Beautiful car! However in case you didn't know that is not a true "split bumper" as some call it (sorry!). There were two different front ends for '70-'73 Camaros, RS and non-RS. The RS (a.k.a. "split bumper") had round turn signals above the bumperettes, a urethane bumper surround around the grille, and re-enforced grille with vertical bumper strip up the middle. Non-RS had more rectangular turn lights that were under the full length bumper. It is somewhat common for people to put the RS bumperettes on a non-RS car.

RS SS on top, non-RS SS below

so update plus i could use some info and opinions, after fixing many issues i am thinking about going the ls7 route i talked about in another thread before i start traveling in her. but what are peoples thoughts of just running a holley efi set up? i am also going to change over to a 6 speed behind the bb and change the rear to a 4.11 12 bolt which should give me a cursing speed rpm of 1500 rpm. any thoughts?

thanks all, and 72CamaroZZ4 i love the stripes, it really sets it off, so this is what i have choose for parts, a new 12 bolt 4.11 rear end from moser engineering all read for running wilwood 4 wheel disk brakes and with posi of course, a complete kit from hurst that includes everything from flywheel to driveshaft, the trans is going to be a Tremec T56 Magnum. i am still looking for a good efi bbc kit so when i switch the lifters over to hydro i wont have to make carb adjustments all the time plus help improve the mpg since i plan on drive all over the country. any thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
