In Waco, Texas there was a man named David Waco; leader of the Branch Davidians. He believed that he unlocked the code of the Seven Seals in the Book of Revelation, which predicted events leading up to the Apocalypse. From that point on he told his followers that the Lord willed the Davidians to build an “Army of God.” As a result, they started stockpiling weapons. And later on there was a 51 day standoff between the Davidians and the FBI. This got the attention of the whole nation at the time.

Streetside Classics of Phoenix, Arizona lists the car on its website for $61,995. The listing doesn’t mention ties to Koresh anywhere in its description, but after some digging, we found the vehicle’s VIN – 124378L302009 – matches the VIN of Koresh’s Camaro from 1993 reports, and a 2004 auction listing.

The car sold for just $37,000 in 2004, well below the seller’s $80,000 asking price. Its buyer, 64-year-old Donald Feldpausch of San Antonio, Texas picked up the car as “an investment,” according to a report. “I’ll bring it out for things like parades, but I’ll keep it in an air-conditioned storage. Someone will come around to buy it.”

Now fully restored, 25-years after its time at the compound, the Camaro still has some inklings of Koresh in its DNA. The same 500-horsepower (372-kilowatt) 427-cubic inch V8, built by Koresh, is underhood. As far as we can tell from the photos, it loses the “DAVIDES 427 GO GOD” engraving that was originally on the car.
