If you’re looking to buy a classic Camaro, there are plenty of places on the internet to shop for one, though finding one in a decent condition for cheap will likely be difficult. A Junkyard is also a great place to look, though that is a full project. Alternatively, instead of shopping for one in the obvious places, you could do what Steve Ronin did on his YouTube channel and stumble across one in an abandoned mansion. And not in America. But in Italy, of all places.
Abandoned Chevrolet Camaro Find: Details
A doctor of the 1930s purchased a prestigious mansion on the edge of town, a structure that some believe was built in the late 1700s and was owned by a noble family somewhere in Europe. Steve Ronin became intrigued by the home and added it to his Urban Exploration series covering many fascinating places in Europe. Unfortunately, the previous owner mysteriously disappeared in the 1960s, so Ronin decided to explore the home. As you would expect, the site is quite eerie, complete with a grandfather clock that can be heard in the distance. But as Ronin made his way around a corner, he was surprised to come across a 1967 or 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Rally Sport (RS).
Fittingly, designers of the original Camaro did study many of the shapes and styles coming out of Italian automotive design of that era. So perhaps the look of the iconic Chevrolet pony car isn’t too out of place after all, in this case.
The Camaro has remained untouched since the ’60s, appearing to be in decent condition. The white exterior paint requires a good wash, and there are a few cobwebs, but that’s what you would expect with a car sitting in a creepy mansion. On the inside, everything original remains and is in excellent condition. Sure, the seats and interior need some detailing, but it would be a simple restoration project for the most part. Moreover, this Chevy Camaro Rally Sport is quite rare as it’s hard to come across ones with hidden headlights.
An abandoned mansion in Europe is likely the last place anyone would expect to find a classic Camaro. On the other hand, though, we suspect it may prove inspirational for the developers of Forza Horizon, that might find a way to implement a 1960s Chevrolet Camaro barn find into their game, hidden within a spooky abandoned mansion. That aside, the superb condition of the Chevrolet Camaro means that it should be a simple project to bring it back to life, and it appears Steve Ronin struck gold during this excursion.
