Look hard enough and you can find examples of classic cars everywhere. The case proven with father and son team Terry and Preston who have uncovered many a fine muscle car over the years all around their home town of North Pole, Alaska.


The duo have built up quite a collection over the years according to the video above by Hagerty. (it’s also to be noted that the Pontiac in the video was referred to as a Ram Air IV, but in reality is a Ram Air III) Their collection range from shiny restorations to barn finds which clearly need some TLC.

A 1969 Ford Torino Cobra is the first vehicle for inspection found by Preston locally buried under a few feet of snow in someone’s backyard. The car is in great condition, still wearing its original green paint. The Torino is apparently one of one as it was ordered with the clock option and an automatic, but the main details from the Marti Report shows the Torino to originally be a promo car which sat for a year at a dealership in California.

Next up two Mustangs in the form of a 1967 C-code fastback in candy-apple red and a 1965 Mustang convertible, also a C-code. It’s clear they like their Pontiacs with a 1971 GTO, a 1967 LeMans “Post” coupe, a 1967 Pontiac Bonneville with a 428 V8 and the pride of the bunch a 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 400 Ram Air III which they purchased from Pontiac executive Jim Wangers.

Terry and Preston’s collection of vintage muscle cars is clearly impressive, especially so considering the conditions some of the vehicles were found. Maybe it’s time for us to get on our own barn finding hats and seeing what’s out there.
