  • Hershey barn finds

    So the story goes these were pulled out of a barn and transported to Hershey in an enclosed, untouched. Complete with dirt, hay, cobwebs and all. The guy told me the Vicky just went for 70K at the meet, the interiors were shredded from what i could see looking in through the dirt
    The vicky was last run 20 years ago...

    Holy smokes..........I might have to raise the price on my 29 Tudor. It's cleaner and has more back seat room.

      A complete '32 Vicky, $70k, that is probably a bit light, dirt not withstanding.

        Mitch,
        Great to see you among the rust on Wednesday in the MARC tent. You did a great job of putting up ads for the forum.
        We went back yesterday to buy more rust.

          The early V-8's were all very sharp cars in my eye! 32-33-34's and '35-'36 three window coupes!! Yeah baby!!

          Cost a bit more to pay and play than most Model A's do. But then the good ones have pretty strong resale values.

            Well what are your opinions of that vicky selling for 70K not running?

              I'll say it again, for an all original '32 Vicky, $70k is light. IF it is a 4banger, truly light.

                My buddy saw those cars and said on close inspection, they were staged. Dust and cob webs blown on for effect.

                  Bill that was my first thought also!!

                  Take a car and drive it through a cornfield to trash it up, throw some more crap on it, a perfect barn find

                  And as far as how original they were who could tell without doing a full detail over and under.

                Apples to Oranges here, and not wanting to hi-jack this thread, but last week I was told about a 31 SW Vickie for sale in this area. Was told engine was rebuilt and some other restoration work done. Price seemed cheap, but without seeing it, I do not know for sure. What is the going price for these unrestored? Rod
                Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

                  I would really rather own a fairly untouched original car with the mechanicals restored back to factory.
                  I had a 30 fordor that was repainted poorly at some time (all blue) and very little interior. Had the drive line set up to be safe and reliable. I got a lot of attention at the shows and I really did not have to care about the body or interior.

                    If we build them, will they come?
                    by sunnyorm
                    Barn find, of course, has become a catch all for seemingly lost vintage vehicles, right? wouldn't it be nice in an era of disappearing barns, if when someone built a new one, more barn finds "would come"?

                    1936 Greyhound?
                    by William_Smith
                    What year is this and is it Ford? It's not a 1935 or 36, off a different manufacturer?

                    This will be our first time going to Hershey. Can you purchase a program before the event?

                    Done with Hershey!
                    by Terry, NJ
                    Well, as the title says, I'm done with Hershey! Why? you might ask. Some time in the past, I'm sure they had a problem and these were the solutions. First off,I had no idea when I left at 6 AM to get some coffee, I could not get back in until 7 AM. I was told by the "Security Service" the I had to go cool my heels in the Chocolate field parking lot. I hate seeming stupid laws. I don't believe...

                    by mshmodela
                    Appears the doors on the old barn are not getting opened as much as before --might be due to the new Farmer who build a nice new barn. Great job Mitch!

                    Hershey question
                    by Mickey
                    I'm heading up to Hershey Wednesday or Thursday to pick up some parts being brought in by sellers. I've never been there before and I assume tickets are required. Where do I buy them? Is there parking near?
