Barn & Field Cars

1969 Camaro SS. From what I can tell, it was a 4 speed big block car with a deluxe houndstooth interior. Obviously it's been sitting for awhile. Property owner said it was wrecked in 1974 with no insurance. Car was found in Northern Manitoba, Canada. Also spotted was a 1937 Plymouth coupe in the background.
This 1971 340 Cuda has been sitting in plain sight in Arlington Oregon for decades. You can see it from the Freeway. The owner will not sell even though the car deteriorates a little more every year.  - Rocky Mikesell
I found a 1956 Nash Ambassador Cross Country Special V8, 2-door hard top in my little north central Florida town. I think it's in excellent, restorable condition. It even has a "Farina" emblem on the front fender.
These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago in NE Georgia. All of the trucks are brought back from Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas (very little rust) and are mostly pre-1960. I've purchased 3 different trucks in the past and this time I was there to buy a 1955 Chevy LCF (COE) and a 1957 Dodge COE.
It took years to finally see this 1967 Corvette 2 top convertible and two weeks to own it. 327/300hp 4 speed and frame rust. It had not run in 25 years. Tune up, flush fuel/cooling system and replace brakes etc. Started and drove well.
Reader Bill Ward sent in this barn find. "I just bought this old girl. She'd been sitting in a shed since 1991. I did the kingpins, brakes shoes and fitted a new battery and tyres and away we go. She's a 1937 Willys sedan, sold new in New Zealand for 280 pounds (about $520)."
"This 1934 Chrysler Plymouth Deluxe Roadster was an Australian export model bodied by Holden in 1934 at the Woodville plant South Australia. It had been stored in a barn since 1973. What a find!  I thought some of your readers would appreciate seeing a genuine barn find."
Reader Stan Kidwell has seen these rods around Boise, ID. "I don't know if these really fit in the Barn and Field Car Section, but thought readers might find them interesting. The unmodified pickup is a daily driver, but the street rod hasn't been moved for quite a while."  
These trucks and cars are not two miles from where I was born and raised and now live. They have been sitting there hidden from view since back in the late '60's and I never knew it until a couple of years ago. The owner has since sold part of them. Sure is a shame that they have gotten to the shape they are in.
Posted February 6, 2013 - We found this Phaeton on the back corner of our farm in DeWitt County TX with 1940 tags.
