No pictures of the Camaro ? Any ideas what year it is ?

    The glass in that Astroroof on the Eldorado is worth more than the whole car.

    That Mercury convertible doesn’t look too bad. Find a parts car with an intact front end, and it could be a worthwhile project. The Buick also has possibilities, but the others do nothing for me.

    What’s up with the collapsed front end on the Caddy? It looks like a deflated air suspension but these didn’t have that AFAIK. Broken spring? Yikes.

    WHY disassemble the cab off the 70’s Ford pickup then throw everything in the bed ??? I hate to see old trucks treated like that, they are so useful but some people don’t get it.

    The Camaro reminds me of the first car I bought brand new – a 1981 auto with 6 cylinder. I was young, wanted something new and sporty, but couldn’t afford a Z/28. SO, I ordered one with all the dress-up options, and in black. It was all show and no go, which was fine for me, back then.
    Now, all of these cars are gone and the only ones left are the Z’s.
