AC was not a Camaro option till '73, solid lifters prohibited AC. '73 was the first year for hydraulic lifters and AC. So immediately I'm suspicious of this car. I speak as a '73 RS Z-28 owner.

What? No AC tell '73? Better do some research.

Yes, in the Z-28. But I reread the post, it's not a Z. My mistake.

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 up. Single stick ratchetting shifter replaced stirup model. Z28 could get air conditioning (due to non-mechanical lifters). New wheel selections.... Z87 Custom interior dropped Perforated headliner replaces Cut & Sew style in mid-year Space-saver tire debut Redesigned console Power windows debute full foam rear seats with one piece backrest. Powerglide 2 speed automatic trans dropped EGR for all engines & coolant-recovery Warning buzzer/fasten seat belts debut Tail-light housing switched from black to white plastic

Yes, and air was also available in 67, just not on Z28's. Hydraulic lifters were standard on all Chevrolet passenger car motors from the very beginning in 1955. However solid lifters were commonly used on factory hi po motors such as the 302 and the original LT1. The first year for air conditioning on a Z28 was some time in the mid seventies when it returned as a lo performance sticker package. - Gary

No, you didn't say much of anything. Next time try putting a little further explanation into your reply, so people like me won't have to use our crystal balls as often.
