    That is not correct. You could get a Z28 with AC the LT package had zero to do with it. Also the only 4 speeds for Z28 is a M20 or M21.

    This is Rick's correctly badged LT/RS/Z28.

    I always liked the placement of the Type LT emblems on the tail panel, C pillars, and header panel on the standard front end. Just a nice touch. :cool:

    Thanks for posting that! Learn something every day on here. I looked for a good while to find two good grille pieces for mine, and that was years ago.

    Ain't that the truth! Most recently I was schooled about wiper linkages and a few months ago, 70-71 armrest brackets vs. 72 and up. Always something to learn here. I just couldn't imagine trying to restore these cars in the days before Nasty. Assembly manuals and books only go so far. :bowtie:

    EDIT: Also learned about the LH side mirror having a backing plate. Before that, I had only seen the RH backing plate. I learn more from this site than at my job, lol.

    My 73 is a Z28 with factory AC. Not a Type LT, although I "upgraded" my standard interior from one. :D

    You say this is a 73? GM did away with the split bumper mid year 72 to meet the new Federal Safety Bumper Standards.

    Welcome to Nasty! :bowtie:

    That's not correct. You could still order an RS in 73. It just had extra bracing, to put it simply.

    You can see a pic of the RS on the dealer's brochure.

    It used a Urethane Nose if I am not mistaken as a "Bumper" with the Split bumper. 1974 had the sloped full bumper
