1973 Chevrolet Camaro

General Overview

GM no longer offered the SS option on the Camaro, although the RS and Z/28 options were still available.

They included revised front bumperettes, which met the new Federal Safety regulations. A new Type LT option was added as a luxury package and included a V8 (L65) and several trim items. Despite all the drops in performance, production was up!

Other notable features: the Z/28 now had an A/C option, and all Camaros had a power window option.

The RS was an upgraded trim option and could be added to any Camaro, including the new Type LT.

The Z/28 came standard with a 350ci, 245 hp V8.

The Type LT was the luxury option and included wood grain trim, improved insulation, and additional lights in the glove compartments and on the instrument panel. It came standard with 165hp and special LT emblems on the inside and out.
