4 Million Worth Cars Barn Hunters

I don’t know how one gets the job Tom Cotter has, but I want it. Cotter is the host of the Hagerty series Barn Find Hunters.

In his job as host of the show Cotter gets to run around all over the United States discovering rare and valuable cars that people have just left or forgotten, collecting dust for years inside their garages, or as is the case today, in their barns.

During his travels Cotter has seen a lot of amazing automobiles hidden away, but in his latest trip to North Carolina he hit the mother-lode.

The owner of the garage on the property of a house that was set to be demolished said he knew that there were some old cars inside, but had no idea the magnitude of his understatement.

They weren’t just some old cars, they were a 1966 AC Shelby Cobra 427 – one of only around 100 of its kind, a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 with an extra-rare alloy body, a 1976 Triumph TR-6 and a 1978 Morgan 8. And somehow it gets even better.

All four cars had been stored in the garage since at least 1991. The Ferrari only had 13,205 miles on it and the Cobra’s odometer read only 19,001 miles. The combined value of these cars is somewhere in the range of $4 million.

Here’s an idea of what the Cobra and Ferrari would look like when they’re cleaned up…
