Dennis Collins Ultimate Barn Find – Steve McQueen Green ‘68.5 R-Code Mustang

It’s absolutely no secret that hunting for barn finds is a pretty exciting job. When you’re searching around for cars that have been neglected by their owners or forgotten about, you absolutely never know what you’re going to come across. While many of these finds are in complete need of restoration as they have rotted into the ground, sometimes, there are diamonds to be found in the rough.

While many of these cars need to be fully restored, there are others that are survivors that maybe just need a little bit of fixing up without going through the full restoration process. This is exciting not only because the car is pretty close to completion upon buying it but the machine gets to retain some of the lusters that it came with off of the assembly line. There is an absolute premium on original cars for just this reason.

In this outing, we check in with a car that Collins declares is a “holy grail,” a term that he says he doesn’t really like to use that often.

This time, we ride along with Collins and company as they take us on another episode of Coffee Walk where he comes across a car that has been sitting for nearly 30 years. The 1968 Ford Mustang clad in “McQueen Green” has been inoperable since 1996 and owned by the same family since 1976.

Down in the video below, we tune in to see exactly what condition this ride is in as it has been sitting all of this time, waiting for a rescue to take place. With discoveries like this, it’s not just about seeing the time capsule of a machine that has been hiding away for all these years. It’s also about cracking open the history books to learn a little something about hot rodding from all those years ago!
