HOT ROD readers contact me all the time about unique cars sitting in barns. This month the barn in question was in my family’s hometown, on a route I’ve taken many times. Tucked in the corner was a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro convertible.

It wasn’t the rare 396ci version—this car was built with a 350—but it’s still 1 of 3,675 produced. This particular ’69 had been partially taken apart, but was still straight and clean. Alongside the Camaro was a unique two-seater. It looked like a ¾-scale Model T and was powered by a Wisconsin two-cylinder engine.

The owner put it away in a safe spot, behind a Chevy Corvair Rampside truck. Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier Rampside trucks were built from 1961–1965. They were rear-engine pickups with a ramp on the passenger side that could be lowered to facilitate loading the bed.
