If you get in very fast. The auction ends this afternoon. Oh and it’s in the US.

This is the definition of an amazing barn find. Bought new from the dealer back in 1981, it’s not known whether it was a factory or dealer paint job but I think it looks stunning in red.

The original owner bought it new and drove it just 770 miles before a problem with his knees stopped him getting in and out of the car. So he did what any normal person would do: parked it in his shed with the farm machinery and didn’t touch it for another 31 years!!

He recently decided to get it back on the road, spent some money getting it back into shape, then sold it to a friend who has replaced what’s needed and made it saleable. Now with 981 miles, and looking like new, it’s on Ebay.

At the time of writing it’s at US$42,465 – just under $54,000 NZ dollars.

I love everything about cars! Driving, looking at them, modifying. It's great to see what people do with cars, the different car cultures. If I was rich, my garage would be bigger than my house!
