When reader and fellow barn finder Joe B sent us his recent find, we knew we needed to share it. Not because his find is super rare or in incredible condition, but simply because the proceeds are going to a good cause. Joe found this 1971 Porsche 914 in a little old ladies barn, where it had been since 1978. She sadly lost her husband to cancer and is in the process of selling off her property, so the car had to go.
While he was helping her, he found the car parked in the barn. And while it’s in rough shape, he didn’t want to see it go to the scrap yard. He asked if he could buy it and paid the woman $300 for it. He wants to sell the car for whatever he can get, and donate all the money to the American Cancer Society. He doesn’t care about making a profit or recouping his cost, he just wants to see the car go to a good home while helping fight cancer.
Joe’s find is in rough shape, but it could be salvageable. If it is complete, then it’s worth at least $300 for parts alone. It would be sad to see it parted out, but it would not only save another 914′s life, but also help save the life of someone who’s fighting cancer. If your in the market for a 914 or just want to help out, send us an email and we will get you in contact with him. Our special thanks go out to Joe for sharing his find with us and we wish him the best.
