Spacious Barn Houses 25 Unreleased Classics, They’re Only $80K. can be for you

Located in Muir, Michigan, this sprawling barn contains 25 classics built from 1959 to 1975. With a few minor exceptions, we’re looking at cars developed and sold during some of the best years of the American auto industry. And according to the seller, they are all original and unrestricted.

So what’s the deal with this offer, you ask? Apparently, the owner of this barn has been hoarding cars for almost 40 years. At 88, he is no longer interested in getting them back on the road and decided to let them all go. And it’s only a package deal, which means you’ll have to buy all 25 of them. The owner is selling them for $80,000, a little over half of their estimated, collective NADA value.

But what’s really in this barn? Well, the ad comes with very little information. The brief mentions that the 25-vehicle collection includes “two fire engines” and their position varies. “From fair to good.” The seller also says that they have all been parked 30 to 40 years ago, so you shouldn’t expect them to last.

There’s no list to run, but the photos give us some clues as to what’s on the table. A quick glance reveals that the seller is a big fan of the Lincoln Continental. I saw at least six of them, including a cool, 1959 Mark IV hardtop. There’s also a 1960’s Mark V hardtop and some convertibles from 1961. If you’re a fan of the new Continental models, the collection also includes a 1966 drop-top and a 1975 Mark IV.

Oldsmobiles from the 1960s are also parked there, including 1968 Cutlass and 1969 Convertibles. The 1969 Chrysler Imperial is the most impressive vehicle ever built in this barn and probably also one of the rarest. A 1972 Buick Riviera shows the rear end of its boat-tail next to a car hidden under a tarp. There is also a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. It is very pale and surprisingly clean. In the end, a white 1972 Cadillac Eldorado rounds out the full-size car list.

The only other vehicle shown in the photos is a 1940s four-door that I am unable to identify. One of the fire trucks is also featured, but that’s about it. In total, the ad only includes photos of 14 cars, so 11 of them remain a mystery.

Given all of the above, it’s difficult to assess whether the seller’s $150K estimate for the entire collection is reasonable. But the owner will provide additional information upon request, and I think he can put everything on a list.

But even then, 25 cars for $80,000 is $3,200 per vehicle, which isn’t bad because some of them cost more than that. If you’re a fan of the Lincoln Continental or just want to be a classic car collector overnight, you’ll want to check it out. The collection is listed on Hemmings Classifieds.
