Badass Barn Find – a 1969 Chevy Carmaro SS | Going Wheeled

SHOT Show 2019 will be upon us in just a few days, so we’ve mostly been preoccupied with word of new guns, new gear, nifty doohickeys and wonderful thingamawhatsit from the firearm-tactical space. The Detroit Car Show is happening now, though, and it was while reading some of the news from there that we came across this article. We figured you might be interested.

It’s a 1969 Chevy Camaro SS, as Brian Silvestro reports in an article on Road & Track, and when it was pulled out of an airplane hangar after 20 years of neglect it fired right up.

Says Silvestro,

“There’s no rust or body damage from what we can see—just some flat tires and a thick layer of dust. The battery, starter motor, carburetor, oil, and fuel were replaced, and shockingly, the car fired right up. There’s no misfiring, no smoke from the exhaust, and healthy oil pressure, according to the seller. Though it certainly needs some attention (tires, brakes, etc.), the car runs and drives under its own power.”

This 1969 Camaro SS was a barn find in California - after 20 years it started right up.
