Rusty 1961 MB Found in Barn Sells for $800,000.00
« on: January 12, 2020, 10:50:23 PM »
Why don't any of us ever run across any of these barn finds?

The car was originally unearthed from a barn in an undisclosed location and is apparently one of just 256 ever built and one of just 101 produced in its light-blue color, which is code #354. The sale included documentation dating back to the car’s original bill of sale, the owner’s manual, and even a full stack of service records dating up to 1968 before it was reportedly shoved in a barn.

WOW!  $800K!   I would be happy with a barn find that would bring only $800!  LOL :011:
