One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and sometimes that treasure is hiding in a barn. Those who keep up on automotive news likely know about this rare but exciting occurrence when some old gem of a car is found tucked away in a garage or a barn. While these vehicles show the wear of age and stasis, behind the old paint and the rust spots they’re still one-of-a-kind.
The most recent of these exciting finds was a 1970 Ford Mustang Convertible that features factory-installed all-wheel drive. There was a brief period of time in the Ford Mustang history where Ford tried a partnership with a tractor company called Massey Ferguson which was installing AWD systems on race cars. This specific convertible would have been from around that since-forgotten time. That little detail is what makes this particular Mustang so remarkable, being that it might be the only one like it around today. So, even while this particular barn find isn’t famous from the big screen as some other barn finds have been, it’s still a pretty special thing.
This 1970 Ford Mustang convertible is now for sale by the private owner and will hopefully be bought by someone who can understand its unique status. For the rest of us, there’s the latest 2017 Ford Mustang on the lot at Mountaineer Ford. It may not be quite as unique, but it’s still a remarkable car.
