A rustbucket Jaguar car that was used as a chicken coop before spending 25 years entombed behind a false wall in a barn has been discovered.<br />
<br />
The 1958 Jaguar XK150 drophead coupe belonged to a farmer who bought it as a restoration project about 30 years ago.<br />
<br />
But it languished at one end of his barn where his chickens roosted in it. Unable to move it, the owner decided to brick it in and built a breeze block wall to hide it.<br />
<br />
It was left to go to rust and ruin for a quarter-of-a-century before a car buff learnt of the rare motor's existence and offered to buy it.
