Great story but I will not post a photo of it here as it is non Ford. Good friend Daniel Strohl of Hemming Daily has come up with a very interesting story about a one-owner “barn find”. The antique Roadster has been resting since about 1960 at the family’s summer home in Schroon Lake, New York in a detached garage. Follow along as he tells the tale of it’s recent discovery - See more photos and the rest of the story and a link to Dan's post @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=105239
Whats even more amazing is I grew up in that area and never knew it was there.
I sounds like it was a pretty good secret only know about by the old timers.
I found a 1911 Cole in a similar situation 20 years ago and a touring car version of this car about 15 years ago. Just need to keep you ears open and be fair with people as they are still out there.
Hopefully more of the story will be coming soon as yesterday I spent and hour advising Paul Tacy the new owner about methods we use here in the shop to preserve original cars. He is not going to change anything on it other than preforming a bit more mechanical servicing.
I am not sure exactly what is considered a "Barn Find", but back in May I picked up this 1924 coupe that was in an attached garage on a home in a busy residential area. There was a lot of stuff piled up all around the car. Apparently the car sat there from around 1956 or 58. The living brothers said that one of them used it in his school days and park it and forgot it. License plate and state inspection showed 1956.
I guess that is a Bard Find. I have posted some pictures once before.
