Craigslist Find: Big Wheeled 1973 Camaro Z28

73 Camaro Z28 sunsetInside of the Inland Empire of California, this 1973 Camaro Z28 split bumper has been listed for sale. This is the model as a David Freiburger F-bomb Camaro, though this 73 Z28 has been restored in resto-mod fashion instead of a drag car.

Our favorite thing about this car is it’s metallic black paint job. It’s clear that a lot of time and effort was spent on the paint. It makes the Camaro look brand new and looks amazing in the California sunset.

Its superb interior houses four black leather bucket seats, the original working dash, an extra set of mechanical gauges and a CD player to blast Fu Manchu while you cruise.

Its power plant is a mild Chevy 350 crate engine mated to a 700R4 transmission. The 350 is fired to life by an MSD Street Fire ignition and has a couple of nice goodies including an Edelbrock 4 bbl carbuertor, intake manifold and a mild street cam. Flowmaster long tube headers are mated to the engine which are connected to a Flowmaster dual exhaust system.

The rear of the car has been lowered slightly by using Detroit Speed lowering leaf springs. The front of the Camaro has been given a further 2 inch drop leaving the car at an angled stance. While the car handles great, musclecar purists may not be fans of the 20 inch chrome VIP modular rims.

The sleek lines, lowered stance and metallic paint job are what make this Camaro great. However, big rims on classic musclecars has become a controversial topic in recent years. Some rodders embrace and others hate more than imports. Do you believe large wheels belong on muscle cars?
