Hi Everyone! I am new to the site because I just got interested in the 70-73 Camaros. I started looking for a project car recently and was told about a 73 split bumper car. I followed the guys directions to look for this car that’s 16 miles from my house. I was able to find the car and get in contact with the owner during that first visit. He wants to sell the car and told me it’s been siting in its current location for 13 years , and had been sitting at the previous location for 19 years and was sitting for 5 years at original owners home in Indiana. ( 37 years Total sitting . ) A guy from my area purchased the car from Indiana and brought the car to my state where it just sat until the current owner purchased it from second owner. The current owner fixed the engine and drove it for a number of years until he parked it where it’s been sitting because he said the rear frame rail on pass side was rusting out and the pass rocker panel had a huge hole in bottom of it. I’m assuming the salt used on the roads in Indiana probably rusted the bottom of the car. The owner wanted 1,000 for it as sits but I have got him to 700.00 and going to take a chance that the car can be saved or parted out to be used on a restoration at worst. I could not see the cowl tag because the hood hinges are rusted and we can’t open the hood very far. I was able to decode the vin number and it came back as being a type LT Rs and z/28 optioned car. I can not find much info on 1973 cars with all three options. I found one car on you tube the the guy said was special ordered with all three options and he called it a holy grail second gen because 73 was best handling year and not many people ordered all three options so he said it was rare. I wanted to see if anyone could tell me if the car is indeed a rare car and worth the money I would have to put into the car to restorer . The car also has a rear defrost unit recessed into the rear speaker deck between the speakers that blows air onto the back glass. I looked into the trunk it has a fan motor and cage with a heating element that heats the air blown onto back window. I have never seen one on a car is it a rare option also? I have to make a decision on the car soon so I wanted to know if the car was collectible or if it was a car worth saving.
