The location remains a mystery, but after a 20-minute hike through a forest, Colin and his friend find the old barn.
A few cars are scattered outside, but like the barn, they’re almost obscured by the sheer amount of foliage that has grown around them.
Outside is one of many Mark II Cortinas, as well as one of a few very rare Ford Sierra XR4is.
Colin then goes into the main barn where he finds a Mark I Transit Van that is halfway through a restoration that has been abandoned.
Next is a mint green first-generation Ford Fiesta, and Colin asks, “How many of these can there be left in the world?”
It’s then on two other Sierra XR4is, including an ultra-rare model only sold in the US.
But towards the end of the video a very special model can be seen – a Lotus Ford Cortina Mark II.
Only around 4,000 (versus more than a million regular Cortina Mark II) of these sporty models were ever made, making this an incredible find.
