This includes photos of all of my halftracks including my barn find, red one, which I got running last week. All are model M2A1 with the yellow one being an Autocar. The green and red halftracks were both built by White. All haftracks originally had a un-ditching roller. The rollers on the yellow and red halftracks were removed and replaced with winches. The red one has the correct winch bumper and the yellow one was made up.
Massive Barn Find in Portugal
I've tried to identify most of the 180 cars found locked away in here, can
anyone recognise any others? I will add them to the video along with
corrections if confirmed 100%. What is that 2nd Formula race car?

1945 White M2A1 Halftrack on GovLiquidation.com
http://www.GovLiquidation.com - This 1945 White M2A1 Halftrack has been
sold. It went for 41% off the estimated original retail price!
This authentic military vehicle started easily and ran well. It appeared to
be mostly in its original condition and had 1945 dated tracks in
serviceable condition. The transmission and transfer case shifted easily,
the clutch and brakes seemed to be good. The steering was tight. It had
nearly new tires.
It did not have the original fuel tank and was missing the instruments.
There was no glass, no manuals, no hour meter, and the enclosed cabin was
not climate controlled. It had an electric start, but no ignition key.
The 147hp White inline 6 cylinder water cooled gas engine had a 20 gallon
fuel capacity. The max speed was 40 MPH and the range was 175 miles. The
armor was .25 inches thick.
This Halftrack was nearly rust free underneath and was in remarkably good
condition for its age. This type of military vehicle can be registered to
drive on the road and there were some spare parts available. It was located
in Rancho Cordova, CA.

AMAZING Edsel Barn Find, Rare Cars Parked and Left. Pacer Convertible, Rangers, Dodge Charger
5/4/14...Just saw this in person yesterday and it blew my mind. In what
can be best described as a 2000 sq ft litterbox, I opened this barn to find
almost 10 cars that seemed to have been parked 30 years ago...so tightly
that it was hard to get between them. The most amazing cars in the lot
were an Edsel Pacer Convertible, and a Dodge Charger. Both of these cars
appeared to have been in pristine condition when parked. The seller's
agent told me that they are in the process of removing the cars from the
barn and going though them in preparation for selling them. Amazing!!!
Audi 100LS C1 Convertible Cabrio Barn Find Scheunenfund
My friend Bryan found this ultra-rare Audi 100LS convertible at a farmhouse
where he wanted to buy some stuff for his garden, when he saw the rear end
sticking out of a barn under a cover. He introduced himself as an Audi
enthusiast and was permitted to take a look at the car and so he found this
one to his big surprise. After talking and negotiations he was eventually
able to get the car.
There are very strange abnormalities with this Audi. First of all, there
were only 3 convertible prototype cars made for Audi by Karmann and also by
Deutsch. One was destroyed by Audi, one was worn out while driving over the
years and one still exists today. But, there are wildly rumors that a
fourth car was made for the then young and aspiring engineer Ferd. Peech to
be used for his visits and stays in the USA. Those rumors were never
confirmed (and are still discussed at vintage Audi meetings today), but it
looks like this is the car. The strange thing is that you never know where
those special factory cars end up over these years like e.g. the last Horch
that was found in a private junk yard in Texas.
These are the oddities: the sticker on the B-post says 9/72, but it has the
old front strut towers that were only produced up to January/February of
1972. It has a 2 piece floor carpet set that I haven't seen ever before (5
piece carpet set up to 7/70 and after that one piece floor carpets were
used till end of production). It has Euro tail lights but sealed beams up
front and US specifications side marker lights and bumpers incl.
overriders. The engine set up is US model like also, but it is hooked up to
a 4-speed trans (which is not unusual), but the gears are changed by column
shift (which was never sold in the US). The instrument cluster has a
speedo/odometer showing km/h. The seats are different, too. They feature
leatherette/vinyl on the outside (like the originals), but the fabric of
the seating area and the back is different. For some reason it still has
the original Ingolstadt licence plate in the front. It is mounted beneath
the front bumper (like the European models) while the regular '72 US models
(till production end in 1977) had the licence plate mounted on the middle
of the bumper up front. The Wolfsburg plate in the back was put on by him.
As you can see, the car is very rough though the paint could be buffed up
for the most part. Even the bumpers seem to be straight. It needs a lot of
work but at least the engine runs (only if gas is poured into the carb)
generating quite some smoke. Meanwhile it's a start for the upcoming
restoration project. I hope that there are Audi 100 specialists out there
who know more about this well rumored car that may have been built just for
a big shot of the Audi factory as a vacation car or even as a test car,
too. I suppose that the factory won't be able or willing to supply any
information about this strange one-of-a-kind Audi 100.
Barn Find: Classic Porsche 912 Restoration -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Go to www.ammonyc.com to get the free Barn Find Assessment Checklist
Today's story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966
Porsche 912, which was last registered 23 years ago. We discovered the car
thanks to our friend Roger Garbow, from Full Throttle Marketing. He had
received a call about the car's discovery and immediately forwarded the
info to us, here at Drive Clean. Address in hand, we turned our crews
around and headed-off to a northern region of Connecticut where we
unearthed and restored this classic car. Watch as we assess our find,
remove years of accumulated filth and grime, and initiate the paint
correction phase on this 912's "Irish Green" shell.
Abandoned 1950s Dodge dump truck barn find
Not a true "barn find", but exciting to find nonetheless. I've caught
glimpses of this truck several times a week for 10 years. It's completely
hidden within the undergrowth of an old farmstead. It was worth the battle
with mosquitos and stinging nettles to get close to this rusty relic.
