About “Black Betty”
In 1973 the Type LT replaced the SS option and added many new options to the Camaro line, such as factory A/C for the first time and power windows for the first time in the second gen production line. I've owned this for a few years and done some myself, with friends and paid for the rest. I try to maintain a stock look, and do a few shows from time to time. In the coming summer I will run it down the track a time or two and get my 0-60, and 1/4 mile times.
If you can provide documentation on how many LT Z28 RS optioned Camaros were produced in '73 I would like to hear from you.
About “The "Z"”
This is a one owner car until the fall of 2009 where it has come out of 8 years of California storage and 40 years of limited use. It was always stored indoors and shows it.
The paint is the original colour but had a cosmetic paint freshening about 10 years ago and other than routine maintenance items is the way it was built. The car will stay stock inspite of my passion for V8 240z's because these very early series 1 cars are now becoming rare and collectable.

Factory Options for “The "Z"”
This is a California spec car meaning they all seemed to get the dealer aluminum slots and this one also got air conditioning which still works fine. There were virtually no options on these cars that were not installed at a dealer level.
“The "Z"” has no photo albums.
