Crazy Barn Finds From Across The Country

There is something magical about discovering a barn find classic car burried deep inside an old structure that had been long forgotten. Heck, I even get really excited just looking at barn find pictures. That is why we started a board on Pinterest dedicated just for Barn Finds. Here are some of my favorites!

1955 Corvettte Barn Find

Here’s a solid 1955 Corvette! It’s hard to imagine a scenario where someone would have put this into a barn a “forgotten” about it.

1965 Mustang Fastback Barn Find

This 1965 Mustang Fastback barn find has definitely seen better days, but it wouldn’t take much to get her back on the road and looking sharp!

Charger Barn Find

This 1970 Dodge Charger RT would make a great restoration project!

Porsche Barn Find

Although not in the best condition, I’m sure the value of this 1953 Porsche 356 1500 fully restored would make this a very worthwile project to restore.

1968 Dodge Charger Barn Find

Here’s a 1968 Charger.

1957 Bel Air Barn Find

You definitely don’t see 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air barn finds very often. This beauty seems to be in great shape as well!

Shelby Cobra barn find

Wow. 1965 Shelby Cobra just sitting in a barn some where. From the looks of it, I’m guessing this isn’t a kit either. This folks, is the real deal.

If anyone has any information about any of these barn finds or any restoration updates from them, we would love to hear! Have you ever come across a barn find? Tell us the story in the comments!

    ’55 Corvettes DO NOT LOOK LIKE THIS! This is obviously a ’56. I’d take the Porsche cabriolet-Huge dollars restored!

    65 Cobra no doubt if its a real one , worth 5 times as much as any other car there , could sell it and buy 3 new vettes.

    This does happen. A friend has a 1970 mustang. Nothing fancy, just a sport roof, no mach 1, dog dish hub caps, no p/s, no p/b, no luxury options. It does have a 428 super cobra jet, shaker hood, with the drag pak option, and 13,000 original miles. He is now in a nursing home. Will the car be forgotten?

      Only if YOU let it be forgotten. As a friend to this person, and hopefully a ‘car guy’ as well, it is your duty to keep her from being just another forgotten jewel left in a barn to rot. My older brother has a 63′ Ford Gallaxie Convertible. Our Uncle Roger gave it to him, who used to dragrace it back in the day but because of health issues he went blind, and gave it my brother who is a huge car nut, so it wouldn’t suffer the fate of being forgotten. But alas, it sits in his garage and has been for at least ten years and rots away. It’s sad. If I had the means, I would save her myself. If you have the means, you need to save that Mustang!

    I found a 1965 factory turbocharged 4 speed 2 door hard top Corvair in a barn, hadn’t been run in 10 years its been my daily driver for a year or so, and have been slowly restoring it, getting ready for paint.

    Back in about 1980-something my dad rescued a 1970 Olds 442 W30 hardtop that his best friend had found sitting in the middle of a field. Car was rusitng a little, it hadn’t been driven in about 10 years (by the registration on the plates). He and his buddy tracked down the guy who owned the field bought the car, and it sits in our garage now.
