A collection of hidden classic cars comes out of the barn and includes rare gems
The collection includes some fairly common cars from the 1950s, but there are also a few rare gems worth talking about. For example, go to the 30 second mark in the video below, and you will see a cream two-door coupe from the 1920s. This is a very cool Dodge from the Dodge Brothers era before Chrysler Corporation acquired it. the company in 1928. It even sports the old emblem with the six-pointed star logo and appears to have a decent shape for a century-old car.
There are a few other pre-WWII vehicles including a 1935 five-window Ford coupe and what appears to be a 1920s Model A. They are all parked next to newer cars including a Pontiac. LeMans from 1962 and a Buick Special from the 1950s. The latter is finished in a very desirable two-tone light blue livery, but it does have a few rust holes.
The barn also housed a mysterious yellow phaeton-style car. You can see it after 1h30. It could be from the 1910s, but it’s difficult to identify it without a front radiator and badge. It’s not a Ford Model T, and it looks too small for a Pierce-Arrow. But it is most likely being built by a company that is no longer in the market. If you know what this is, drop me a line in the comments below.
The collection extends beyond the barn. There are a few old pickup trucks from the 1960s on the front lawn, as well as a few other vehicles in the backyard. There is also an old boat in there, but it may not be for sale. On top of that, the owner auctioned off a number of engines, including an old flathead V8 and a four-cylinder Kaiser (maybe from a Henry?). I haven’t seen one for a very long time.
Well, all I can do is hope that every car and engine ends up in a good home, and most of them find their way onto public roads after decades of being in the dark.
