1973 Spotters Guide & New Features
1973 appeared bright for the Camaro despite the previous years problems and
continued turmoil. Sales picked up slightly. While the industry was
installing battering ram style bumpers on cars in response to the federal
2.5 MPH regulation, Chevy was able to engineer the Camaros bumper, including
the Rally Sport so that it would pass.
The Super Sport model was dropped, but it was replaced with the Stylish Type
LT model. The Type LT could be ordered with RPO Z28, and if the Rally Sport
option was also ordered, you could have a Type LT/RS/Z28 Camaro.
The Z28 was still being neutered power-wise, but hey, Air Conditioning was
available for the 1st time on the Z28.
The times they're a changing, and so was the Camaro. And for 1973 you saw...
RPO Z27 (SS) dropped, replaced with Type LT.
Formerly optional steering wheel (NK4) became standard.
New impact absorbing bumpers... RS kept bumperettes, but they were stiffened
Single stick ratchetting shifter replaced stirup model.
Z28 could get air conditioning (due to non-mechanical lifters).
New wheel selections....
