Todays jewel is a Classic Car Barn Find up in the Rocky Mountains, where the dry air up there means cars, even if abandoned for decades outside just dont suffer from rust the same way as they do elsewhere.
Classic car barn finds are exciting because until the barn doors are opened for the camera a viewer like ourselves doesn’t know what treasures aretucked away in there , or what sort of condition they might be in.
Many of these cars will be in need of a total restoration but the big plus with classic car barn finds is the cars are generally complete.
This really is a major advantage as it will save heaps time and money searching for those missing bits, big or small.
A little further along the road into Denver is a yard with a mix of unusual and more common collectible classic cars for sale at what I consider very reasonable prices.
Of particular interest is a Nash breakdown truck with just 24,000 miles up and made at a guess during the 1950′. A rare beast as Nash only ever made a small number of these, and were sold new only to Nash Dealers.
This Nash brekdown truck came about as apparently Nash didn’t want any of its cars that broke down or crashed being seen towed by a common Ford, Chevy or GMC. Interesting reason.
Another car of interest for sale is a 1961 Chrysler 2 door, a rare model in nice condition.
Enjoy this video by Tom Cotter, it is one of many he very professionally produces as he cruises around in his trusty beautiful 1939 Ford Woodie searching out interesting cars to record and report on.
How about a ’62 Porsche with 7,000 miles, or a genuine Factory Formula Ford?
