Matt Murray is the name behind the YouTube channel IronTrap Garage, known for his videos about antique cars from the Second World War era. He auctioned 50 classic and antique cars in a barn in Pennsylvania, USA.
There are many iconic models in the collection, including the Ford and Chevrolet models built in the 1930s. The collection belongs to Larry Schroll, who collects classic cars by trading while living in Pennsylvania. He died in 2018, and his family became the sole heir to the property with the car collection.
After seeing the classic car collection in the barn, the Schroll family decided to organize a special auction for vehicles. They reached Matt Murray, who created the YouTube channel IronTrap Garage, an expert on antique cars and high-performance vehicles from the Second World War era. And they asked for help with the auction.
Murray went to the barn where the vehicles were located. Saying that all vehicles were built between the 1920s and 1970s, Murray notes that about 99 percent of the collection consists of priceless cars.
YouTuber says Schroll has worked in a paper mill all his life. "He was just a blue-collar man. He started collecting cars in 1961 and continued until the 1990s. While some collectors only focused on a particular brand or car age, Schroll bought what he liked regardless of these criteria," he said.
In return for his help, Murray will receive two vehicles from the collection, a 1932 Ford five-window coupe and a 1934 Ford Tudor. He also plans to shoot new videos about the restoration process of these two vehicles. The collection, which includes many cult models such as the 1973 Chevrolet Corvette and the 1955 Ford Thunderbird, will be auctioned soon.
