73 LT

My first car was a 73 LT. I loved that car and had it about 4 years before selling it, I sold it around 1982 and haven't had a car that I loved until I brought my 2010 SS. I started thinking about my old Camaro and looking at pictures of guys cars on this site. I was wonder what options came with the Camaro in 73? I had a 3 piece spoiler in the back and one under the front. I had a 350 with the aluminum valve covers with the open air cleaner with the chrome top. The car also had the gray colored rims but they were in a box and the guy I brought the car from had SS cragar's on it. The car also had a posi rear. I'm thinking the guy ordered the LT and ordered the Z/28 engine with the spoilers?

If it was a Z28 it should have Z28 badging on the front fenders, grill and rear spoiler. LT badging would be on the sail panel. It sure sounds like a Z28, did you look at the cowl tag?

It was probably a z28. Thats were the grey wheels come from, along with the valve covers and the chromed air cleaner and the spoilers. Either that or someone tried really hard to clone a z28. Sounds like a nice car. We have a 73 LT with no z28 or anything. Fun car.

Your car was what got me wondering about my old 73. Mine did have the LT badging but had those options like the Z28. Wonder if the guy I got it from order the LT with those options? Not sure when he just won't have order the Z/28 package instead.

I just googled the 73 Camaro and found out you could combine the Z/28 option with the LT model. I guess thats what I had. Guess who knew?

Do you remember any z28 badges on the car? If thats what you had, then you had a pretty rare 73. Any pics of it?

It sounds like someone just added all the extra parts. It's very easy to do. We have been thinking about adding a low spoiler to our car( with a different trunk lid though). That is my guess but I could be wrong
