You might have seen a lot of amazing barn find videos, but this might be the luckiest one yet — housing not one but three Dodge Daytonas.

In the American car community, barn finds are all the rage, as you never know what kind of rare cars you might unearth in unexpected places.

So you can imagine how lucky these guys must have felt when they found these three rare American muscle cars.

Three Dodge Daytonas hidden for decades

These three rare Dodge Daytonas were hidden for decades.

They only saw the light of day when Ryan Brutt from Auto Archaeology found them on a barn-find excursion.

The first thing they saw when they entered was a one-of-one black 1969 Daytona 440 4-speed with red stripes.

The 1969 Dodge Daytona was a special edition car that dominated high-profile NASCAR races.

Just earlier this year, Dodge revealed the new 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona EV, but even the modern supercar is nothing, compared to these classics.

And as luck would have it this barn contained not one but three rare American muscle cars.

The second car they found was a green 1969 Dodge Charger 440 automatic with a green interior.

It even had the original engine and transmission.

The barn also had another red Dodge Daytona, which was in fairly good condition after being restored by the family who owned the place.

Luckiest barn find ever

However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg as the barn also had other classic vehicles that were a sight to behold for any car lover.

Other than these three cars, the barn also housed a Dirt, Lil Red Express, and a Polara.

The 1968 Dodge Dirt GTS 383 4-speed car is quite rare, but it wasn’t in its best condition.

There was also a 1970 Dodge Charger RT automatic and a 1967 Polara convertible.
