Could you guys give me your thoughts. I am building a 2nd Gen Camaro. I am using a 427, But plan to restore the rest of the car back to original. I have two cars I could use for this restoration. A 1970 SS/RS 350 car or a 1973 LT Z28/RS. Since neither car will have the original drive train, What one should I restore? Also do you know if 70-73 had space saver spare tires? Thanks for your time.Steve

the SS will probably have a little more value, but there is absolutely no sense in restoring a car to stock that has a non original drivetrain, unless you want a stock looking car. the big block will add more desirability to a car than the badging.

I would think a restored 70SS with a different drive train would be worth more than the same for 73Z.
A full size spare was standard in 70.

From a financial perspective ask yourself the following questions. Do I intend on keeping this car? Secondly, which car is in better condition to begin with. Remember, you will never fully recover your costs of building or restoring unless we're talking Hemi 'Cuda or something equally prestigious.

Good luck
