Calling all car hunters – production is underway for the next season of Barn Find Hunter and we need your help. Share videos or photos of your barn finds here, Tom will review your submissions and you could be featured in one of our episodes.
What is a barn find? To us, a barn find is a long-forgotten car(s) stashed away, waiting to be revived soon. The more dust, the better.
What to do next:
This is my latest save from the scrap heap. I went to look at an MGB GT project in Nova Scotia and this was sitting all forlorn in the corner of the barn. It was non-running and off the road since 2013 because of frame and body rust. The interior was a petri dish of mold and mildew. The good news was the paint was all original and decent, and it only had 150K KM. Of course I bought it. I now have it running and all the frame and most of the bodywork is done. The interior cleaned up very nicely with the exception of the headliner. With new brakes and tires and a few other details it will be my new winter machine and tow vehicle. I always liked the first gen Disco, and I think this 98 will do nicely!
I didn’t get all the information on my earlier post. The ‘57 mark II belongs to a friend of my wife’s, and rhonda has owned the car since she was a young girl. The interior and paint had been redone prior to it breaking down and being stored in her mothers garage for 20+ years. Thank you for taking the time to go through my bumbling technological ineptness!
