69 Z28 Barn Find

amazing;

http://www.carsinbarns.com/new170.html









"My buddy and I found this near perfect '69 Camaro Z28/RS in an actual barn on an old man's property. The car had been parked there for many years, and seems to have survived with little or no decay. To my surprise, the owner was willing to sell the car, and we made a fair deal. We got the car out and cleaned it up, did a little maintenance and had it back on the road! Keep looking there are cars out there! Most of the time they're 'not for sale' but sometimes they are!"

My money is on that car not being what the emblems say it is. No RS backup lights below the rear bumper, emblem is in the wrong spot on the front fender, no padded rear bumperettes... car in a barn story too....

i have seen RSs without the bumperettes, Z28 should all have them, but it should have the backup lights.

like this;



this one has both;





my guess is it is an RS, with the Z28 badges added??? but the taillights should have the back up light in them like this;

There are actually 3 different tail light lenses you could get on a '69 Camaro. The Z/28 could come with any one of them depending on what options you ordered.

"Standard" which has no chrome trim on the 2 vertical dividers and a white backup light lens in the middle.

"Style Trim" ones that come with the "Style Trim" option are identical to "Standard" except the vertical dividers on either side of the white backup lamp lens have chrome trim added. Style trim also added bright aluminum wheel well mouldings, stainless roof rail gutter mouldings and probably a few other items as well.

There are the "RS" option lenses with the single horizontal divider. Those are part of the RS package that included the hide away head lights and other items.

That is a Harrison county plate (southeast Indiana), issued from 1993-1998. So, that car was in the barn at least 14 years.

I dont think that car has the RS option, missing back-up lamp, fender rally sport emblems. I'd almost bet its not a real Z28. This should all be checked before dumping tons of cash in it.

Looks like the one I found a year ago.....met the guy at an autoparts store and he looked a little ratty. I had a customers black SS clone and he says "nice car". I replied from here, but poor body work up close. He then says "I got one in my barn......been there for 17 years and was gonna make a race car out of it but never did. Its a Z28" he claims. Every one claims this so I took it with a grain of salt. He rights his phone # down on the back of the speed shops card and I forget about him until a few months later. I see it in my wallet and call him. He says "come on over".

He has all sorts of out buildings and horses, etc. Shows me his wifes 70 cutlass convert she bought new in one...wont sell theat, but he pulls open a barns doors and there sits a 69 covered w/pigion crap and dust/dirt/boxes/parts. I get to the vin tag and sure enough...X11 DZ 302 car!!!!!! Dusk blue/whit stripes and he has spare NOS hood, air cleaner assy, emblems, consols. shifters, fenders, un freaking real!!! Paid $5k and got it to the shop....2 days later a guy offers over twice that as is so (I regret this) sold it and still have a ton of spare trim & other parts here.

Z-28 should be X33 or X77.
