Опубликовано: 23 май 2019
This unbelievable 1 of only 400 ever produced with aluminum cylinder heads 1969 SS396 L78 L89 Chevelle was recently discovered in its resting spot of nearly 40 years with only 2,200 miles on the odometer. The car was purchased new in Ohio and then sold to the current owner in 1975. The current owner stored the car in 1981 in its current location and it has never moved. The special Burnished Brown “Root Beer” Chevelle is nearly all original paint and was born with heavy duty Muncie M22 trans and 4.10 positraction.

  • WHAT A NICE CAR ITS A REAL SHAME THAT THIS CAR HASNT BEEN DRIVEN IN 38 YEARS

  • Its not so much the driving of the cars..but the preservation of them..enjoying your work Patrick!!

  • Burnished brown? I see a lot of dust. You couldn't see to wipe it off huh?

  • Wow!

  • Ahhh 69 what a year never be another year like it

  • Omg drive it!!!

  • Awesome stuff !

  • Wow! That's Gold!

  • Are they selling?

  • I used to have one they went great in a straight line

  • 🔥❤

  • Just sad that it is just sitting there. Drive it take it to shows. Just can’t understand these folks with theses rare cars that just sit.

  • Well let’s get it running and on the road

  • Look for paperwork behind glove look for paperwork behind glove box

  • If they clean that up would that go for at a Barrett-Jackson auction absolutely beautiful car

  • My uncle has a 68 396 4 speed that he got new in 68. I'm 46 and have only seen it driven 2 times in parades, I'm thinking it has around 38k miles. Just like this one, it's all original paint and interior. It's every bit as clean as this one. It's been covered in his garage as long as I can remember. What's makes me sick, is he's getting on up in years and he LOVES that car. He'll never sell it. This last 4th of July he told me he's fixing to dig a hole out back, push it and a mint 71 Chevy C-10, he also bought new, off in the hole. Smash them both with his track hoe. Burn them... then bury them forever. He told me with tears in his eyes no one will ever love that car like he does. And he's 100% serious about it. I'm guessing he came back from Vietnam to that car. Married and lost her just a few years ago, raised 3 daughters and every other memory for the last 50 years is stored in that old 68 Chevelle... He's taking it with him. Wish I could post a pic on here, it's immaculate inside and out.

    • chris Rosenthal you can contact me at 931-241-9908. Tell your uncle that’s the reason I got into documenting these barn finds. My video and narration serves as permanent record others to review and learn about the car’s life and owner. That way all his hard work and sacrifice doesn’t get forgotten.

  • Wow! I've never seen one in that color!

  • What would a beauty like her be worth in 2019 money?

  • ((

  • My dream car.

  • I was hoping to see her all cleaned up

  • START THAT BITCH UP AREADY !

  • Build sheet on top of gas tank!!

  • Why do you buy a car and let it sit for over 40 years?

  • 2nd body broadcast copy might be in the left front inner fender well. That's where mine was covered in rust proofing. It was vin#134279K386085. Lost track of it years ago. Miss it BAD!

  • 😀😀😀👍👍👍

  • Which is it L78 396 or and L89 427???????????????????????

  • WOW! Just....WOW! That sure is a beautiful Chevelle! Thank you for sharing. 👍

  • Beautiful car I love bucket seats and its in the floor

  • That is a AWESOME car. Bless the man that left it untouched, that car is Mecum's and Barrett/Jackson worthy

  • Thanks for sharing, This one is special,

  • God awful color!

  • Check behind glove box for build sheet, as well as flap on top of gas tank, headliner, under carpet just to name a few places a build sheet would be. Does car still have protect-o-plate? That will tell you options as well as what shift it was built on what day.

  • never find another one like that one,,

  • do you authenticate camaros? have a 92' Anniversary. white w/red stripes. possible l98 car. 1 of 4 maybe?

  • Dusty but very Beautiful

  • Great film, Glenn! I can imagine the value of this Chevelle as a "survivor" would pert near rival that of a fully restored 1970 Chevelle 454 LS6. I wonder what value alone on the original Crager S/S rims would be.

  • That Sun Super tac brought back some memory’s.

  • Patrick , what do you think that car is worth?

  • Wow..that superb front end..the quality and straightness of it as you walk around front is incredible..I was always looking for a '70 when in fact the 68-69 front is true chevelle...thanks Mr McConaughey for another trip back in the day!

  • This isn't a barn find... Owner knows where it's at and it's in a garage... People have cheapened the barn find idea and what a barn find actually is. Not every car sitting in a garage is a barn find. If that's the case I've got a couple... Hell I have a couple field finds sitting in my yard!!!

  • Will we be able to see it when it is cleaned up? The brown looks like it will be beautiful!

  • If I was 60 and had a car like this I would do one of two things: Either sell it for an uber amount of money and get another super nice Chevelle SS to drive and enjoy while still enjoying mega profits from the sale OR I would start driving and enjoying this one while I can. When I'm gone this car will still exist so why not really enjoy it while I am still existing? Awesome job preserving it but it's time to drive it a little now.

  • Please show video of the car after clean-up

  • Love that Coors coil

  • My identical car from 50 years ago has been restored. Unbelievable! Stripe and cowl induction not correct but wow www.thesupercarregistry.net/forum/showthread.php?t=154746

  • I didn’t know Mathew Mconaguhey was a barn find hunter. Lol

  • Great car Patrick. Unbelievable mileage and condition, better than the Z28 IMHO.

  • Your assumption of car being pulled off line , is correct. I owned a Chevy 4 door malibu, it was pulled off , to have a Tonawanda team built 307.

  • i asked this ranch when they first got it if they needed any scrap hauled off and they ask if i haul cars too i said yes no problem as long as u have a title i can scrap it then they show me 8 cars and trucks a mix no problem then he says there are some in the shop u mite want to keep these there was a 79 chevy short wide 4x4 full option truck in mint condition under 35,000 miles on it 400 sb with 400 turbo then there were 2 old camero's that some one was working on building them the truck box was full of parts 2 454 strokers one built with 6000 miles the other stock with 38,000 miles on it a fresh 327 4 bolt sitting on a engine stand ready to put in car then he gives me a 38 foot motor home really nice one he said just get all out of here i thought i went to heaven since i'm a chevy guy but i do like fords but i do get a lot of good project cars

  • Wow! Dust it off and take it for a spin!!.

  • Not for sale but car sates in garage dust on it what a waste...

  • Great find 👍

  • When was it parked in that garage?

  • An Awesome find for sure, being from Ohio, I can understand why it wasn't out on the roads much. Thank you for sharing.!!

  • Why do you make every car you find seem like there so rare ??? Its a damn big block car that some one has been screwing with like we all did back then and i still do and there were made than 400 get you facts straight

  • Wow

  • >16 year old gets this car brand new boomers were truly the most privileged generation LOL

    • and the kids now who drive bmw m3s to school?

  • Great video

  • i hope it was stored properly. gas tank & lines will probably need replacing along w/ all rubber. the window seals , trunk seals, tires hoses & bushings for suspension. i love that model of Chevelle . an l89 is pretty rare , manual transmission & were talking yrs . of enjoyment.
