Not all great automotive discoveries are made as the result of much research and hunting. Many are actually made on accident. Take reader Chad P’s Datsun barn find for example. Here is the tale in Chad’s own words…
“About four years ago my Dad and I were approached by an employee concerning an ‘old’ roadster her dad had in the barn. It turned out to be a 1967 Datsun 1600 Fairlady. It was in pretty rough shape, but we bought it for $600.”
“It was fun, as we had no idea what the car was. We had never seen one before. It ended up being a massive frame off project that turned out to be an amazing little roadster that is now in better shape than when it came off the boat!”
“I know it’s not rare car, but we have before and after pictures, and it’s a fun story of a true barn find. Probably shouldn’t have invested this much time and money, but… that’s the passion for cars for ya!” Thanks for sharing this with us Chad. The car looks great now and has to be a ton of fun. We all wish you the best of luck with your future finds.
