The words “barn find” tend to be overused, however, this may very well be, as the auctioneers have named it, the “ultimate barn find estate auction.” It’s a jaw dropper. It’s the estate of William L. King Jr who was involved in racing his whole life and evidently spent much of his money and many years collecting an enormous number of vehicles and parts.
Indian motorcycle collectors and restorers, be sure to check this out!
If you like any kind of vintage and antique items, not just vehicles, this is for you, but if you’re a motorhead, well, this is REALLY for you. Indian motorcycles, lots of motorcycles, engines and parts, sheet metal, trim, sidecars, it’s huge. Harleys, too. Then there are the Corvettes and all kinds of engines and parts for muscle cars and tractors and toys and guns and furniture and …, well, you get the idea.
The estate is in southern Ohio between Dayton and Cincinnati, but the auction itself is online. It looks like they’re adding more items constantly as they go through and catalog everything.
Very, very interesting.
Thanks for the tip, Ed!
