This 1973 DeTomaso Pantera is claimed to have covered just 8,315 miles since new. The seller also states that it has been in the possession of the same owner since 1974, but beyond that they do not give many details. There is a number listed though, so you had better give them a call if you are in the market for a Pantera. The car is located in Fort Worth, Texas and is listed here on eBay with bidding at $25,100.

For one day in July everything shuts down in my hometown and everyone attends a big parade. There are plenty of floats and candy, but my favorite part has always been the classic cars. Sometimes a beauty queen or politician would be in the back, but that did not interest me much. I was excited to see these pristine classics because their owners only brought them out once a year. This 1958 Dodge Coronet is just one of those cars and it only has 9,369 miles on the odometer to prove it. The car is located in Northbrook, Illinois and is listed for sale on eBay with bidding currently at $3,550. Read more »
With summer here, we could all use a little British roadster for those warm nights. There are many to choose from, but one of our favorites is the Triumph TR6. They offer adequate power, ample leg room, and clean lines. Everyone has taken notice of this great sports car though and it can be tough to pick up a good one cheap. Well, we just found this 1970 TR6 on eBay with a BIN price of $6,800. It is located in Westerly, Rhode Island and could end up being a bargain. You be the judge… Read more »
It has been one year since we launched Barn Finds in 2011! Some very interesting automobiles have graced these pages in that time.

When Pontiac released the GTO in 1964, it instantly became one of the most sought after muscle cars. The GTO quickly gained a cult following and still has quite the following today. It isn’t often that we come across a barn (or in this case, storage unit) find GTO, so when we do, we tend to get excited about it. This goat has been in storage for 31 years and is in need of a new home, hopefully to someone that will get it back on the road. The seller has listed it here on eBay, with a current bid of $6,600.
Back in the sixties, BMC decided they needed to replace the outdated Austin-Healey 3000. They wanted something more modern which would meet crash standards. They already had the MGB in production, so they had the bright idea of shoving an inline-six in it and calling it an Austin-Healey. Well, Donald didn’t take too kindly to resulting car, so they called it a MGC instead and started production. This 1968 MGC project is currently list here on eBay with bidding at $4,050 and only two days left. Read more »
Today America lacks a truly high-end luxury automobile brand, but this wasn’t always so. In the early part of the 1900′s there were many manufactures that were building luxury cars that more then rivaled their foreign competitors. However by the 1930′s, if you were in the market for a luxury car and you didn’t want to buy foreign you really only had one option, Packard. At one time this 1932 Packard 902 Victoria Convertible was one of the most luxurious cars money could buy, but after a long stay in a barn it’s in need of a complete restoration. Listed here on eBay with an asking price of $67,500 it will be hard for anyone to come out ahead on this project. Then again, the last one to sell at auction sold for nearly double that…
We have had the pleasure of featuring several of Allard’s K series roadsters, but as of yet we have never come across the first generation of K cars, the K1. That’s probably because Allard only built 151 K1s in a three year span and Allard records show that only 3 were shipped to the States. This one is rough condition and needs a complete restoration, but it is being auctioned off with no reserve. These cars don’t change hands often, so this is a rare opportunity to own a rare Allard.
I threw up a little in my mouth when I first saw this 1959 Abarth 750 Record Monza. After swallowing, I started to get angry… Really angry. Why would anyone do this? Sure it is small and based on a Fiat, but this thoroughbred doesn’t deserve this sort of treatment! I recomposed myself and started to read the auction description. Then things started to make sense. I am still a little upset, but there is a actually a reason for that monstrosity of a spoiler. The asking price is not realistic, but it is worth taking a look for a good laugh. Read more »
It amazes us to see how well prewar American cars were built, take this 1932 Ford Model 18 Tudor for example. We’ve seen countless cars half this age that are rusted to the point of not being identifiable, yet this 80 year old Ford is still solid and likely still wearing the original paint. This car would be a great starting point for everything from a full restore to a customized rod. If you’ve been looking for a great ’32 Ford V8 this car is currently being offered on eBay with an optimistic starting bid of $35,000.
