1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

Many overlook the second-generation Camaro Z28. For a few short years in the early ’70s, however, Z/28s still offered serious performance.
The 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was no pretender. The Z/28 package still came with heavy duty suspension and positraction axle, and under the hood was a 360 hp version of the solid lifter, high-compression LT1 engine out of the Corvette.

Of the 1970–73 Camaro Z/28s, the ’70 is the most desirable because with each subsequent year, a little more performance got choked out of the Camaro as muscle cars fizzled out. In 1973, 11,500 Z/28 were built.
A manual four-speed and the Rally Sport (RS) package will attract more interest.According to Hagerty the average value of a condition #2 (Excellent) 1970 car currently sits around $53k, and prices fall year by year until the 1973 model, which currently sits at $34,900 for a #2 car. Desirable options demand more.
