The UK’s biggest gathering of ‘Barn Finds’ will see 20 classics in various conditions showcased in the Carole Nash Barn Find display at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery.

Ranging from an extremely rare 1954 Jowett Jupiter Sports, untouched or moved for 40 years, to an ‘80s Range Rover, left to rot in the back of a garage, the line-up features an exciting mix of rarities and rust.

Joining the ‘rust fest’ is a trio of Triumphs - a 1977 Spitfire, a 1962 Herald Convertible and a 1973 TR6, in its original rare purple colour, that has been off the road 36 years.

An 1972 MG Midget, found in the back of a garage where is had resided for ten years, a 1961 Austin A35 Van, and a 1959 Renault Dauphine Autobleu found in the South of France, will be joined by an immaculate 1970 Carlight Caselette De-Luxe caravan, all discovered by restorer Mark Fishpool.

A Volvo P1800, a Mk1 Jensen Interceptor, and a Citroen 2CV will also be on display along with a raft of stunners from the 60s including a 1964 Moskvich 403, 1962 Rover P4 100, 1960 Singer Gazelle Series 111a, and 1969 Savage Cortina.

Visitors can vote for their favourite while enjoying live music and watching local artist ArtByBex, who will be creating a painting of one of the barn finds during the show. Don’t miss this popular feature in Hall 4.
