Colin Hodson, better known by his YouTube handle ‘The Bearded Explorer’, shared a new video with what is possibly his best barn find yet.

He stumbled upon a collection of cars worth a lot of money in an abandoned barn.

Some of these cars, if restored, would be worthy of a concours event.

In his video, Hodson says the collection is worth a lot of cash, ‘in the millions’, and we can totally see why he would say that.

This is the same guy that found another unique collection of cars abandoned in a barn in France, but this new barn find is on a different level.

A barn find worth millions

Behind a rather unassuming gate, Hodson found 37 rare classics, including an old F1 car and a rare Italian one-off.

In addition to the cars mentioned above, Hodson also found a few Alfas, BMWs, and Bentleys, as well as a rare Cadillac and a Studebaker that the owner of the world’s largest muscle car collection would happily add to his collection.

None of these vehicles is the sort of car you’re likely to see anywhere other than a classic car show.

But two of these cars actually take it up a notch because they are exceptionally rare.

One of the rarest cars in the world

One of these rare vehicles is known as the Silver Ray.

This car was commissioned by an American collector from Florida in the 1950s.

It was designed in Italy but powered by an all-American V8.

Many years later, it was purchased by a UK-based collector.

It seems that he evidently forgot all about it.
