The Best Barn Finds Of 2013!

Twenty Thirteen was jam-packed with amazing finds! We saw everything from a Chevrolet dealer with unsold inventory from the ’50 to the story of a Ferrari that was discovered in a junkyard. We thought it would be fun to make a list of some of our favorite finds from 2013. Take a look and let us know in the comments section which one is your favorite.

#4. Barn Find extraordinaire, Tom Cottor, found this one and was kind enough to share it with us! If there’s every been an incredible barn find tale, this might be it. You wouldn’t ever expect to find a vintage Ferrari in a junkyard, but you’d never dream of finding one with the kind of history that this one has. It’s a longer read, without many photos, but you won’t regret reading it in it’s entirety here!

#3. This one is a personal favorite, and not just because I wrote it, but because of what it is, where it was found and the fantastic photos. For those that haven’t seen it yet, or have forgetten what’s in this truck trailer, I won’t ruin the surprise! You can find out what’s hiding inside here.

#2. The top two spots are a bit different than your typical barn find, as both aren’t just about a car or two that were forgetton about. No, they are both more or less abandoned car dealerships. First up, is the story of an AMC dealership and while most of the cars are AMCs, there’s at least a few surprise finds here that you really should look at. You can read the full story here.

#1. This years top find has to be the Lambrecht collection (which you can read about here), a Chevrolet dealership that seemed to keep every trade-in they ever took in. The story goes that they closed their doors decades ago, with more than a few never sold cars sitting on the showroom floor. Everything was auctioned off, but the story is one we won’t be forgetting any time soon!

There were lots of other great finds unearthed this year, these were just our favorites. If there are ones that you enjoyed more, please let us know in the comments.
