Watch A 1970 Chevy Chevelle LS6 Barn Find

Steven Symes

This a true barn find, not some elaborate scheme, and it’s amazing.

Everyone dreams of that one amazing barn find. But after so many have been discovered is it possible to find any more? Of course, as the following video so clearly demonstrates. Patrick Glenn Nichols shows off an amazing discovery, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 left for dead in a warehouse surrounded by other cars and debris.

The car in question was on a person’s property, obviously in a rural area where authorities don’t regulate the accumulation of refuse. Nichols had heard of this car before and was tracking it down for well over a year. It just goes to show if you’re serious about hunting down barn finds, you have to be persistent or downright dogged in your pursuits.

All that effort from Nichols paid off big time when he finally tracked down the legendary American muscle car. This LS6 Chevelle has been confirmed as one of the few made in Flint, Michigan, adding further to its rarity and overall value.

A Tuxedo Black exterior has a heavy dusting earned through years of just sitting. There’s also a bullet hole in one of the front fenders, apparently the result of the owner way back in the day dating another man’s girlfriend. One of the headlights is mission, however the car overall is in surprisingly decent shape. Thanks to it having been stored inside most of its life, there’s not a much of a problem with rust, which is a serious issue for many of these cars.

Before you get too excited, the Chevelle isn’t for sale. That’s too bad, but this should prove to you that real barn finds do still exist. Of course, they’re difficult to find, otherwise someone else would have already done it. Don’t expect hunting such cars down to be easy, but the benefits can be tremendous, making your efforts more than worthwhile.
