  • Incredible car collection uncovered after 61 years

    What a Shame that this cars have been left all these years. like this. Just think what they would be worth if they were indoors. There is magazines that i pick up from the gas station every two weeks, they Wisconsin auto & rv www.autorv.com AutoGaaette.com .. From time to time I see old cars and trucks for sale like this 1930 Chevy tudor 350 v8 $14,995 or this 1937 Chevy coupe nova for $35,000.

    So what do think these would have gone for if they were keep indoors??






    A collection of more than 200 historic cars hidden from public view for 61 years will be crossing the auction block in Oklahoma next month.

    The cars belonged to Oliver Jordan, who ran a salvage business in the city of Enid from 1945 to 1953, when he locked it up during a zoning dispute that lasted for years.

    Jordan never relented, and the cars have sat idle since then, most of them left outside to rot. The majority are from the 1930s, and '40s, but the oldest is a rare 1917 Maxwell.

    Among the more notable finds are an aluminum-bodied 1937 seven-passenger Lincoln limo by Willoughby, believed to be one of five remaining of the 60 that were produced, and a 1937 Cord Model 812 Supercharged Beverly sedan.

    Wasn't there a similar collection unearthed a few years ago, but they were stored indoors and were found in near-mint condition? I'm thinking that one was in Nebraska, but not absolutely sure.

    I also never read any followup stories on that one, so they may have discovered the cars weren't preserved as well as it seemed. Wouldn't the seals and other materials have dried out and cracked to pieces sitting untouched for 50-plus years, even in a clean, dry storage area?
