Vehicle Original VIN : 1Q87T3N149714
This real-deal 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS is exceptionally original from the distinct color package to the numbers-matching V8 under the hood. In fact, this is a two-owner car that was sold new as a brass hat in 1974, which is amazing for a coupe approaching its half-century birthday. So if you love one of the best performance cars of the era, this is a unique chance at a true time capsule.
It’s not just that the Midnight Blue paint is factory-correct, we’re told it’s factory original. You will find imperfections in the finish, but it’s more about showing off nearly 50 years of history. The way the finish still has a nice metallic glow that shows off the well-fitting panels is the way this one really showcases its decades of respect and care. More than just preserved, this is a terrific Z/28 with the best features like a deep chin spoiler, Z/28 mags, correct badging, bright dual exhaust tips, and a three-piece rear spoiler. It’s great to have such a well-preserved example because 1973 was an important year. It was the last time we were given the split-bumper RS front end. And since this car is so original, it’s believed to be a true Rally Sport.
The interior is the perfect representation for a preserved car like this. After all, there’s just comping pure retro-cool about the houndstooth-style blue inserts in the upholstery that coordinate with the blue exterior. This factory-correct setup is one we rarely see today, and so it’s great to have it so complete, right down to the button tops of the seatbacks. It’s believed the odometer reflects the car’s actual mileage and it has the look and feel of a low mileage survivor with an excellent presentation throughout. You’ll even appreciate the little details like the working AM radio and the dome light that still greets you when you open the door. And more than just preserved, you’re going to love how this Camaro engages the driver with the feeling of high-back front bucket seats, an armrest center console in-between, an NK4 sports steering wheel, and a wraparound gauge panel.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8, and that’s always awesome to have on a real-deal Z/28. It has a nice stock appearance from the decals to the correct Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. You can tell from the presentation that they preserved the right places, but details like the hoses and belts also prove this has seen the correct maintenance, too. So it’s a strong-running true classic. And the solid power package makes for a terrific total cruiser. After all, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the numbers-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission make this a great anytime driver.
We bet you never thought a survivor of this kind of stature was still out there. Long-term ownership, low mileage, and very original make for the perfect collector Z/28. So this is a fleeting opportunity at something quite special. Call today!
