$4M Barn Find: Ferrari 275 GTB and 427 Cobra Hidden for Decades

Barn finds. For automotive fanatics it’s the equivalent of Indiana Jones setting out to find the lost Highlander sword used by King Arthur to defeat Darth Vader in the battle for Middle Earth. Yes, such things are that epic. However, when you start talking about vintage Ferraris and original big-block Cobras hidden away for decades, there simply is no comparison. Not in Hollywood. Not in even in the known universe. Yes, we’re being a bit dramatic here, but for very good reason. Hagerty’s series The Barn Find Hunter has unearthed a group of truly exceptional relics,…

Chevrolet El Morocco Convertible – The Rarest Of The 1957 Chevys

The rarest of the 1957 Chevys, the “Poor Man’s Cadillac”, the El Morocco was a customized full-size car produced by Ruben Allender based on the 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet. For the first time ever, GM allowed an outsider to design a custom Chevy and this rare 1957 Chevy is an example of what happens when beauty meets beast. Allender was not a coachbuilder in the traditional sense, but rather a customizer as the 1956-1957 El Moroccos were face-lifted Tri-Five Chevrolets with bone stock drivetrains and interiors whose bodywork was restyled…

Here’s What It’s Like to Find $8 Million Worth of Cars in a Random Garage

We hear about barn finds all the time, but rarely do we catch wind of a find as wild as this. Hagerty’s Barn Find Hunter video series was fortunate enough to discover not one, but two seven-figure 1960s classics hidden inside a neglected garage in North Carolina, untouched for almost 30 years. In the video, host Tom Cotter stumbles upon a collection of abandoned cars scattered amongst aging garden tools and lawnmowers. There seem to be five cars in total; an E30-generation BMW 3-Series, a Morgan, a Triumph, and—wait for it—an all…

Craigslist Find: A GMC 702ci V-12 – How Does 585 ft/lbs Of Torque At 1,600 RPM Sound To You?

Subtle, this monstrous engine isn’t. You will never, ever be subtle with twelve cylinders making power. Not in a Ferrari, not in an Aston Martin, and most certainly not in a GMC Truck. This is the GMC 702ci V-12, an engine used to power large commercial trucks, irrigation systems, the Minuteman ICBM carriers. It’s a stout unit, a specially designed twelve-cylinder block with huge bore spacing for better cooling, a large list of parts that are shared with GMC V6 engines, four heads, four exhaust manifolds, a 180-pound crankshaft, a…

This Core Sample From the Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Shows 108 Years of History

In its 108-year history, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been paved, repaved, and paved again in the ongoing pursuit of drivable road. Last week we were able to get firsthand look at exactly how much the track has been resurfaced, and all of the materials inside of it courtesy of one massive core sample. The sample was tweeted out on the speedway’s official Twitter account, and shows the core sample fresh out of the ground, with a photoshopped image alongside it detailing all of the contents – from the original creek gravel,…

Man forgets where he parks his car – then finds it 20 years late

Back in 1997 in the German city of Frankfurt, a man reported his car as stolen to the police. Twenty years later, the authorities in the city have tracked down the missing vehicle, only to discover that the man who owned it had in fact, just forgotten where he’d parked the car and had assumed it had been stolen. The vehicle was found in a garage in an old industrial building that is due to be demolished. The car was in the way of the demolition so it was reported…

1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom 1 Jonckheere Coupe

And then there were ten. With a completely expected shoo-in for JFG like the Porsche 959, the margin of acceptance standing at 95.1% is no surprise. Impressive yes, but still bested by the McLaren F1 and the Mercedes 300SL, though we suppose that to be good company to keep. Today’s offering is far less well known, with a far murkier history, and much, much more beautiful coachwork. What the bloodlines of the recently axed Rolls Royce Phantom cannot offer is everything this car represents. Complete and utter disregard for cost,…

Meet the Man Who Daily-Drives a 725,000-Mile 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo

1975 Porsche 911 Turbo Continues To Tick Away After 725,000 Miles Although many Porsche 911s sit in garages for most of their lives, the 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo owned by Canadian Bill MacEachern is different. In fact, it has over 725,000 miles (1.165 million km) under its belt. MacEachern took delivery of the German sports car in May 1976 and before long, he was bitten by the racing bug and undertook multiple cross-continent trips to attend races in Florida, Georgia, New England, California and everywhere else in between. Throughout the next 30…

World’s Greatest Car Found

It’s not known if a tuning company is behind the project or if it is a simple and particularly wild backyard creation but the finished product is truly wild. It’s a rat rod on a custom frame, located somewhere in Iowa. It has a 350 Chevy under the hood, the front end of an 89-95 Jeep Wrangler, and the rear off an unidentified year of 911. It merges our love of the Jeep Wrangler with our love of the Porsche 911 seamlessly. Rocking up to a local car event in…

This Australian Company Will Sell You an Aluminum V12 LS1

GM’s LS engine is a gem. Wether it’s factory-fitted to your production car, dropped in as a crate engine, or swapped from a junkyard wreck, the General’s small-block V8 is nearly limitless. But what if you want something more? Well, Australia has you covered. Yes, Down Under is the home of V12LS, a company building, well, a V12 engine made from smashing two LS1s together. The resulting 9.5-liter engine debuted at the 2016 SEMA show, where the first prototype engine made 641 wheel horsepower in a heavily-modified ’67 Camaro. Now, the…
