Barn find expert Sean Dever travels to Moultrie, GA for a classic trades meet featuring some of Chevy’s best classic muscle cars.
A new video from the Junkyards and Barn Finds YouTube channel featuring Sean shows more than two dozen classic cars at an event in South Georgia. These vehicle treasures date mostly from the 1960s and 1970s, but a few squeak from before and after those decades.
Held twice a year at a former air force base, the Moultrie Automotive Swap Meet attracts large regional crowds. But moderator Sean Dever’s tour almost seems like a post-apocalyptic encounter, because only a few people are among the many vehicles that are distributed on a disused runway.
The overcast sky adds to the eeriness of the video but is still a feast for the eyes of any car enthusiast.
A mostly GM crowd
Whether intentional or not, it is interesting that most of the vehicles in front of the camera are from General Motors. Nonetheless, there’s still an occasional Ford Mustang or Mopar to drool over. The lack of vendors makes it difficult for Dever to learn more about these cars, so he’s forced to rely on a few notes scrawled on the windshields and his observations.
Dever is here to explore, not buy. However, some cars have sale prices, making the video informative for the curious and collectors alike.
Collectible vehicles ready for the road
A 1970 Chevrolet C-30 (5:00) dual pickup is one of the first vehicles to catch Dever’s attention thanks to its shiny red exterior and clean-looking condition. Equipped with a 400-cubic-inch big-block V8, power steering and power brakes, this Chevy appears as ready to drive now as it did when it left the factory.
Nearby is a mint condition 1962 Buick Skylark coupe (5:31) with an asking price of $12,500, making it a potential entry-level vehicle for a budding car collector. At the same time, a V8 and four-speed give this crisp black Buick relevance today. A look inside reveals an original cabin that is surprisingly well stocked for a 60-year-old vehicle.
Chevy Camaro and Chevelle overloaded
Camaro fans will find Nirvana on this outing, as this Chevy sports car represents many vehicles in Dever’s video. A 1967 Camaro SS/RS (8:15) showcases the first generation model and houses restomod elements such as a digital dashboard. Later we see a silver 1967 Camaro (14:54) with a 350 V8 and automatic transmission powertrain next to a yellow and black Camaro (15:34) restomod.
There’s plenty to like for Chevelle lovers too, including a red 1967 Chevelle SS (17:30) with a 396 V8 and 12-hole rear differential.
