Are you looking for a really affordable project? If you are, don’t miss out on this 1969 Camaro that is up for sale in Bowling Green, Kentucky. There’s a lot of work that needs done, but for someone already planning a long-term project, this is a blank canvas for you to mold at will.

A custom build is actually the direction the current owner, Kiffen Jones, mentioned when we talked to him about this car.  The car is not a driver, nor is it complete, so you can do anything to it and you will not be defacing or altering an original, driver-quality Camaro. As Kiffen told us, “the buyer can build a drag car, race car, or make it theirs however they want, without cutting up an original piece of history.”

Kiffen is experienced in the industry, and knows what this kind of car can be worth. What he is offering here, is an affordable project that gives someone with the skills and time, the ability to buy a 1969 Camaro project. “What is so neat about this car is that a finished ’69 is worth a pot of gold,” Kiffen tells us,  “there are still guys out there that want to build an old musclecar that doesn’t need to be restored to original. Maybe they’ve got a good big-block or small-block laying around they want to use.”

One of the coolest things about this deal is that it comes with enough original GM body parts that it’s practically ready to be put back together. The parts that it comes with are; two GM 1/4 panels, a new core support, new front and rear valance panels, new tail light panel, new spoiler pan, and it includes a good hood and trunk lid. Kiffen told us. “There is also a good windshield for it. Some of these parts are from a ’68 that I just got through restoring. I had some left over pieces I thought I could throw in with this other car.”

A lot of the ‘new’ parts that go with this car came from the guy that Kiffen bought the car from. They came out of the loft of the previous owners barn. “This car came from a honey-hole that I found, that translates to more than one good car in one place,” Kiffen explained. “I’ve bought four so far, and there’s still more: a split bumper ’71 Camaro, a ’66 SS Chevelle, and a ’66 Chevy truck.”

It’s rare to find one of these cars for sale in any condition, and many times there is one of a few reasons why a collector car will come up for sale: someone is getting married, divorced, having a kid, or has just passed away.

If you are interested in the car, you cab take a look at the original ad here. Make sure to leave us a comment if you do. We want to see where this car ends up!
