Barn find hunter

Post by OrthmannJ »

Tom Cotter has found some pretty neat stuff in his web series "Barn find Hunter"
In the latest episode they are in Alaska and the object of the owner's obsession is first Gen Broncos. They focus mainly on the Broncos he has strewn about the two different properties, but the fellow also has an apparent affinity for old Ford crew cabs as well. They didn't talk about any of them on this episode, but there were at least four of them in background shots. Thought you all might enjoy.

I saw that on CB. I counted at least 6 or 7. I liked the crew cab landcruiser at the end. Crazy collection

I have driven past that property at least 100 times and had no idea. In all my years in Alaska, I saw 3 crewcabs...this guy has at least 6. The roof on the 75 2-tone looked wasted, but all the trim is there. He has enough to make several nice ones--plus that Excursion for drivetrain swap.

I like the Old Broncos and all, but there is thousands of them. The Crewcabs are worth way more.

Rides:
1974 F-250 Crewcab Shortbed 4x4 460/4spd Coyote swapping
1953 Ford F-100 Custom-- Current project --on Explorer Frame.
1965 Lincoln Continental Convertible Custom
2014 Lincoln MKZ Wife's
2016 Ford Focus -- Daughter's

Yeah, he seems to have a corner on the market. I noticed the wrecked Excursion too. I figered that was the intention.

Watched it again for the heck of it. If you give him credit for the yellow and red cabs there were 6 crews in the video. I’m a bronco guy too and have a soft spot for landcruisers so I am envious of his collection.
