1969 Chevy Camaro Abandoned In Backyard Rescued
Seeing a cool 1969 Chevrolet Camaro sitting neglected in the outdoors is always sad.
These cars are noticed all over, especially in more rural areas or neighborhoods without HOAs.
There is a story behind each of them for sure, and if you’re like us you’ve probably wondered what exactly the deal is. In the end who in their right mind would allow an amazing car to just sit and decay? But going up, knocking on someone’s door, then asking them why they’re treating a classic car like a riding lawn sculpture isn’t exactly a great plan.
In our story we know a little bit about the situation and why the car sat for 18 years outside.
The owner received it as a high school graduation present and used it as a daily driver. But the ’69 Camaro started having so many problems it no longer worked as the guy’s primary transportation.
The fun weekend car came around, but eventually the repairs were costly for him to run at all. He parked it, and surely thought he would get it running again in the near future, but with some unforeseen financial challenges the opportunity never presented itself.
The car is not visible for people that are just driving by because is buried in the weeds, but thankfully the chassis hasn’t decided to turn into graham cracker or rejoin the earth. But we can’t deny the classic muscle car is going to need some serious work for it to be beautiful, although the guy does get it running reasonably well by the end of the video. Oh and has a sunroof.
Fortunately we have no real rust damage present. With clear coat peeling, it’s obvious the Camaro has been restored before, at least in part, so it’s not so bad. Considering all this, it’s definitely worth doing the difficult work of bringing it back to life, especially since this is one of the most beloved production years for the Camaro.
