The "King Tut" Of Barn Finds: Over 60 Ultra-rare, Exotic Vintage Cars Discovered In This Rickety Barn

When Roadtrippers reported on the finding of psychedelic artist Peter Max's 36 Peter Max VH1 Corvette collection, they thought they had the winner for this year's "barn finds."

But then France's Artcurial auction house found what it's calling the "King Tut" of barn finds: 60 ultra-rare, exotic vintage cars. They were found in a barn in western France and contain one of the 37 known 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyders.

There's also several Delahayes, Talbots and a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport.

These cars once belonged to Roger Baillon, a shipping magnate who had dreams of one day opening a museum. He wound up selling half his cars in the 1970s and storing the rest for the next five decades.

The condition of the cars varies: some were well-stored indoors but many are suffering corrosion from being left outside under carports.



These cars will be presented at the auction on February 6th.
