Barn Finds is an automobile directory listing of Classic Cars and antique automobiles that are waiting to be restored, or have been completed. Barn Finds was founded by Larry and Jeremy Clutterbuck of Bowmanville, Ontario.
We are located in Canada, and we have been assisting others in finding antiques, classic, hot rods and even the likes of newer hard to find automobiles. If you have something that you are searching for, contact us to request help with your search.
Subject to location, we also offer the service of taking photographs of vehicles or items that are for sale by private owners, who only send the nice pictures. We will send you the ugly or damaged areas, so you have a better picture of the item before you make that large investment.
We are a Father and Son who work together and play together. During the week days you will find us restoring buildings that were damaged by fire, water or wind, during storms. As Carpenters by trade we knew we didn’t want to be playing with wood on our days off.
We both share the same appreciation for the automobile and understand that more of the late model cars are being enjoyed by many car enthusiasts during car cruise nights. These are the cars that your children will be enjoying some day as they call it a classic, that was well maintained and never driven in poor weather conditions or used as a daily driver.
We are not loyal to any brand of vehicle with respect to the design in which it was intended for when delivered to the dealer. It is often the case that an adult can relate to vehicles that they had, or maybe it was the first car they drove.
As you walk around at a car show you often hear people saying “remember those cars”. They may have not been a favourite back in the day, but look at it now, that thing is mint. And yes it is mint because someone in its day looked after it with respect for the vehicle.
Having an open mind and not being loyal to any brand has allowed us to explore many types of vehicles that were built for both transportation and work. It is becoming more popular that larger vehicles such as farm and construction are being restored. Many of these will be trucks converted to be used as car haulers for other classics, or maybe even as a camper.
