An old school muscle cluster is discovered in Alaska, and the highlight is the F-body hiding under a car cover ...
A big part of finding barn finds success is attending car shows and meeting other enthusiasts. After meeting Preston and his father Terry at an auto event in Fairbanks, Alaska just over a week earlier, Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter decided to pay the duo a visit. The father / son team has a number of cars on display, many of which are in their original condition and have not been restored or tampered with.

On the way to the North Pole from Preston and Terry, Alaska, a stunning collection of restored classics catches the eye, but beneath the covers is a row of stunning vintage cars that are right down the alley of Barn Find Hunter.
Starting with a 1969 Ford Torino Cobra built with an unusual combination of options, the guys were dying to share their trophies. The 428 car has its original green paintwork and black interior and was optionally equipped with hood pins, air conditioning and an automatic transmission, but it did not have a tachometer. According to the Marti report, it was the only one ordered with a watch, a $ 15.59 option that made this car a one-off.
Also in the collection is a pair of Mustangs, one of which is a 1967 Fastback that was purchased from the original owner. It's the only one ordered in Candy Apple Red with a 289 C code V8 and designed wheels. The other Mustang is a '65 convertible that was bought by the same man at the same time.
Not much is known about the car, except that it is also a car with C-Code 289, which, unlike the '67 with a 4-speed gearbox, has a 3-speed gearbox. Behind the house is a Pontiac cemetery in the back yard with lots of rare cars, some used for parts and others waiting for their time to shine again.
For the finale, Preston shows a 1969 Trans Am 400 Ram Air IV that he bought from Jim Wanger, Pontiac's managing director. Wanger had brought it back to Pontiac for restoration, so it's not a barn find, but that doesn't stop anyone from being completely impressed by the beautiful car. Staying true to the importance of the hobby, as if this group of people who had just met were old friends, Preston offered Tom the opportunity to take it home.
