Cars worth crores in the house where they have been holding 27 years
The new episode of Barn Find Hunter, Tom Cotter returns to the scene of his latest, greatest find: a garage in suburban Charlotte, North Carolina, housing five forgotten cars. Among them are a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Long-nose Alloy coupe and a 1967 Shelby Cobra 427.
The uninhabited house and garage have been condemned by the local municipality and are scheduled for demolition soon, so the cars need to be moved to a secure location. With no local towing companies willing to take on the risk of moving such valuable cars, Tom and his friends set out to transport this amazing stash to a warehouse where they’ll reside until being offered at Gooding & Company’s Amelia Island Auction on March 9, 2018.
We have heard that those who break up the old grave are often given treasure. Here’s North Carolina.
They found treasure inside the old grave a 1976 model Shelby Cobra and a Ferrari 12-cylinder 1966 model 275 GTB/2 Alloy. Models have been untold for the past 27 years
Along with the Cobra and Ferrari, the garage had also found a V-8-powered Morgan and a Triumph TR6 only 9000 miles from new.
The cars had been languishing in a suburban garage since the late 1980s. Moving millions of dollars in historic cars was no easy deal. While the wheels on the Cobra rolled, the brakes on the other three cars had frozen solid. Wheel dollies were necessary to move the cars around the garage and onto the trailers.
The owner has decided to keep the Morgan and the Triumph, but the Cobra and Ferrari will be sold. Gooding & Company will offer the dusty duo at their Amelia Island auction on Friday, March 9.
Two models are expected to cost about 2.8 million pounds, according to Hagerty, a professional car insurance company
