A rare 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB with an alloy body and a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 are among an incredible collection of forgotten cars discovered in a North Carolina garage.
The haul, uncovered by automotive author and historian Tom Cotter for Hagerty’s Barn Find Hunter video series, also includes a 1976 Triumph TR-6, a 1978 Morgan Plus 8 and a mid-1980s BMW 325ix.
The cars, which were all driven into the garage in 1991 and haven’t been moved since, are estimated to be worth as much as $4 million. That could be a low estimate, though; similar Ferraris have sold in the $5-8m range on their own, albeit in better condition and in slightly different forms. Lacking any type of alarm system, the garage’s contents were there more than a quarter-century!!!
Sitting next to the Ferrari was another once in a lifetime find: a completely unmolested 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 with only 19,001 miles showing on the odometer. The chassis number identifies the roadster as one of approximately 100 built equipped with a 428-cubic-inch engine rather than a 427.The Triumph TR6 has just 9,000 miles on the clock and propane-fueled 1978 Morgan Plus 8 with just 3,000 miles.
