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

  • Published on Dec 4, 2019
  • 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!

    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.

    If you want your cars to sell at those prices you need to keep them original and in good condition

    Looks like they just took down a bunch of big old advertising signs off that barn in back of them on the closing shot. Selling off our kids inheritance, lol!!! These guys are funny and I bet they've got plenty of local racing history tales to boot!!! Be a nice segment to do, old bench racing stories,cuz unless they're documented,we lose that history with every passing elder,sadly. Much like these old beautys to rot,rust and the crusher. Thanks again Tom and crew!!!!

    Nostalgia trumps logic.Nice models ,but not worth sinking all that money into a car that will never give you any financial returns. These guys will never live long enough to see those cars sell,but then maybe they have priced them not to sell.Who knows.

    I noticed in a lot of videos you give suggestions on how to find some of these old cars and who to talk to etc... a good way to do it that I found also is Google Earth. find a town you want to go to and scan the hell out of it!
    I found some rare old pickup trucks that way.

    No prices given for good fair or concourse conditions of any of the cars. I think the inheritance owners know the price of a dollar but not the price of what is mostly considered junk and none-restorable. This was sad and anticlimactic in the end... nothing to look forward to. No purchases by Hagerty. There are no magic Harry Potter wands.

    I love the '51 Customline. We called them the twinspinner here in New Zealand because they had the two bullet like shapes in the front. When a bullet leaves the barrel it spins in transit hence the Twinspinner. The '46 had a single spinner on the front.

    They all run but I guarantee they won’t start due to YEARS OF SITTING, it’s gonna take hours to get each and every one of them to run, fuel lines I’m sure are shot carbs are shot gas tanks are shot and points are shot as well
