    No trim tag was stamped z22 for the rs option in 1970 through 1973. No rs was not a forced option on a z28. There are plenty of non rs z28's in 1970 through 1973.

    My math says there were 18,175 camaros built in 1973 that did NOT have the D55 console option. Those that are more expert on this will likely know if there were particular package options that included the console that's not represented by the numbers of D55 optioned cars built. And again how many z28's in particular did not have the console would be impossible to determine.

    I got 17,135 without the D55 option. In 1973 they only produced 11,574 Z-28’s, 5467 or them were automatics.
    I wish I knew how many of them were column shift???

    If one out of 6 Camaros built in 73 got the RS package then your car with any shifter is around 1000. The numbers drop significantly when the shifter was on the column. It is anyone's guess so just make up a number to impress your friends.

    never saw a Z28 with column shift, I know gauge package (tach, etc.) was an option. Bought my 1973 Z-28 new with four speed without gauge package

    Where does this info come from? I see more and more crazy stuff when it comes to decoding these cars. A "forced" RS package? Really?

    Not exactly...The data here shows 11,574 Z28s, 4,494 were M21 4 Speeds which indicates over 7,000 of them were automatics. Out of the 11,364 RS camaros how many were autos...is a mystery? I wouldn't think a column shift would be super rare out of the nearly 80K auto cars. However with the 7,000 auto Z28s...I don't think the numbers are super low, but not staggering. I also see it as simply unique...not more "valuable" or "collectible". JMO.
