    Absolutely, probably why they are so hard to find . I mean I have no build sheet but I would consider my car a rally sport through a preponderance of the evidence . My passenger side fender has been replaced but that’s the way I got it 20 years ago ( side of the road in front of Home Depot for 8 grand ) . Sure wear and tear stuff has been replaced over the years but only on its second paint job . Very difficult to prove a 73 Camaro with the rally sport option as the scarcity of build sheets . Did you get a set of wipers with it ?

    Excellent points as usual here.

    Another "piece of the puzzle" are concealed wipers and the rear hood "center cowl support post".
    Should that post be on all cars with concealed wipers?
    When did concealed wipers become standard?

    Z21 Style Trim was no longer included with Z22 Rally Sport in 1973 correct?

    Concealed wipers were the only other option that was forced on the 73 RS . The concealed wipers on the articulating side had 3 anchor bolts on the cowl . Standard wipers had 2 . The center post was part of the concealed wiper option .

    1977 was the year C24 ( hidden wipers ) became standard

    Here's a picture that I have with me of the cowl, I'm thinking its not a original RS and what is the difference between the hide away wipers and the none, IMG_8255.JPG IMG_8254.JPG

    In '73 the type LT option also forced the hidden wipers.

    Right, my point was if it is an LT, then asking about concealed wipers doesn't add any info to determine if it is an RS or not.
