1973 brought more loss in horsepower and the beginning of the move
of the Camaro away from a performance car and more toward a luxury
car. The Camaro lost one performance option (SS), and gained an
appearance option (Type LT)

Like 1972, all Camaros were produced at the Norwood plant.

Increasingly stringent bumper standards forced the addition of
bumper guards on non RS cars, and the addition of additional
bracing and internal structure inside the RS nose.

The Z28 lost its solid lifter cam, Holley carb., and aluminum
intake. This was the second year of the foil Z28 emblem on the 
rear spoiler which replaced the metal unit.  It appears that the 
1973 Z28 rear bumper did not get the mini chrome bumper guards 
as did 1970-1972.  

The interior center console design changed; this design was 
used for the remainder of the second generation.
