For Sale: 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 in Cobb, Wisconsin


Vehicle Description

For the first time ever, I'm offering for sale my original one owner Z-28.

A real survivor, an unrestored, original paint, original numbers matching T code 1973 Camaro Z-28, 350, 4 speed with 29,200 original miles on the odometer. I ordered this car new from a local dealer when I was a senior in high school.

Silver with black stripes, black interior, bucket seats, console, power steering, power brakes. I have the original AM/8 track radio as well. Brand new BF Goodrich T/A's on the original factory mags. I still have the original Firestone Wide Oval spare tire mounted on the factory mag, which has been stored in the house for the last 40+ years.

I have the original paperwork dated 2-7-73 from the dealership giving me the purchase quote, and then the original purchase contract dated two days later, on 2-9-73, for the sales agreement when I ordered the vehicle. I have the original paid in full dealer receipt dated 4-7-73 when I picked up the car. I also have the factory GM engine, transmission, and rear axle inspection paper. And lastly, I have the original window sticker, and owners manual and pertinent related material.

As far as I know, the factory build sheet(s) is still hidden somewhere in/on the vehicle, and surprisingly, have yet to look for it.

All in all, enough legitimate paper work to prove the provenance of the vehicle from day one.

I have it insured through Grundy Collector Car Insurance for a stated value of $42,500, and am offering it for sale here for $38,995.00.


I just got the car back from a complete motor re-build, meticulously executed by Bob Siegwarth at Iowa Speed & Supply out of Otter Creek, Ia. His attention to detail and professionalism is second to none......I'm impressed and can highly recommend him without reservation.

The motor was built to be basically an "upgraded" period correct version with new hardened seats for unleaded gas, stainless valves, 8.7-1 compression, stock intake, re-built Quadrajet carb, and original exhaust manifolds, but we did switch out the cam for a Comp Cam and the electronic ignition conversion. A new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing were installed, and the flywheel resurfaced.

The motor was broke in and tuned on the dyno before being re-installed in the car.

Max HP is 294, and max torque is 340. It's hard to call it a torque curve, as it's more of a flat line. With the 3.73 gears, the car's running 3000 RPM's at 60 MPH, so the meat of the torque is right where it needs to be at cruzin' speed. A copy of the dyno printout is posted.
