Barn Find 1939 19′ Barrel Back. It Was Just Sitting There In The Barn!
For many in the hobby, pasion, sport, lifestyle of classic boating, a Barrel Back is the icon of all classic boats. And a 19 footer is the mother load. Of course since that has been the case, all of them have been restored once or in some cases twice. This barn find Barrelback is all original…owned by this second owner since 1958 and has been in dry storage for the last 55 years! Bugatti windshield and all hardware including spotlight! The owner started to strip this one down to refinish and .. well.. stopped. And it sat, and sat, and sat.. So now, thanks to the good folks at Antique Boat America, CLICK HERE it can sit at your place, then you can refinish it, and it can sit on a new trailer, so you can take it to your home or show, and it can sit in its slip in the water.
