Old barns hide all sorts of treasures—signs, gas pumps, safes. But probably the coolest thing you could find in a barn is a car.

This time around it’s a 1971 Dodge Charger R/T, which was hiding out in Finland of all places. How this Dodge ended up in Finland, no one knows, but now this classic in need of restoration is up for auction on eBay.

What you see is what you get, and you can see that this is a huge project for someone with plenty of time and deep pockets.

 The paint needs some work, but the chrome looks to be in remarkably good condition. The original factory stripes and 440 badges are there, too. Unfortunately, there’s a lot that’s missing, including the engine.

No engine, no gearbox, and an interior that is pretty trashed might hold you back from making a bid, but if you’ve been looking for a project car that will keep you busy for untold weekends, here you go. The seller doesn’t provide details, but he does have plenty of pictures so you get a true feel for the car’s condition. According to BarnFinds, this is just one of several restoration jobs the seller has up for auction.
There’s plenty of time to place your bid if you think it’s the car for you. It would be great to think someone will buy this and restore it, but there’s just as good a chance no one will take on a project this big and it will continue to rust away in Finland. Let’s hope the former happens.
