$4,000,000 Barn Find – Rare Ferrari AND 427 Cobra Hidden for Decades | Barn Find Hunter – Ep.24

Searching in the heart of North Carolina's NASCAR nation, auto writer and also Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter ventures into a garage filled with cars and also is struck with a lightning screw. Parked before him is a silver 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2, covered in decades of dust and crawler webs. The Italian Resting Charm has only 13,000 miles on the clock as well as, Tom quickly recognizes, is among just a handful that were developed with an alloy body. It just can't get any kind of much better than this, Tom factors, and then– incredibly– along comes a 1967 Shelby Cobra 427.

    1. @Riki Diki89 take a walk, around ANY BLOCK, in California- and you will see no. Less than 10 E30″ s.. They are too common here.
      I have 3 ( 1 driver, 1 drifter, and a parts car) myself…Here, a Days in 510 is worth more..Occasionally- You can find an E30 M 3, for less than 10 grand..Rare, but they do surface..

  1. I hope you filmed the rest of the cars and do another video about them. As well as try to get the owner to speak about them, he must have some interesting stories. This could have been a hour or 2 long video and I would have gladly watched.

    1. Yes. I’m totally pumped about seeing these cars!
      Rare. Valuable finds.

    2. He left them for a reason. Maybe the “friend” is actually him, but he can’t disclose that fact LMAO.

    1. Petro is great as well – but in a different way ( they dont do barn finds ) but restored cars & passionate drivers /owners

    1. @Jeff Lee – Yea right Jeff, I’m sure they brought in some Hollywood set designers to build some realistic mouse dens complete with real collected mouse urine! But you are right Jeff, something doesn’t smell right here, YOU!

    2. I love cars especially shelbys.I have 2 crazy fast super snakes and a red white stripe gt500 and a 07 Shelby gt

    3. I have the argument that a modified gt500 isn’t more valuable than a real super snake. Same with the cobras what’s more valuable a kit or real cobra.That is a no brainer.

    1. Some are, some aren’t, but he didn’t say that anyway. He said, “But this is one fine neighbourhood. Drs. and lawyers AND people of substance live in this neighbourhood.”

    2. Robert Drake I hope my lawyer is from my car accident because my back and rotator cuff are damaged for life I need my settlement to be as high as possible

  2. *I wonder why the mice weren’t living in the Ferrari? Maybe they couldn’t afford to live in such a nice place 🤣*

    1. Mice are smarter than your average pet, but the Ferrari was so well built, with tight tolerances, that the mice didn’t know how to get into it. I mean, did you hear how well it sounded when the door closed?

    2. Excellent Comment…anyone with an IQ score above 80 is smart enough to want that Cobra over the overpriced Italian pos….

    3. @Branon Fontaine Why, the Ferrari is worth more. than that overrated Brit POS with a Yank cast iron lump shoved in.

  3. Farm Boy Garage would love the opportunity to restore every single one of those precious gems. The mice would have to relocate!

    1. I found mine… It was in the basement. .. Is it suppose to have “Hot Wheels” printed on the bottom?

  4. Congratulations on this magnificent discovery ! Hope that these fabulous automobiles are well cared for today.

  5. My jaw never left the ground for the entire length of this video. When the garage door is opened, it’s like a dream come true. All I can say is, “WOW”!

  6. Even more of a pleasure to watch because there was no irrelevant background music, just the conversation and the imagination. Purrfect!

  7. Love how the lights were on when they opened the garage door.
    Great find. Some amazing machines there.

    1. They definetly had to get in before shooting to unlock the doors from the inside. I doubt they would have just had those doors unlocked for all that time.

  8. I would rather have a kit car cobra. I would be able to drive it with out having a heart attack if it got door dinged.

    1. Jay Foulkes you can get a kit for under twenty thousand dollars. I know because my boss bought one and it’s a daily driver.
