Two brothers inherit a lifetime collection, see what they have! | Barn Find Hunter - Ep. 69

  • Hunting for old Cars is all about connections, finding people who know people who can give you any lead they can think of. In this case, Tom heads to a familiar part of North Carolina where he has hunted before, he reached out to a former guest of "Barn Find Hunter" and he tells Tom about two brothers who have an eclectic collection of cars that were left to them by their Father. It turned out to be a great lead!

    The Grand National is worth 8k on a good day. None of those cars are worth anything over 2 grand. He talks more bullshit than anything and watched to much TheXvid.

    Driving by on the back roads of Oregon, Came across a 1960 Ford F100 4x4 sweet 292, Ask the lady if she wanted to sell it. She said I gave it away 12 years ago. But it had four flat tires. Apparently the guy couldn't afford 4 tires. She said you can have it.... If you can get off my property in 30 minutes. I asked her do you drink beer? She said she sure does. Well give me 45 minutes. I'll go get a six pack. It will give enough time for my buddy to bring the car trailer over. 30 minutes later put a new battery in it. Pulled the spark plugs, Put it in granny low, first gear. Turn the key. And walked it right up on the trailer using the starter. She asked me when she's drinking her second beer. Where you from boy? I said right here from Oregon. She said I've never seen that done before. Sweetest taste of Henry weinhardt beer i ever drank. And how I love those Granny low gears & Henry weinhardt.& little old ladies😊

    Cars well be there in next century. People always want 10 grand for a car .what they dont realize is it takes 25 k to get it perfect and then you can sell for 30 k. So it is never worth the time or effort unless you can make 15-20 k i didnt see a care here worth more than 3500 to 400o k.

    The buick grand national with 93,000 miles, the old guy want's $20,000. He's about $12000 dollar's to high. I would say in the ball park of 8000 to 9000 thousand dollar's. Where do these people come up with some of those price's????

    When the first thing they show you is a discombobulated Willys Jeepster that looks like it was customized with a Sawzall and some tape, and they act like it's a shiny Cadillac, your expectations for the rest of the encounter are set.

    Met a guy like this back in the depressed times of 2009 who had a 1938 Chrysler Royal coupe. It was in decent orig. shape and he'd started resto on it, but had lost storage and had to sell. He wanted, IIRC, $17K per the window sign, but the books said it wasn't worth more than $6K in that condition. I pointed this out to him and he replied, "Yeah, I just have it 'way up there to see if somebody comes along who'll pay it" (the so-called Greater Fool strategy). Nobody would pay; it was still there a month later until he was kicked out of his temporary parking space at the storage company. I spotted it soon after at an apt. complex a mile away -- prob. his own -- under a shredded blue tarp. This idiot had driven away buyers -- incld. me -- by not pricing realistically from the start. He just did not know how to sell things, and/or was desperate for a big score for other reasons and "couldn't" take a penny less. I'll bet he ended up giving it away for $3300 when his landlord came around for the rent the final time.

    In their own way these clips are self defeating as the give these owners of these pieces of junk the idea that they are worth two- three times what they are actually worth. Most of those “running car s” will never move again with prices of 6500 12000 bucks being asked. If it was 2000 you may sell some

    These high end car auctions like Barrett Jackson and Mechums have everyone thinking they have 100k cars.
    Well they do if you spend 120k on Restoration. They have no idea what it costs to restore a car correctly, shame stuff just rots till they die and kids sell it off. Then it cost twice as much to restore. You see this all the time unfortunately.

    Back in high school my buddy's father had a mint original 67 mercury cougar GT that he got from his grandfather. It sat in the driveway because his garage was full of stuff. People would come up and offer him money for it all the time. Last I heard its still sitting in his driveway but now its completely trashed. Its been rotting for about 15 years.

    It's horrible these old guys just let the cars rot. God knows what vermin have done to the wiring and other soft materials. The owner is more of an automotive crypt keeper than any any kind of collector. The guys who hoard vehicles like this are keeping automotive concentration camps...contentedly watching them waste away. Creepy and Disgusting. Like those cat ladies who have 60 cats in their home and many are starving or diseased. I love it when he says he "restored" a car, yeah right. The host of the show sure has embarrassing gaps in auto knowledge. ID-ing the T-Bird as a '64??? Really? And then thinks it's a 410 ci engine???? That was a Mercury 66-67 engine...the bullet Bird he was looking at was produced from '61-'63 and all that was offered in them during that period was the 390. Anyone who knows Fords at all would know that.

    Does anyone know if all of the Packard/Merlin engines were built in Detroit or somewhere else as well? I know that Continental made some as well. That Merlin engine made the P51 what it was, much to Allison's dismay. I've heard that they were going to put the Merlin in the P38 but Allison lobbied against that and won. Too bad because it seems that the Merlin was the better engine. The Allison with Lindberg's method of running the engine lean in the P38 did very well though. Lindberg's changes increased the P38s range dramatically.

    Notice the hood is rusted through where it was covered and not where it wasn't, that is why you should never lay a cover directly on anything you want to preserve. A cover traps moisture and accelerates decay. Just my opinion I'm sure others may disagree.

These guys are funny and I bet they've got plenty of local racing history tales to boot!!!
