73 Camaro 12 bolt rear end????

Found a guy selling a 12 Bolt Chevrolet rear end from a 1973 Camaro for $250
I did a little research and believe the only 12 bolt rear ends to fit 1970-1980 Camaro were in the 1970 Camaro only and are very rare, can anyone confirm this for me???

I doubt it..........
GM still had Z/28's in 71 and 72 ..........and while they were less muscular than the 70...they still ran decent....

BUT no proof either way...from me...

Don't walk, RUN to buy that 12 bolt. Just make sure it is a car 12 bolt not a truck 12 bolt. The car 12 bolt is worth 3 times the amount he's asking just for the housing. If it's a truck rear end it's not worth the trouble of dragging it home.

Without looking it up I would guess the last year for a 12 bolt in a Camaro was 70 (possibly 72 or 73) in either case it is a great find.
