What Makes True Barn Find.
A barn find is a classic car or motorcycle that has been discovered, usually in a run down condition and not fit for the road. The term Barn Find comes from their tendency to be found in un-visited buildings such as barns, sheds, carports and outbuildings where they have been stored for many years, often driven in and forgotten about by the owners. The term usually applies to vehicles that are rare and valuable, and which are consequently of great interest to car collectors and enthusiasts despite their poor condition. However the term has now be grabbed by many in an attempt to inflate the value of a car that has been simply stored for a few years.
Barn finds can reach very high prices when sold. An example of this was a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS spider that sold for US$2.1 million in January 2014. Stored in a garage since 1969 after suffered engine fire. The Ferrar was only rediscovered some 44 years later. Despite the damage, it sold for more than a fully restored example in the previous year.
In the past barn find cars were usually restored to their former glory close to factory condition. However, with trends always changing they are mow more restored sympathetically to avoid removing evidence of the car's history. This seem to place greater value on the original features the vehicle retains, even if they're in poor condition. In some cases, complete restoration can actually reduce a car's value.
