What Makes True Barn Find.
A Barn Find is regarded a classic car or motorcycle that has been discovered, usually in a run down condition and not fit for the road. The vehicle is normally advertised as a used car for sale under the term Barn Find which 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. In many cases the cars are often driven in and forgotten about by the owners.
Sadly many stories are down to old age or ill health of the owner, or just and owner that loves the vehicle and can't part with it. In some lucky cars the car is driven in in pristine condition and with some new fuel and a fresh battery they car.
Just Another Car Find
Correctly used, generally 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 used car that has been simply stored for a few years and never forgotten and certainly not any kind of car find.
A Barn find car 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 Ferrari 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 these rediscovered cars were usually restored to their former glory close to factory condition. However, with trends always changing they are now more restored sympathetically to avoid removing evidence of the car's history. This seems 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 in today market.
