Despite the first Arab Oil Embargo running most of the ponycar class into brick walls and forcing the Ford Mustang into an economy drive after 1973, GM stayed the course with its Camaro and Firebird. This 1973 Camaro Z28 has been restored and improved since it left the factory.
Built during the second week of December 1972 in GMs Norwood, Ohio factory, this Fbody is the beneficiary of a full restoration. Dressed in red with black racing stripes, the cars paint and trim are in excellent overall condition. The cars windows are clear and intact while its lights look great.
The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery appears new and the chrome bumpers are in excellent order. This was the final model year for the quad taillights and nonwraparound rear window.
This Camaro rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/A white letter tires, 235/60R15 in front and 275/60R15 in back. Each tire is mounted on black, fivespoke wheels with bowtie center caps. All wheels and tires are in very good order.
Under that counterbalanced hood is a 454 CID bigblock V8 engine with a fourbarrel carb. Backing this motor is a Muncie M20 fourspeed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes.
Open either door to see the standard black vinyl interior (code 775). The front buckets (code A51) and rear demibuckets are in overall excellent order while the complementing black carpet is in very good condition. The matching headliner looks fantastic and the fourspoke steering wheel donated from the Chevy Vega is in great condition. The instrument panel and inner door liners are in all in excellent shape. The padded dashtop is crackfree. The floor mounted shifter emerges from the driveshaft tunnel and is topped with a white ball. There are three ancillary aftermarket gauges (coolant temp, ammeter, oil pressure) mounted beneath the dash and theres an AM/FM stereo.
The 1973 model year incorporated standard impactabsorbing front bumper system to meet new nodamage standards in five miles per hour NHTSA safety legislation. The Rally Sport option, with its chrome bumperettes on either side of an impact absorbing urethane grill surround, continued for one more year due to creative bracing behind the front sheet metal.
A new Type LT model was offered in 1973, with a quieter and betterappointed interior, full instrumentation, Rallystyle wheels, variableratio steering, sport mirrors, and hidden windshield wipers, among other upgrades. The Super Sport package was dropped, and the big block 396 CID V8 was no longer available. Power was down due to new emissions standards, with the toprated 350 CID V8. The engine was switched from solidlifters to hydraulic tappets. Air conditioning became available as an option with this engine. The Z28 option could be ordered on both the sport coupe and LT models. When the Z28 and Type LT options were combined, the usual Z28 badges, stripes, and graphics were deleted.
Other changes included a new consolemounted shifter for automatic transmissions similar to the shifter used in Pontiac Firebirds replacing the Buicklike horseshoe shifter of previous Camaros and the reintroduction of power windows to the option list for the first time since 1969, with the switches mounted in the console.
Recovering from the strike, Camaro sales increased to 96,751 units during a record sales year industrywide.
Competition to this Camaro in 1973 was AMCs Javelin, Dodges Challenger, Fords Mustang, Mercurys Cougar, Plymouths Barracuda and Pontiacs Firebird.
