your car seems to be the same paint (74 dark red metallic with a white vinyl roof) and interior ( 779 standard vinyl neutral) as my car . i still have the original interior and a repaint of the original color . what does your car look like now ? does it still retain the original interior and paint color ?

That's NOT your VIN, that's off the Trim Tag. Your VIN is on the top of the dashboard, drivers side, visible thru the windshield from outside.

On the dash of your car the VIN should read 1Q87F3N1xxxxx

Thats 1=Chevrolet
Q=base model Camaro
87=2door sports coupe(All 73 Camaros were)
F=307engine
3=1973
N=assembled at Norwood Ohio(all 73 amaros and Firebirds were)
1xxxxx= the number that your car was built off the assembly line.
