In a recent video shared by HotCars, Youtuber and car-enthusiast Ryan Brutt stumbles across a 1969 Plymouth GTX that’s been stored away in a barn for years, only to find a large sum of money hidden underneath the seats.
“I went on a trip to Iowa to pick up my green ’71 Dodge Challenger from Noel Automotive of West Branch, Iowa. While I was there, Noel was kind enough to take me on a little bit of a drive away to go check out a whole bunch of cool cars sitting in a field and a few in a barn and it’s on this adventure that we actually dug up $10,000 in the GTX.”
After showing us the 1971 Dodge Challenger he is taking home to restore, Brutt pans the camera over to the 1969 Plymouth GTX equipped with a 440cid V8 that looks to be finished in B3 Blue.
Brutt opens the door to reveal the blue upholstered interior housing piles of magazines. Among the piles of discarded papers, Brutt and the crew from Noel Automotive discovered $10,000 in cash underneath the front seat.
“What had occurred was the owner, over the last we don’t know who long, has been stashing envelopes full of about a thousand dollars underneath the front seat,” Brutt says. “It was really cool to uncover so much cash hidden without anyone knowing about.”
Of course, they did the noble thing and gave the money back to the owner of the GTX and the others cars in the barn.
