The 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 tribute is an mean looking bad boy. So when you hear the roar of the improved little block, you’ll be all smiles.
This is a nice spot for some Camaro fans. The first few years of the second generation cars carried clear lines and a sleek side profile. This kind of mean design deserves that deep black paint and power dome hood. Plus the classic double racing stripes are painted in the signature silver colour. This has all the best details, like the Z/28 badge, the rear spoiler, the shape-fitting rear bumper and the RS front fascia. An upgrade to racing wheels on this Weld style gives this Weld a nice pause while still fitting the classic stance.
The black interior keeps the dark and frightening attitude going. This is designed to be a driver’s machine, so you have high-back front bucket seats, an NK4 sport steering wheel, and additional readouts added on the center console. And since this is all about performance, you can also see that it’s a proper classic. The air conditioning controls are still in place (you will need components and services to restore functionality). The seats feature a classic foldable design. And the dome light still greets you when you open the door.
Under the hood is a bright, uncluttered 350 cubic inch V8 that seems to radiate power from the dark engine compartment. That’s because this was upgraded with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-cylinder carburetor. There are also nice supporting components like the HEI diffuser and the aluminum cooler. Additionally, the heads add more power and noise as they feed dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There’s also a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, electric brakes, front discs, and rear towbars for a solid all-round driver.
There are pieces you might want to update/upgrade, such as a modern set of frames, nice details to upgrade the paint, or the addition of a modern stereo. But overall, this coupe has the style, attitude, power and ruggedness you really want in the medium and acclaim of the Z/28 and RS.
