    I've found a driver quality "triple option" 73 Z28 locally. The owner has had it squirreled away for 25 years and has painted it his preference of black with a black interior, though the car was originally Light Copper Metallic with nuetral interior. The car came loaded with options from Norwood and he has a very worn copy of the window sticker showing the following:

    Adjustable Seatback, tint, floormats, side moldings, edge guards, vinyl roof, rear defogger, AC, D55 Console, Turbo 400, Tilt, HD Battery, AM/FM, rear speakers, Aux lighting, RS equipment, & of Course Z28.

    The owner says the drivetrain is original and seems to have put empasis its originality as a RS Z28, without mention of the LT model in his ad. Looks like most if not all of the Type LT trim is gone. Mileage is described as just over 50,000 miles. I haven't seen the car in person, but I know to look for the RS bracing and correct engine code.

    I've been a 1st gen guy for so long that I've never really considered 2nd gens, but this one has my interest peaked. Asking price 25K. What do you guys think? Possibly a good deal for someone who wants decent weekend cruiser in this price range with nice options? Or maybe too steep for what it is....

    If it were a 4 speed car it might be worth it.

    Interior and exterior color change will hert the value.
    How well it was done will determine how much

    Hi guys thanks for the replies. The pictures are all I have to go by at the moment. I'll have to see it in person for more as the seller is in his late 70's and just didn't include many pictures in the ad.

    yes, it may be a lot of coin, but a Type LT RS Z28 is not that common. Yes, the colour change hurts the value but IMHO, that's not as hard to rectify as trying to find the numbers matching power train parts which supposedly this one has. If the second digit in the serial # is an "S" (and from the window sticker it looks like it will) and the fifth digit has a "T" you at minimum have a Type LT Z28. IMHO, the $ issue is up to you. If it's worth it "to you" then grab it.
