If you remember, not long ago we had an article where we informed you about 60 French Barn Find Classics!!! Apparently, they belonged to the shipping magnate Roger Baillon who wanted to open his own museum!
Last week, the `Artcurial` auction house from France, paid a STUNNING AMOUNT of money for Baillon`s Collection – 25.15 MILLION EUROS! The auction was held at the Petromobile Paris event! Just before it, a very important model – the `36 Panhard-Levassor Dynamic-X76 coupé junior was sold to the Automobile Museum of Compiegne!
Among all Baillon Collection of exactly 59 vehicles, the most valued ones were the Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider, sold at a high price of 16.3 million euros! Moreover, we have another extremely expensive deal -- a Maserati-A6G-2000 Gran-Sport Berlinetta-Frua, sold for 2 million Euros which made it the second most expensive vehicle! It was purchased by an American buyer, a great lover of classic cars!
However, the Talbot-Lago T26 Grand-Sport SWB is going to stay in “the oldest continent” as it exceeded its estimate by 1 MILLION EUROS! We know you`re eager to see the French barn find, so feel free to do so!
Anyway, how about this GM barn find?
