Rare 427 Cobra and Ferrari 275 extracted from condemned garage | Barn Find Hunter – Ep. 25

In this episode of Barn Find Hunter, Tom Cotter goes back to the scene of his newest, biggest find: a garage in suburban Charlotte, North Carolina, real estate five forgotten cars. Amongst them are a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Long-nose Alloy coupe and a 1967 Shelby Cobra 427. The uninhabited home and garage have actually been condemned by the regional municipality and are scheduled for demolition soon, so the cars need to be transferred to a safe area. With no local towing business happy to take on the threat of moving such important vehicles, Tom and his pals set out to carry this remarkable stash to a storage facility where they'll reside until being provided at Gooding & Company's Amelia Island Auction on March 9, 2018.
