‘Barn Find’ Vintage Car Collection

Jan 22, 2019

France might be a land full of serene hillsides and smooth language, but apparently, it’s also home to a pretty extensive car collection — one that’s been sitting in a barn for over half a century. In a surprising turn of events, a French auctioneer has unveiled an 81-vehicle “barn find” that was set to be auctioned off on January 20 — and based off of the most notable autos in the collection, it’s safe to say that there are more than a few diverse finds.

Housed within the French countryside and surrounded by a menagerie of foliage and trees, the 81-car collection is one of the largest vehicle recoveries ever, with models ranging from the ‘50s all the way into the ‘80s. A staggering selection of rare and unique vehicles can be found among the dirt and dust, including a coveted 48,000-mile Lamborghini Miura P400 that’s expected to fetch upward of $456,000, a Series 1 Jaguar E Type Coupe, C3 Corvette T-Top, and a Ford Anglia. Alongside these insanely rare vehicles, a variety of European and American classics lay strewn among the weeds — Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Cadillac, and Lincoln, as well as a generous selection of offerings from other prominent and classic manufacturers round out the immense collection.
