Gallery: Five Sought-After Mopars Unearthed in One Barn Find


A barn find is more or less the holy grail of vintage car hunting. As the American landscape gets picked clean of restorable cars and the values of old school iron continues to climb, finding these scores has become an increasingly rarer occurrence. But every once in a while, someone truly hits pay dirt.

Posted on the Craigslist of Boston, Massachusetts, a seller has discovered no less than five seemingly complete and well-optioned Mopar muscle cars. While there’s no Hemi convertibles in the mix (let’s get real here), there also isn’t a dud in the bunch: two 1970 Dodge Chargers, a 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda with a 340, a big-block 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee and a Dodge Dart Swinger.

The “barn” in question is actually more of a storage garage which has reportedly entombed these Mopars since the early 1980s, and protecting these muscle cars from the elements for the last three decades has clearly paid off – all look to be more or less rust free and almost entirely complete.

The ad reports that all of the cars turn over, but the seller admits that they each will need some level of body work. As an added bonus, it appears the broadcast sheets for all five cars are intact and still nestled under their respective back seats.

But before you go off searching for your wallet, don’t expect these cars to be parted with for a song. The seller is quick to put the kibosh on such notions straight away when he writes, “No BS I know what I have none or [sic] under 10K don’t bother with crazy offers pls.” Still, if you’re looking for a solid foundation for a restorable car or custom build, it doesn’t get much better than this.
