1973
I found this car in a 70yr old mans barn in missouri, it had been sitting for about 26 years (he thinks) said he parked it there after he moved from arizona, after few months out in the barn the mice were getting into it so he pulled out all the interior and took it into his house and it sat for 26 years. "You can't drive a car without seats" he said! After I found out about the car it took about 2 years of bothering him before he sold it to me for $5,000 I thought I was buying a car without interior, and after we did the deal and I got the car loaded up, shook his hand, getting ready to leave he said arn't you gonna take the rest of the stuff too? Not knowing what he was talking about I followed him into his basement and in the corner wrapped in sheets was all the interior in like new shape! after making a few trips out to the truck by myself he stops me and says I found some more parts in the other barn you want them too? Before he could say anything else I said yes and we went up to the other barn and up in the loft were new bumpers (front and back from ford) a new grille several door handels(for both sides) and 2 boxes of misc. other parts! When we were all done loading up he brings me out another box from the house and inside it were a bunch of pictures and 2 trophies that it won in 1980. The car was in ok shape no rust but it had been wrecked and repaired (hacked out) it took me 3 months to bring it to where it is now but I still have alot of little stuff to do..... Thanks for reading......

That is an amazing story! I guess I need to move to a place where more barns are still standing. Chuck
