This Super-Clean Numbers-Matching Camaro Is One Serious Barn Find

It doesn't get much better than this.


Barn finds are often a win-lose situation. Finding a rare car stashed away means years of neglect, and often, lots of needed repairs. This 1969 Chevy Camaro SS, however, was just pulled out of an airplane hangar in California after sitting for more than two decades, and once it was treated to a fresh set of fluids, it fired right up without issue. It's incredibly clean inside and out, and now, . You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

According to the description, this Camaro was recently acquired from the second owner. Judging by the pictures, it looks like it was neglected, but stored in a dry, clean place. 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. Pretty impressive considering this is a car from the 1960s, and it's been sitting for over 20 years untouched.

Pictures included in the listing show a clean underbody and engine bay. The owner claims the car is matching-numbers too, which is great. The odometer reads 14,011 miles, but the owner speculates it's turned over at least once, meaning true mileage is somewhere around 114,011 miles. Not that it matters—this thing is cleaner most other barn finds we've seen.

It's currently and seven days remaining. Considering this car's condition and originality, we'd say it'll sell for a whole lot more than that.
