This incredible car has been hidden from the world since 1979 and is now ready to hit the road once again in glorious fashion.
The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the nation’s most beloved pony cars because of its incredible style and “Mustang eating” focus on performance and speed. Classic Camaros are exceptionally awesome and hold a solid following from automotive enthusiasts of every age. So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the first-generation Camaro is one of the most sought-after pony cars in the American lineup. Finding one of these crazy cars is usually pretty easy for the lower performance model, but the upper trim levels are challenging to obtain at times. That simple fact makes this incredible find a random treasure hidden from the world for decades.

If you look closely, you’ll see the Z/28 badges on each side of this superb vehicle which show the vast history of the car and what it was likely used for. Speed was vital for this astounding automobile as it once sported a potent 302 ci V8 engine which was an excellent option for the time. Unfortunately, that engine is on the ground next to the car itself and has been that way since it was initially stored in 1979. Having been parked for so long, the interior is in a very predictably torn-up condition, with holes in the driver’s seat and dirt everywhere.
Despite the decades of being left to rot, the exterior of this vehicle appears to be in pretty decent condition as the beautiful blue paint still shines through the years of dust. The side pipes pronounce that this car ran a side-exit exhaust system which was a prevalent trend when this thing would have been driven. The vinyl top is still very much intact because all three storage locations this car has been in were inside, so the car was not exposed to the elements. Finally, after 40 years of sitting on and off, this car is being prepped for restoration in hopes of hitting the road once again.
