Hagerty Unearths The Ultimate Classic Car Barn Find

Hagerty Unearths The Ultimate Classic Car Barn Find There are barn finds, and then there’s this. Down an unmarked, unpaved road in America lurks a collection of classic vehicles the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Meet Billy Eubanks. He’s spent 50 years collecting an incredible number of vehicles, but not for financial benefit. Instead, he's gradually built up a throng of iconic machines because of an automotive obsession. The cars in storage remain seriously impressive. When Hagerty's Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter recently paid the collection a visit, even his jaw had to be picked up off the floor.

The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is the last year of the first-generation run of the Corvette. It’s also evident how much of a precursor the 1962 was for the ultra-popular Sting Ray body style that would soon follow. Not only that, it was the last year of the solid-axle Corvettes, as they would turn over into a rear-independent suspension layout in 1963 - something the Corvette has become well-known for over the decades since. This is all a setup to explain why the 1962 Corvette was such a special car, and why finding one is always a treat for any collector, but it takes a special kind of collector to see the potential in this barn find.

Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA

Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA It’s a one-of-one optioned vehicle to boot. You read that right. This is a one-of-one 1967 Ford Mustang GTA convertible with the Marti report to back it up. It’s a super rare find and is currently for sale through Shelton Classics in North Carolina for $34,995. It has just 2,182 original miles on the odometer, which means this unique example has its entire life ahead of it. Although most of the first-gen Mustangs featured most of the same design elements, each year received some slight upgrades.

This 1962 Corvette barn find up for grabs, is an all original Corvette, that's unrestored that Charlie's Classic Cars found in a barn in Baldwin County, Alabama. The Corvette is original paint, interior, drivetrain. The car has been sitting in the same spot since 1984, and they just recently cranked the car, and gotten it to where it will run and drive now under its own power.

The lady that the car came from actually bought the car with her late husband in 1964. When the car was parked in 1984, the owner’s husband would crank the car and drive it around the block once a year to just keep everything oiled up, until his death about 8 years ago.

The only things missing on the car is the original wheels, but it still has the original spare tire and wheel, radio, and transmission shifter. This Vette is a factory 327 cubic-inch engine that was factory rated as priding 250-horsepower. Backing the V8 engine is a three-speed manual transmission, so this was made to be a driver’s car. The car is also an original wonder bar radio car and factory two top car, meaning it has both a hard top and soft convertible top.

Watch: 36 Chevy Corvettes Barn Find

Watch: 36 Chevy Corvettes Barn Find The collection will be given away later this year. People have been amazed at the story of how 36 Chevrolet Corvettes, one from the 1953 to 1989 model years, were discovered hidden away in New York City. Won by a man from Long Island in a nationwide contest put on by VH1, these cars were immediately purchased by an eccentric graphic designer from NYC, then hidden away and essentially never seen again. Now that they’re public again, these ‘Vettes are worth some serious cash and they’re going to be auctioned later this summer.
