Barn discovers in rural Detroit? Tom Cotter took care of to discover some in an "vehicle Disneyland:" from a 1914 Princess and also an aluminum-bodied, air-cooled 1920 Franklin to a one-owner (who still owns it) 1956 Ford Crown Victoria. One of the most impressive find of the program? Discovered in a storage system, is a one-of-one manufacturing facility racer terminal wagon, accredited by then-Ford president Lee Iacocca himself. Regrettable this one's already located a new home …

    1. Someone could make big bucks following this guy around and buying up what He doesn’t.

    1. Rarest car! There is nothing rare about it. Rare means very few still exist today either rotting away somewhere or still able to run, roll or drive. It a one and only and has papers to prove it. Not even the best liar in the world could get someone to believe them if they claimed they knew of even a 2nd one. Not a chanced! Like it or not but if anyone ever took that car apart they should be choked by bare hands and never be allowed to come close to any tools ever again. That’s if he doesn’t get choked to death of coarse. Lol!

  1. Give me the wagon :^ ) Super rare 1 of 1 ,4 spd, 428ci, all original. Not to mention Lee had to sign off on it to be made. Wow!

  2. Was this Ford wagon from Dayton, Ohio? I remember this car, the guy brought this in to the Ford dealer that i worked at. it has to be the same car, if only one 67 woody wagon was made with a 428 4 speed.

    1. @Jon Alarcon I think it depends on your age really. Watch over next 10 years how these baby boomers start selling tens of thousands of great old cars to use for their retirements. I’m in my early 60s and would have to flip it for profit assuming you could even get it for 80K (just speculating). Once you start getting in your 60s & 70s and your health starts deteriorating bye bye muscle car that has been stored for 40 years. The cars just aren’t cost effective or necessary anymore when your looking at death. And the cycle will continue as the millennial rich kids will buy them up and when they get old they will sell.

    2. David Mc yes and no I’m 56 and have several old classics im not selling them, my daughter gets them besides im kinda well off did some investment that paid off pretty good not bragging but I’m sitting good infact I actually have a bunch of old classic car parts that I collected over the years those I do sell and your right it’s a good investment. I’d never sell my 69 chevelle or my 72 vette or my 63 comet wagon

  3. Errm… About those 1914 princess pressure release valves… I think they are actually fuel priming cups for getting the engine started especially when it’s really cold. You just pour a drop of gas on each one. Used widely in the time before the choke got common.

    1. suomenpresidentti Those are priming cups, the pressure relief valve is the actual valve in the block πŸ˜‚

  4. I’ve watched this video 3 times tonight…can’t get over the Country Squire…great find, great story!!!! Unreal!!!

    1. The main reason is that in a production environment steel is easy and quicker to form. In addition the firewall is a major stuctural component of a car.

    2. Well, when your engine catches fire, you are supposed to GET OUT OF THE CAR. An engine fire would probably burn itself out long before it broke through a wooden firewall (I have wood doors that are fire code compliant in 2019, so wood was not that bad of an idea for a firewall).

    1. Stored? Is that what you call families who let some classics ROT and ROT and gather a goddam “patina”, so some rich bastard can someday go “ooooooooh” and cough up a million clams.

  5. Thanks for putting these on youtube for us guys who cant afford to watch it anywhere else.

  6. Worked at a Grocery Store in the early 70s and we had a customer with a 67 Caprice Wagon with a FACTORY 427 with a 4 speed. The good old days .

  7. I ain’t to mechanically minded but the words “wooden” & “firewall” don’t seem to go well together..

    1. They do in the head of a penny pincher. So did the G.M. Law Loophole Seat Belts from the late 80 and early 90s.

    2. Actually, it was still call the dashboard in 1914. Holdover from the buggy days. It was to keep mud and crap from being thrown up on the driver from the horses. Firewalls came later, between the engine and the dashboard.

  8. I wonder if, in 50 years, there will be a Youtube channel of a guy finding an “Ecoboost” in a barn?
    “This was put into the barn just after the warranty period”
