If you’ve ever wanted to invest in a car collection and have the right place to build and rebuild the vehicles you own there may be a deal in store for you. There is a car collection in Canada that’s being put up for sale that not only will bring you a variety of amazing vehicles to enjoy but the land and the buildings on the land as well. This collection is located in Tappen, British Columbia and its comprised over 300 cars that have been collected by one man over the past forty years.
Mike Hall, who is now sixty years old began collecting these cars forty years ago and has converted his five acres of property into a haven for old cars, for junk cars and as an auto salvage location. The cars you’ll find among his collection include a 1927 Ford Model T truck, a 1947 Mercury Ute that came from Australia and a restored 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle that is powered by a 396 cubic inch big block V8 engine attached to a four-speed manual transmission. These are just a few of the cars you’ll see if you visit the collection Hall has put together.
The goal price for the collection, land and buildings is a full $1 million in the sale. There have been several inquiries to ask about the price and the property has been properly zoned for auto salvage. The buildings on the property include a 900 square-foot restoration shop, a 1,200 square-foot steel building and supplies to build more storage space if needed. Depending upon the vehicle, Mike Hall estimates the value of his collection to be anywhere between $500 and $35,000 per vehicle which makes this an interesting sale that could take place and both Hall and the new owner could feel like they’ve made a great deal.
Hall started collecting when he was twenty years old and it started with a collection of 50 cars which quickly grew. As long as he has been working he has been collecting cars and bringing them home, much to the dismay of his wife. During the day, Mike is a Highway Rock Scaler but he spends much of his free time working on the cars in the collection when he’s not buying up a new on to add to the collection already in place on the five acres of land.
If you’ve ever thought about moving up to Canada, and I know many people that have threatened to do just that in the past several months, this may be a great opportunity for you. You could have a ready-made collection of vehicles waiting for you to start working on them in the shop on the grounds. The work of collecting and bringing the cars to the property has been done for you and all you’d have to do is get to work. If nothing else, it does give you a way to dream about having a large number of older model cars that could be amazing to see in person in one location.
