Nice! 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS

This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS is a true barn find from Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. It’s listed here on eBay where enthusiastic bidding is up to $14k already and has met reserve. The story is that a personal friend of the seller bought the car in the late 1980’s with a blown engine. He put a 305 in the car and started to have the original 327 rebuilt. The seller has included a lot of pictures at this link and a video at this link, so there’s plenty of information to go with (that may be part of the reason for the enthusiastic bidding). Said to run well, with mostly original equipment apart from the engine, the car certainly looks nice and I agree with the seller that with a little bit of work and a few hundred dollars, you could drive this car and enjoy it while you decided if you wanted to fix it further. In the mood for a Camaro? Does the price seem right to you?

    Another car covered with 20 years of dirt. WOW! that will make it worth way more! I still don’t see why people think seeing a dirty car will prove it was sitting in a dirty environment for a long time, and then conclude that’s it’s a good thing.

    Nice and yes a before (dirty) after (clean) pictures would be nice. If it goes no higher than the 15K it’s at now I think it’s a good deal with a nonmatching motor.

    I love first generation Camaros like this one. And I like them better without the rear spoiler. I don’t remember seeing many Camaros with rear spoilers back in the 1970s and 80s but now they all seem to have them.

    there’s a lot of meat to chew on here here. this car should clean up nicely. the 327 is a very desireable motor and should be quite easy to bring back to life. provided that no hidden rust or any other “dirty” secrets, this is a great example…

    the “dirt is patina” is a concept that was developed by the marketing departments of the big auciton houses. i can’t fault the aucitons for looking for new revenue generators, but as long as there’s an audience they will milk it for what its worth.. the demise of “dirt is patina” must start with the buyers…
