Anyone familiar with the term “barn find” knows exactly what it means, and knows where to find them. Barns mostly, but neglected musclecars in general can be typically found all over in fields, storage units, abandoned gas stations, and in Germany. Wait, what??
Yes, information about this ’69 Camaro SS 350 sitting in a field, rusting away was recently submitted by a “Daniel in Germany” on CarsinBarns.com. According to Daniel, this car was originally built in Bienne, Switzerland long before anybody had ever heard of the phrase, “global economy.”
A legit Super Sport still wearing it’s original Dover White paint and Tuxedo Black hockey stick stripes, the car’s owner dropped it off at this mechanic’s shop where it currently sits over ten years ago, and never came back to retrieve it.
The original drivetrain, a 350/auto combination, lies near the car in the grass and Daniel claims to have tried to buy the Camaro several times in the past. Unfortunately, the mechanic who runs the shop where the Camaro sits no longer has any of the paperwork, including the owner’s phone number in order to help put the deal together.
Nobody wants to see this car deteriorate any further, so if you’re the German owner of this car and are reading this article, please sell it. Or at least go reclaim it and put it in a warm, dry storage facility. A beautiful car is a terrible thing to waste.
