The Chevrolet El Camino has always been an interesting, yet confusing vehicle for us. It’s like a mullet, business in the front and party in the back. Don’t get us wrong, we like El Caminos, especially when they have a big V8 in them. This 1965 El Camino was special ordered with the high output V8 and a 4 speed manual. After spending the first 47 years of its life in California, it has made its way to Kansas City, Kansas, where it is now being offered here on eBay.
In the late ’60s Ford’s Mustang was in need of a power increase to compete with all the new Pony cars entering the market. The choice was made to offer several new engine options. Two of the most infamous options were the Boss 302 and Boss 429, which are now some of the most sought after Mustangs. This 1970 Boss 302 was supposedly in the original owner’s garage for 25 years and is now being offered here on eBay by the second owner.
If we could give any manufacture an award for being innovative at all cost, it would have to go to Cord Corporation. They put innovation before profitability and created some of America’s best looking and most innovative cars. Sadly, the company built very few, but it means the ones they did are valuable. The seller of this 1936 Cord 810 Westchester claims their reserve is set very low, so this Cord could end up being a bargain. Find it here on eBay.

A car’s past can have a profound impact on its value, especially if it had important or interesting race history. You would think with all of today’s technology, finding that history would be easy, but that isn’t always the case. A friend of reader Mike C recently found this 1957 Corvette drag car and asked him to tackle rebuilding the car. Mike is in need of our help with tracking down its history.
It amazes us some of the places people have stored cars. Places like barns, garages, and storage units make sense, as they were designed to house vehicles, but there are some places you just don’t think of storing a car. One place that we’ve never thought of storing a car is the basement, but that’s where reader Dave L found his 1967 Camaro, granted it was a partial basement.
Finding any classic barn find is a rush, but imagine the feeling that whoever discovered this 1963 Ferrari 330 America felt when they opened the barn doors. There were only 50 of these Italian sports cars ever built and somehow this one ended up on a Californian farm. It has been pulled from the barn and is now being offered by Gullwing Motor Cars.
We have found many interesting and mysterious projects stashed in people’s barns, but this one could be the most mysterious we’ve ever found.

If you’re up for a good investigation it is being offered by SignificantCars.com or here on eBay.
Most high end luxury cars spend their lives parked in the garages of the rich and famous, but a few of these cars have found their way to farms in America’s heartland. This 1960 Bentley S2, which has been named Barn Bentley by its owners, has spent its life driving around the farm and being parked in the barn. The owner has decided it’s time for it to leave the Dayton, Ohio farm and it can be found here on eBay with no reserve.
The GTO started life as an options package to get around GM’s ban on high performance cars, but the GTO was a true performance machine. We rarely find GTOs hiding in old barns, but this 1969 GTO is one of the few we’ve ever come across. It can be found here on Spokane, Washington’s Craigslist with an asking price of $7,200 OBO.
