    Is there any way to tell on a 1973 Z28 if it also had the LT option the fifth digit of the Vin.# T
    The Trim tag Reads
    TR 773 A51 75 75 PNT
    05D Z28
    590077

    When I look at the Camaro white book it has the 773 interior under the LT list.
    Thanks
    Dave

    Second digit of the VIN should be as “S” for an LT.

    The “T” tells you it’s a 350.

    it wouldn't tell you if its an RS or not but it is a model Type LT with the Z28 option . the T is for the " special performance engine Z28 " . there were 3 different 350 ci engines available with different designations

    Thanks for the reply's it does have the RS front end, I bought this project as a roller with no interior and missing the instrument cluster I new the T in the Vin. designated Z28 but when I looked up the interior code 773 it said type LT i just didn't know how to prove it. Thank again everyone.

    There are a lot of tell tell signs if it is a true 73 RS. Throw some pictures up of the core support.
