Call it the find of a lifetime, but this abandoned museum in a secret location has been discovered to be hiding over 200 classic car barn finds.

Models including a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR and classic Rolls-Royce cars were left to molder.

Now discovered – seemingly somewhere in the US – they’re just begging to be restored to their former glory.

The classic car barn finds

The now-abandoned automotive museum contained an extensive array of iconic models, as reported by Classic Car Rescue.

Sitting in the eerie silence is a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR, a model that was at the time of its late 1960s production the most powerful Mustang ever.

Also left to rot are muscle cars ranging from a classic Chevrolet Camaro Z28 to Mustangs – not unlike this rare 1965 model bought from the family of a fallen serviceman.

Luxury brand cars including classic Rolls-Royce and old Cadillacs have unbelievably been left.

The fact there are multiple Rolls-Royce in the collection tells us just how extensive it is, and there are plenty of examples of Mustangs, both regular Ford models and Shelby versions as well.

The museum site looks more like an abandoned warehouse than a former exhibition area.

The Mustang appears to be in good condition apart from the dust and dirt covering it.

This is a theme with many of the vehicles that are sat abandoned in the collection.

The video of the barn finds does not reveal the exact location or the story behind the abandonment, but the cars are at least protected from the elements, making restoration easier in the future.

The abandoned museum

To avoid unwanted visitors, the video doesn’t share where the cars were found or what happened to them.

Likewise, it’s also unknown which former museum this was or why it was forced to close its doors without selling its valuable exhibits.

While we have no details on potential resales, the fact that these stunning machines are undercover and protected from the elements means they’re in pretty great shape.

This should mean that – bar a good clean – the restoration of these vehicles in the future should be pretty straightforward.
