Italian Barn Finds

Cheap Exotic? 1990 Chrysler TC By Maserati

Here’s another in our Cheap Exotic series. It’s a shame that these cars weren’t ready for the market before the new LeBaron was, I think it could have made all the difference. As it was, people couldn’t see paying… more»

Cheap Exotic? 2005 Maserati Quattoporte

This 2005 Maserati Quattroporte is much newer than what we usually show here at Barn Finds. It’s twenty years newer than the previous newest Quattroporte that we’ve shown in the past but I have a feeling that Maserati ownership… more»

Two Owner Barn Find: 1966 Maserati Sebring

This 1966 Maserati Sebring II is a car that raises a few questions. It is a two-owner vehicle that has spent years parked in a barn. While a life of seclusion has taken a toll on the paint, it… more»

Stored 35 Years: 1958 BMW Isetta 300

That’s a big storage unit for such a small car, I wish I had that much spare room. We have seen many Isettas on Barn Finds over the years and this is one of the most Barn Find’y ones… more»

Final Year: 1982 Lancia Beta Zagato

Lancia was an Italian automaker whose first car came out in 1909. They became part of Fiat in 1969 with only one Lancia product still in production today. Lancia never had a big presence in the US, with its… more»

Rare Italian Minivan: 1967 Fiat 850 Familiare Pullmino

I know what a Fiat 850 looks like, a good friend that had one when we were in high school. But I’ll admit, I’ve never seen one wearing what looks like a ’60s Ford Econoline cab over a set… more»

Step Nose Barn Find: 1967 Alfa Romeo GTV

As a long time Alfa Romeo fan, I’ve long pinned after a  Giulia Sprint GT, but not just any GT. Alfa offered the GT in several trim levels, with the Veloce being the sportier option (there was also an… more»

Estate Sale Find: 1973 Citroen SM

Certainly one of the most exotic, unusual, sleek, sexy, unusual, unusual, and unusual cars maybe of all time, this 1973 Citroen SM is a great looking example of a very unusual car. It’s listed here on craigslist – which… more»

31K Miles! 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6

This is a very nice combination, a low mileage car in excellent condition and a very thorough listing, two items that don’t intersect often enough. One of only 1,100 Alfa Romeo GTV6s destined for the U.S. market place in… more»

Too Nice to Part? 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6

The seller calls this 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6 a parts car, but it seems far better than that – and it’s priced as being more than that, too. The description reads more like a worthwhile restoration project than a… more»

VW-Powered Kit Car: 1984 Puma GTC

Puma was a sports car manufacturer that built cars and trucks in Brazil from 1964 to 1999. One of its products was the GTC, which was the Spyder version of their GT coupe. Brazilian-made Puma’s used DKW engines at… more»

Reasonably Priced! 1982 Lancia Zagato

When you look at FCA’s current brands, soon to be enhanced by their PSA merger, Lancia is the one marque that has shrunk, considerably, from the “carscape”. It’s still around, of course, but limited to a single Ypsilon model… more»

Incredible Garage Find: 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900C Cabriolet

This 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900C represents an incredible discovery, as it’s one of just 88 made and retains its original, numbers-matching Tipo 1308 engine. The Alfa comes with a fantastic story that is the stuff of every car guy… more»

Build It Your Way: No Reserve 1965 Lancia Fulvia

This 1965 Lancia Fulvia is a total project, but one that looks worthy of restoration. Plus, it has the notoriety of being a right-hand drive model, indicating it was never intended for sale in the U.S. market – if… more»

Gray Market 2+2: 1979 Ferrari 400GT

Despite looking similar to the later 400i, this is actually a gray market 1979 Ferrari 400 GT, equipped with a V12 and five-speed manual transmission. It’s a classic 2+2 design in the Ferrari tradition, designed for gobbling up long… more»

One Owner: 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS

For those of us who can clearly remember the 1980s, one of the most iconic cars to grace our tv screens regularly was the red Ferrari 308 GTS driven by Tom Selleck in the series Magnum, P.I. I can’t… more»
