this was only discovered  this year
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

To me that is THE most amazing find ever. It's difficult to imagine something better? What is the CSX number on that car? It probably is a 3200 number with the 428?

After analyzing the registry I think it could be 3278.   What do you think?

We need Ned's input.


I don't get the point of the barn find? It isn't like the owner will pay you to paint the house by giving you the car?

These cars are probably involved in an Estate sale and the manager is trying to top them out. An original 427 street car like this is worth around a million and you probably will need to pay more for the mice and cobwebs?

Even if you got them for nothing if you tried to register them for the street the state in charge has a list of valuations of them and you will pay the sales tax according to that.

It still comes down to being a billionaire to afford even a barn find but I suppose dreams die very hard?

Ned is still waiting for the page to load.

If these go to auction. They will both be well into 7 figures.

We will be hearing a lot about these cars in the foreseeable future.

I believe the CSX of this car is being kept private for the time being.   8)

Or it could already have been mentioned, as the owner is in the registry and a few people know who he is. :P

No real surprise. The estate planned to sell the cars.

Looks to be a pretty much un-molested example.

Any estimates?  Maybe we should start a pool!
