Everyone loves a good barn find. So every time we hear rare muscle cars are found, we can’t wait to see them.
We love muscle cars of all times, of all ages. They are some of the coolest cars out there. The thought of a rare and exotic machine, stuffed away from human eyes is truly a captivating one. And as you might imagine, over the years there has been some utterly incredible barn finds. Sometimes though, a barn find does not involve just one car. It can involve a whole host of cars, making for an even more incredible find. That is what this video on the Raul Burgos YouTube channel shows us too.
This incredible warehouse is full of some epic machines, including a rare pair of muscle cars that includes a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429.
Just before Christmas, Burgos went exploring and found a pretty incredible collection of cars when he did so. Burgos went around an unbelievable collection, one in which its owner said that the cars last ran about 30 years ago. Everything in the warehouse that we see in this video is all original, and they have less than 40,000 miles on the clock as well. It’s not something you expect to find every day. A huge collection of cars, sat gathering dust and doing absolutely nothing. And there are some incredible cars sat around in this barn as well including a very rare Ford Mustang.
The videographer does openly admit in his video description that he is not a car expert, and just wants people to enjoy the video. The video starts off with a Dodge Charger that has rather seen better days, with moss all over it as it is sitting outside. We then instantly get to lay our eyes on a Ford Ranchero that has also seen happier times, and remember these cars are all original. The number of spare parts also takes our breath away as well as they are all littered everywhere.
A car show sign is on the Mustang. This states that it is an all-original car and has just 35,000 miles on the clock. That is incredible, making this Mustang an absolute gem. We sadly don’t get quite as clear a look at the Challenger, nor do we get a proper look under the hood. From the grille design though and the R/T badging, we are relatively confident that this is a real deal. Whether it is an original Hemi car is another question as so few existed, but then again it is sat next to a Boss 429.
Beyond those two cars, there are plenty of other highlights within the collection. Inside the warehouse is a Ford Torino Cobra Jet, and next to it is a first-generation Pontiac GTO. This is before we get to see the plethora of 1970s Ford Mustangs just all over the place. Remember too, this is just the cars inside. As we have touched upon already, there is a huge number sitting outside, exposed to the elements. With so many great cars rusting away, it is quite hard to watch for car enthusiasts.
When Rare Muscle Cars Are Found
Given the rarity and the ever-dwindling number of surviving muscle cars, these barn finds are often treason troves of history. Sometimes, these cars can be salvaged. Other times, many of the parts can be cannibalized to help complete other vehicles. On rare occasions, a vehicle with an important history, once thought to have been gone forever, is recovered. And of course, there are sometimes vehicles that literally crumble at their mere touch, having rusting away for half a century or more.
So if you find yourself restoring one of these cars, have a look at some of our wheel options.
