House clearance Barn Find Classic Car - Before & After

Nationwide House Clearance were appointed to clear and clean a property in Berwick-upon-Tweed towards the end of 2014. The customer had informed us that there was several vehicles that also needed removed prior to the actual clearance. On the day of the clearance it was decided by the customer that two of the vehicles were to be kept by the family as they both started and were in working order, namely a motor-home and a small MPV. However, in the garage there was an old white car hidden away underneath lots of clutter and junk, that needed to be removed and disposed of.

This white car – at closer inspection – was obviously a rare and old car; a Mitsubishi Sapporo. The original plan was to call out a vehicle dismantler/scrap/salvage company, but the more we all stood and admired this Japanese machine, the more we all thought it deserved a better fate than to be crushed for scrap.

So the customer asked if we could somehow help him to sell it. We all agreed that the best way to do this would be via ebay so a few days after the clearance was carried out Nationwide House Clearance listed the vehicle on the popular online auction site with a modest reserve. Within days we were receiving many calls, e-mails, texts and the auction had received a lot of attention. 2 people actually visited the property to view the vehicle.

Despite all the interest, however, there could only be one winner. A Mr Ali from the West Midlands – who bought the car totally blind, having not seen it in person. Ourselves and Mr Ali had arranged to collect the car so off we all set – ourselves from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Mr Ali several hundred miles away in Coventry.

When we met up Mr Ali had arrived in a large recovery vehicle. It took 2 Nationwide House Clearance guys, a kind neighbour and Mr Ali over 1 hour to get the car out of the garage and onto the recovery truck. Mr Ali – good humoured throughout – often questioned what possessed him, but it turned out it was a car he always wanted to own.

He promised to restore it to its full glory and that he did, as the photos show. We are absolutely delighted as a company to have earned our customer some money, to have put an old classic into the hands of someone willing to lovingly restore it and for its previous owner who sadly passed away, to hopefully look down at what was once his pride and joy being lovingly used and driven.
