This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Spent Decades Locked in Barns, Looks Solid

The 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle is part of the second-generation lineup and introduced rather subtle styling changes. Those included minor front-end refinements such as a single chrome bar between the quad headlights and the slightly retouched grille.

The second-generation Chevelle was offered with a wide array of engines, starting with two different 6-cylinder units (230/3.8-liter and 250/4.1-liter) and ending with the 454-ci (7.4-liter) big-block V8 available on the 1970 SS.

The Chevelle you’re looking at here is a 6-cylinder unit, but what’s more special about it is how it survived being moved from one barn to another and still having a strong desire to get back on the road.

As the current owner of the car explains, it was originally parked in a barn in Minnesota for no fewer than 25 years, after which the Chevelle was moved to another barn once again. The Chevy was eventually purchased a few years ago and already received a bunch of improvements, but now it needs a new owner to continue the whole thing.

According to a listing on eBay where the Chevelle is for sale, the car already comes with a repainted dash, new windshield, and patches on the floor, and by the looks of things, it runs on a rather solid frame. The rust shouldn’t be an issue this time, and this is clearly good news, especially for a car that spent decades locked in barns.

What’s more, the Chevelle also comes with a series of extras, including some SS goodies, such as an aftermarket hood and SS rims with BFG tires.

At first glance, the car is a good candidate for a thorough restoration, and it’s great to see a 1969 Chevelle getting a second chance, no matter the engine under the hood. And as it turns out, quite a lot of people are happy about this, too. Over 35 bids have already been received as part of the auction on eBay. The highest is $5,200, but the reserve is yet to be met.
