Must have been hot in that barn, because the rear stripes shrunk! I call BS on this one
Did the stripes shrink? I think they were in the barn so long that they got lonely and moved closer together.

Well to be fair, the seller does say it had one repaint in 1981, which explains the incorrect rear stripe layout.
But I think I smell what you're calling on this one, at least on the story.

This is what my "Barn Find" motor looked like after 28 years in storage (well, it was really in a garage next to the house) - but you get the point.

Nice pebble grain steering wheel, but no "302" emblems on the "original" hood

A great example of actual barn conditions. Makes me think of that recent Boss 302 that was a "barn find". That must have been some magical barn, because that car looked very well preserved in such conditions.

When we pulled the engine/transmission  on my wife's car; for a rebuilding, we pushed it into an empty corner of a building my family owned.
I took my time rebuilding the engine; had a friend rebuild the transmission.    Just in the time it took to rebuild those, the under side of
her Camaro was home to many spider webs,  dust etc, that we had to clean off before reinstalling the engine/transmission.

Its always amazing to see a car labeled "barn find"; when the car looks really good.

Did anyone notice at the end of the auction there were 40 bids @ 50,300.00 and at the last 5 seconds or so it dropped to 39 bidders
and 50,200.00.
 By the way the radiator appears to be for an automatic. I looked at both a manual and an auto, there should not be a circle near the
cap.

  I knew a guy who found a '69 Z/28 in the late '70s. It was advertised in the paper as a 1969 Chevrolet 2-door sedan. An old woman was selling it. Her son had been killed in Vietnam and it had sat in an old carshed for years. He answered the ad and she led him out behind her house and opened the doors and there sat a 1969 Z/28 with 32,000 miles on it--completely original. Dark red with black stripes and cowl hood. He gave her $1200 for it, got it running, and drove it away. But the story didn't end happily. One night he was winding the 302 out and lost control and wrapped the thing around a telephone pole at over 100 mph. He survived but the car was completely destroyed. What a shame.
