    Default 100 cars at French barn find



    from the article:
    This could actually be the most important barn find ever as besides the limited California Spider (only 37 units made), there's also a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport Frua and a Bugatti 57 Ventoux. 60 cars out of a total of 100 are going to be auctioned in February by Artcurial during the Retromobile Salon and according to auctioneers the Ferrari will fetch up to 12 million whereas the Maserati should go for 1.2 million.

    More importantly there is a Dauphine to be rescued.

    It and the Dauphine will probably be in a select group of 40 along with the Jaguar and Cortina.

    Some rarities for sure, but not exactly well hidden with all those open sided sheds. Sales 'puffery' perhaps?

    Nice Junk. I'd take the Maserati A6G. It looks brutal(and a bit sinister..)in that lead Picture. Landlord has a '55 Mercedes 300-SL Gullwing which He's had since 1966,when He & His Father & Grand Father found it on a S.W. Phila used Car Lot. They paid $795.00 for it. Recently,a Friend bought a copy of The ROBB REPORT & showed Him some recent Auction results:-a Gullwing had sold for $1.3 Million,Jack(the Owner..)just laughed,and said:-'Great,ANOTHER Car I can't crush. Stupid Yuppies alway's ruining our fun.'
