    Hopefully, it can be saved. If not, her parts could live on in another car.
    Either way, glad to see her being rescued after so many years of neglect.
    Good for you and best of luck. :bowtie:

    Awesome. I have one of those also. Type LT Z28s I didn’t believe had any Z28 badging though. Great find

    It is definitely worth the money. Drag it home, clean it up and see what you have there. There are no statistics to tell us how many Camaros had Z28, LT, and RS together, but that doesn't matter. As already stated, once LT was added to a Z28, you lost the Z28 badges and got only the LT badges. Maybe it isn't a LT, but instead a Z28, RS. In my opinion, that is even better as the LT option adds nothing of value to a performance car. The Z28 option is the value in the car. If you are lucky enough to get the original drive train, that is where the value is. The Z28 engine (L82) and the tranny are the cream of the car.
    The '73 isn't a better handling car than the 70-72. They all had the same suspension parts. The seller just wants to sell it. Actually, the best handling Second Gen Camaros are the 77-81 Z28s as they got larger sway bars.

    The rs front end alone is worth more that 700

    Interesting to see what happened with this car. I have a '73 Z28/LT/RS... it doesn't look like from the pics under the hood that it has the second braces from the radiator support to the inner fenders for the RS option... and a TypeLT will have wood grain inserts on the doors and the dash and a weave pattern on the seats, plus an 'LT' in the horn button. The LT over-rode the Z28 badging so it just says TypeLT on the sail panels, the grill and the rear taillight panel, and Camaro and 350 on the fenders... but a lot of people had the Z28 emblems added after the fact, along with the rally stripes...

    The VIN will tell you quickly if its an LT/Z28, the second character would be an S and fifth character would be a T. If it's not a T, it's not a Z. Also the RS radiator support will have places for both the short and long fender to core support braces to bolt on to, 2 on each side of the radiator. If it's a real Rally Sport, that core support is probably worth more than what he paid for the whole car. Love to know how this plays out. I've got a real LT/RS/Z-28... :bowtie:
