Minnesota Barn Find Car Collection
Corvettes and Customs has unearthed an amazing collection of classic cars on a farm in Minn. Over 20 vintage automobiles from the 1940’s to the 1960’s in various stages of restoration are hiding in 3 barns just waiting for someone to take them home and give them new life.
This collection was started many years ago by the client’s father who had an eye for the upper class pre war and post war American cars. Some of the cars he got around to restoring before he passed away over 20 years ago. Some were not in need of restoration and are very rare examples of how cars were built back in the hay day of Cadillac, Lincoln, Plymouth, Pontiac and Oldsmobile.
Among the gems of this collection is an older restored 1955 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible worth over $100,000 all on it’s own! A beautiful 1967 Lincoln Continental 4 door convertible sits in it’s all original survivor glory next to an all original 1957 Cadillac El Dorado 2 door hard top from California! These cars are just waiting to be driven away!
Some of the mid range complete cars, or near complete, are a 1939 Plymouth 2 door Cabriolet, a 1938 Oldsmobile Long Nose Business Coupe and an amazing 1940 (restored) La Salle 4 door. On another property sits a Crown Party Bus conversion with fine leather seating, and a opening ramp in the back to load a couple motorcycles.
Some of the unrestored and project cars include Pontiac Bonneville and Catalina hard tops and convertibles from the early 1960’s. These cars were built for late night and beach cruising. Other interesting restoration projects include a 1940 Cadillac La Salle 4 door cabriolet (1 of 75 built) and a 1941 Cadillac limousine.
Besides the high end cars there are also some hot rod and rat rod bodies and chassis’ just waiting to be modded out. A donor car with a running engine and trans, and a weekend with some friends. could turn these forgotten classics into a low cost rat rod that will turn as many heads as the high end gems!
In total, there is about $400,000 worth of classic American steel sitting in these barns as is. The profit potential in restorations could be double that amount. Either way, one lucky profiteer will lay down the cash to buy the bundle at an amazing price below market value offered by the owner.
