’67 Camaro Found In A Basement

Enthusiasts are always out on the lookout for cars buried in a barn or left out to rot in the fields of America. Sometimes we get lucky and find a solid car from someone looking to just rid of it for pennies on the dollar. But when was the last time you heard of a classic car being locked away in a basement?

Here's how Dave found his 'new' basement-occupying '67 Camaro.

Exactly. So when we ran across the story on BarnFinds.com of someone who found a completely solid ’67 Camaro being kept in a basement, we had to investigate. As you might have imagined, it was covered in dust when discovered.

However, once the new owner, Dave L. applied some soap and water to the dusty Camaro, he was well awarded for the fruits of his labor.

This first-year F-body is clean, like really clean. Unfortunately for power hungry gearheads, this isn’t a Z/28, Super Sport, or even a standard 307 V8 model, but in fact an entry-level 230ci. six-shooter.

The previous owner once had dreams for big block power, but once those dreams fell through the Camaro was left to collect dust in his basement. Weird, but at least it’s better than leaving it outside.

Then along came Dave who crossed paths with the forgotten Camaro just recently, and submitted his story to the Barn Finds website. While details of where, why, and how much money was exchanged have yet to surface, we do know that Dave’s plans include enjoying the car for what it is.

No engine swap, no suspension reconfiguration, no customizing at all. Just a thorough cleaning, and all of the obvious maintenance updates like new brakes, fresh gas, an oil change, and a tuneup. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?
