For Sale: 1973 Chevrolet Camaro in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This is a 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS LT coupe with its numbers-matching V8 and four-on-the-floor. While that already makes it quite attractive, the true irresistibility is in all the extras. The upgraded aggressive style, correct RS presentation, power upgrades, and cold-blowing A/C make it the one to have.

The cowl tag says this car is wearing its correct Dark Red metallic, and that's the kind of color you want on an aggressive coupe. The paint was given a quality respray a few years back, and as you can see from the pictures, it still knows how to shine. The result is an ideal mix of a sharp-looking coupe that you won't hesitate to drive to any weekend event. More than just the color, the allure in this one is about its total package. The lines are clean, the gaps are pretty uniform, the glass is good, the weather stripping is pliable, and the chrome is bright. The iconic RS split-bumper creates an intimidating front end that looks like it will inhale the traffic ahead. This one shows signs of coming from the factory that way (currently, there's no buildsheet for definitive proof, but the correct parts are there, including the correct 1973-only bumper reinforcement bars and correct urethane nose cone, which maintains the factory hood latch location, unlike reproduction units.) And that big blackout grille goes nicely with the upgraded black racing stripes painted on top. The aggression continues with an L88 fiberglass hood, hood pins, chin spoiler, and three-piece rear spoiler. It's a true muscle car style, right down to the proper Z/28 mag wheels with a dark gray finish and raised white-letter tires.

The factory-correct tan interior is a terrific standout color against the dark tones of the exterior. The LT package goes for an upper-class luxurious look with plenty of wood trim on door panels and dash. This is a detailed vintage package, right down to the button-top seatbacks and working dome light. Your overall impression will be about a driver-quality presentation, which we often like on such a driver-ready car. Upgrades like an AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and recent investments in the cold-blowing R134a air conditioning make for a nice driver. Plus, the interior feels like it was built just for you. There are nice factory pieces like front bucket seats, the grippy NK4 sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and factory gauges with tach. This is joined by the upgraded Hurst shifter and an oil pressure gauge mounted under the dash.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch motor. The bold block, correct decals, ribbed valve covers, and overall tidy look give a terrific presentation. And as you dig deeper, the newer plugs, wires, battery, and exhaust manifold gaskets reinforce the feeling of a well-maintained classic. This V8 was the top-dog powerhouse in 1973, and it continues that powerful tradition with upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Holley intake, and long tube headers. It fires up eagerly and makes a nice sound out of the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. Best of all, you have complete control over the V8 and its growl thanks to the numbers-matching Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. This coupe also has all the right driving features, such as power steering, power brakes, front discs, rear traction bars, and newer Cooper Cobra tires.

The sale comes with a warranty card, maintenance records, and restoration photos. This is the second-gen Camaro with the Z/28 RS packaging we all want. So when something this authentic is up for grabs, it's time to take notice. Call now!
