The collection includes somewhat common cars from the 1950s, but there are a few rare gems to talk about as well. Go to the 30-second mark in the video below and you’ll see a 1920s, cream two-door coupe. That’s a very cool Dodge from the Dodge Brothers era before the company was acquired by the Chrysler Corporation in 1928. It even features the old emblem with the six-pointed star logo and seems to be in decent shape for a 100-year-old car.
There are a couple of other pre-WWII vehicles in there, including a 1935 Ford five-window coupe and what seems to be a Model A from the 1920s. They’re all parked alongside newer automobiles, including a 1962 Pontiac LeMans drop-top and a 1950s Buick Special. The latter is finished in a very desirable two-tone, light blue livery, but it has a few rust holes.
The barn was also home to a mysterious, yellow, phaeton-style car. You can see it at the 1:30-minute mark. It could be from the 1910s, but it’s difficult to identify it in the absence of a front radiator and badge. It’s not a Ford Model T and it looks too small for a Pierce-Arrow. But it’s most likely built by a company that’s no longer on the market. If you know what it is, drop me a line in the comments below.
The collection expands beyond the barn. There are a couple of old 1960s pickup trucks on the front lawn plus a few more vehicles in the backyard. There’s also an old boat in there, but it might not be for sale. On top of that, the owner auctioned off quite a few engines, including an old flathead V8 and a four-cylinder Kaiser (maybe from a Henry?). I haven’t seen one of these in a very long time.
Well, all I can do is hope that every car and engine will end up in a good home and that most of them will find their way on public roads after decades of sitting in the dark.
