I don't remember a LT Camaro, I thought they came later, unless you're speaking of the engine package. Split bumper Camaros were Rally Sports, they also came in combos with the Z28. my favorite Camaro ever built. Buy it. A car with history, unless it is entirely thrashed or expensive, will be a good investment.

A couple of.websites say they were built. They were lt/z28 camaros. It isn't a numbers matching car but wouldn't take much to make it one though.

One of my most favorite cars, if it is any kind of deal buy it, it will always be a wanted car, plus split bumper, nice. So many ways to build one.

the 70 1/2 camaro s a very rare care. ts not and ss or rs nor a rs. if i was you i would bye it. i have the privalge to own one of these cars myself and there very fun project cars. there were only 1000 of these cars made and less than 150 of them can be found to day. most have been changed into drag or drt track cars but if you can find one that can restored it can bring a lot of money

If you want facts and figures might I suggest you sign up over at the Team Camaro website? http://www.camaros.net/forums/

Good bunch of folks over there and they live and breathe F-bodies.

I am one of those Camaro guys. LT Camaro did not come out until 1973, I had not noticed the year of car he was talking about. IF OP means an LT-1 engine in a 1971 Camaro, that car existed.

The first thing I thought was that he meant an LT-1. I think the 70 Z-28 was the first car the factory used it in.
