  A few years ago I wanted to expand my rain water harvesting capacity by 440 gallons (Currently have a 500 gal tank in place) and I got 7-8 55 gal food grade (Blue, they contained Kikkoman's soy sauce) barrels and set them up under my back deck, plumbed them together to collect rain water from front of house.
   Can't use the barrels now as part of the area was used up when we had our  generator installed. The generators wiring and fuel supply runs right where I had the barrels in place.
  I can get pictures of a few of the barrels, if any interest. (Don't have any at moment)
 So, I have 7 or 8(?) 55 gal barrels, $20 each.   Each barrel still retains its original bungs in their tops, and each one has two 1.5" holes drilled for piping, located near the tops (Vents) and bottoms (Outlets) on the side.  Each barrel can easily be fitted again for use with garden faucets.

Are these plastic barrels?  I'll take them.  Do you have all the fittings too, to put it back into working order?

  Just sold 3 of them.  No i don't have the fittings to put them back working.  They were all ganged together to make a 440 gal tank.  The holes in the sides are for 1 1/4" PVC. The tops are in tact, (No large holes)

These are the remaining barrels.  Someone local has interest in 3 of them, (But no cash in hand yet) one barrel has a small 2to 3" hole on the top, it was the sediment prefilter for the remaining (First in line to get water) for the remaining 7
