A 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is one of the true giants of the classic muscle car genre. Many classic car enthusiasts and gearheads alike would love to acquire one of these vintage ponies for a project.
The SS is one of the rarest models of this particular car, and that’s exactly what Parker from Backyard Barn Finds uncovers when he sifts through the items at a garage sale in his latest YouTube video.
A 1969 Camaro SS Sitting For 28 Years
Parker from the Backyard Barn Finds YouTube channel has stopped by a garage sale and found an orange 1969 Camaro SS that has been sitting since 1995. The car isn’t intact, and there are parts spread out around the garage. But there’s enough in place that Parker can identify the dual fuel lines, and the tag reading “X11” that confirms that this car is an SS.
Parker suspects the previous owner restored the car at some point in the distant past, but it’s certainly going to need another round of restoration.
This four-speed 1969 Camaro SS barn find features houndstooth seats and deluxe interior judging by the woodgrain glovebox. It’s quite a good find, despite the floorboards needing panel replacement due to some holes. But there’s not a lot of rust on this classic, which makes it a good option for a restoration project.
Parker searches through the clutter of this garage and locates the front grill, center console, both doors, the dashboard which indicates 132,000 miles, and some extra parts from another classic Chevy Camaro.
He’s seen enough to convince him to buy the car. But as he continues his search around the garage, he finds a classic Datsun 240Z that he would have also purchased but the owner doesn’t want to part with it. All in all, this is certainly a successful barn find and it will be wonderful to see this classic Camaro driving again when it’s fully restored.
