Real Barn Find Ford Sierra 4×4 rescue required crane and digger! 4k

From The Late Brake Show.

Real Barn Find Ford Sierra 4×4 rescue required crane and digger! When a guy called Richard Cheeseman from Kent contacted The Late Brake Show to say he wasn’t sure if his 1989 Ford Sierra GLS 2.9i 4×4 was of sufficient barn find status, naturally we wanted to know more.

Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show (don’t forget to subscribe on your way out).

Firstly, the scenario. Richard hadn’t seen the car since parking it at the back of his brother in-law’s old chicken shed and throwing a thick truck side-curtain over it. That was 20 years ago. The shed was used by the family as a dumping ground for horticultural machinery, farming bric-a-brac and random car parts. But here’s the thing; the barn roof partially collapsed two years ago, and it was right in the area where the Sierra lurked. Was it ruined? Was it an incredible time capsule? He didn’t know.
