Hagerty it's a channel YouTube which always creates content related to cars.
One of the favorite audience sections is "Barn Find Hunter," where the host, Tom cotter, surprises us with amazing discoveries barn finds – forgotten or abandoned cars that are now worth a lot of money -.
One of these discoveries took place recently in Texas, where Cotter found a historic car sitting in the courtyard of a family who had no idea about the value of their classic car.
It is Judge Pontiac GTO Original with V8 engine and four-speed manual transmission. The car is supposedly worth it $ 389,900 in optimal conditions, but is now dusty and exposed to atmospheric conditions.
However, this is not the only classic that a family home and refuses to sell.
According to the film, other Ford models, General Motors and Mopars, among several motorcycles, also integrate the family collection that can start selling these models now that they know more about their value.
Here we share the video.
Pontiac GTO was produced by the now extinct American car brand Pontiac in 1964 and 19740. The "Judge" model began to be produced only in 1969, after the American comedian gave him such a nickname.
The car was a new plant on the market, cheaper. It no longer contained some of the racing features that were used to compete with the Plymouth Road Runner. From the very beginning, the car was only sold in the color that distinguished it, although many years later it was painted in other shades.
Only in 1969, the muscular red car was sold more than 70,000 times, but Judge was only produced for 6833 drivers.
