1973 Chevrolet Camaro Is a Barn Find Leaving Too Many Questions With No Answer

1973 was a pretty important year for the Camaro, as Chevrolet introduced a series of changes that were received with mixed feelings by customers across the States.

One of the most notable, for instance, was the demise of the SuperSport, with the GM brand betting big on the newly-launched Type LT available with the L65 engine and several exclusive options.

In terms of engines, the 250 was the only six-cylinder unit that could be fitted on the ’73 Camaro, and given it produced just 100 horsepower, it goes without saying it wasn’t the most popular choice anyway. Only a little over 3,600 Camaros were ordered with this engine.

The 307 was the base V8, while the optional units included the L65, the L48, and the Z28. All came in the form of 350 (5.7-liter) units with different power outputs, namely 145, 175, and 245 horsepower, respectively. The L65 was the standard choice on the LT, while the Z28 4-barrel was obviously exclusive to the Camaro Z28.

The 1974 Camaro that someone has discovered in long-term storage looks like a car that deserves to get back on the road, though it leaves way too many questions without an answer.

For instance, while it was born with a V8 under the hood, the car is no longer a matching-numbers model. The engine is no longer running, and eBay seller rdz_garage doesn’t provide too many specifics on it either.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell just how much of this Camaro continues to be original, and its overall shape is a big mystery anyway. We do know there’s some rust in the usual places, but that’s pretty much it.

At first glance, this Camaro could end up becoming quite an intriguing project, but an in-person inspection is almost mandatory given the lack of information. The car isn’t necessarily affordable, as the owner isn’t willing to let it go for less than $8,500.
