This 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 tribute is a split-bumper bad boy
with a mean appearance. So when you hear the growl of the enhanced
small block, you'll be all smiles.
This is a sweet spot for some Camaro lovers. The first few years of
the 2nd generation cars carried crisp lines and a sleek fastback
profile. This kind of mean styling deserves this deep black paint
and a power dome cowl hood. Plus the classic dual racing stripes
are painted on in a distinct silver. And this has all the best
details, like the Z/28 badging, ducktail rear spoiler, form-fitting
rear bumper, and the iconic split bumper RS front end. And the
upgrade to Weld-style racing wheels gives this a nice stance while
still fitting the classic attitude.
The black interior keeps the dark and intimidating attitude going.
This is built to be a driver's machine, and so you have high-back
front bucket seats, an NK4 sports steering wheel, and added
auxiliary readouts on the center console. And as performance-minded
as this is, you also can see it's a proper classic. The controls
for air conditioning are still in place (it will need components
and servicing to restore the function.) The seats have a classic
pleated design. And the dome light even still greets you when the

like it's radiating with power from within the dark engine bay.
That's because this is upgraded with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock
intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. There
are also nice supporting components like an HEI distributor and an
aluminum radiator. Plus, headers add extra power and rumble as they
feed the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There's also a
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
front discs, and rear traction bars for an all-around solid
There are pieces you may want to update/upgrade, like a modern set
of tires, a nice detail to upgrade the paint, or add a modern
stereo. But overall, this coupe has the style, stance, power, and
rumble you really want in a means and iconic Z/28 and RS tribute.
