1969 Camaro RS/Z28 Barn Find

When was the last time you saw a 1969 Camaro RS/Z28 in this shape? How about in a Major Car Show?

When we first saw this car at the 2010 Forge Muscle Car Show we knew we had to get some photos. After all this is one rare Camaro. It is a 1969 RS/Z28 with the soft front bumper and only has 36,000 miles. Unfortunately, the car was parked in 1975 and isn’t in the best shape! It is mostly original according to the owner, Robert Hurst. The tires are obviously new and a few other parts were changed out back in the day just as most of us would have done but nothing major.

So here you have a low miles 1969 Camaro RS/Z28 and it is rusted beyond belief. What would you do with it? I can’t even figure out if I should post this in the Barn Find pages, our Feature Car pages, Project Car pages or simply call it a Rat Rod Muscle Car! It is surely an intriguing find.

The old Z28 302 doesn’t look so mean now does it?

What would you do with this car if you found it? I know a 1969 Camaro RS/Z28 can bring big money but I don’t think this car can be restored for what such cars are selling for today. Given that, how much would you pay for this car? I want to hear from you!

Not the RS/Z28 I dream about!

Check out the original tire and jack under the car.

Those new tires and wheels certainly look out of place.

See the hole in the floorboard?

What would you do with this car? Leave your comment below and let us know.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.

  1. Battleship gray primer and two passes over it with Clearcoat will prevent further rusting out.. Keep the body original and tune up the stock 302.. I had one and it would shake the dew off the hood with the factory cam!!

    Be worth it to restore and keep in the family another 50 years

  2. Love to see ORIGINAL cars can still be found. I would totally inspect the car and repair only the bad areas, keeping it original as possible. I have a ’69 plain jane that’s in worse condition. I’ve had it for 20+ years and haven’t had the time or funds to fix it like it should be. But I don’t believe in destroying originals, that’s why I still have mine. Good luck in whatever you do with this precious piece of american muscle. By the way do you still have the car and is it still forsale?

  3. She’s a super model! what a car, if I got my hands on this baby I would restore her to her original sheen and better . I’ve been looking for a car like this for about a year. I’m willing to pay a couple hundred for her but not in the thousands. but she is like my soul car so i’m willing to do a lot to restore her. love at first sight

  4. That car is doable, and it’s not hacked at all, which in my opinion is the most important thing. I would make it drivable, and that’s it. Then I would drive it. Because what good is a car if your not going to drive it. Someone will probably buy it sooner or later, good luck.

  5. I WOULD GET IT RUNNING, REPLACE WHAT EVER IT NEEDED TO MAKE IT DEPENDABLE AND RIIIIIIIIIIIDE

  6. I’D JUST LIKE TO BE THE GUY WHO WALKED IN THE BARN TO SEE IT FOR SALE AND TRYING TO KEEP A STRAIGHT FACE AND NOT SHOWING I WAS NOT LEAVING THIS BARN WITHOUT IT
