1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS LT1973 Z/28 RS-LT with factory A/C. ALL ORIGINAL AND UNRESTORED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A HIGH-QUALITY REPAINT IN 2008 AND A FEW DEALER INSTALLED OPTIONS WHEN IT WAS BOUGHT NEW! The original owner bought it with every available option except the vinyl top (power windows were late availability). The dealer installed dual-point ignition, an Edelbrock intake, Holley carburetor and a local muffler shop installed Hooker headers. It was a second vehicle for him, so he only put 13,000 miles on it between 1973-1982. The person that I bought it from was searching for a Corvette in 1982 when he stumbled across an ad in the Wheeler Dealer magazine for this car. He fell in love with it and took it home. It was also a second car for him, and like the first owner would only drive it in sunny weather. He put anadditional 48,000 miles on it between 1982 and when I purchased it. I have it listed at 62,000 miles because Istill drive it frequently so it might go over the 62,000while this listing runs.
I was very skeptical when the person that I bought it from told me that car had never been driven in the rain until I looked under the hood and read the original paper oil change sticker from the selling dealer on the radiator support from 1973. Any rain under the hood would have destroyed the sticker. The car was maintained by the same shop for the past 33 years. It has received hoses, belts and other general maintenance items, but it was never altered beyond the original dealer-installed components. It still has the entire original interior down to the floor mats, with the exception of the rear seat back that was professionally recovered using factory fabric. The carburetor, ignition and headers were replaced in 2008 instead of restoring the old ones, and the car was repainted in a base/clear version of the dark red metallic. The owner hated to repaint it, but the original lacquer paint was starting to deteriorate badly from age. He turned it over to one of the best painters in his area for a year and told him to take his time and do it right. He took the liberty of removing the LT badges from the car when it was repainted, but they come with the car if you want to have them reinstalled.
It is a no-excuses, unrestored and lightly dealer-modified car. It is one of the best 2nd Generation (1970 - 1973) Z/28's that you will find. The original motor and transmission have never been removed or rebuilt, as the car was adult owned and never abused. The original Firestone Wide Oval spare tire hasnever been removed from the trunk. The car still has all of the original glass,including the windshield. It is very hard to find one that hasn't been modified with a different radio, speakers, drivetrain, etc. It still has the original center caps and trim rings on the wheels, which have the correct roughtextured paintinstead of ones that you commonly see that arerestoredwith darker grey and too much sheen to them.
