What exact combination are you trying to put together? Body & interiors colors, wheels, stripes, etc...
ERTL has put out 3 of these Camaros with the standard full front bumper so if you're trying to put together a full bumper car, you'll need one of these.
Black Camaro SS with tan interior and Cragar wheels (#32515)
Black BM Camaro with black interior and Cragar wheels (#32808)
Red BM Camaro with black interior and Cragar wheels (#7129)
I have a guy that is going to try and duplicate the Z28 striping and decals but he is swamped so it could be a while. Fellow board member Matt Conte is working on producing the 3 piece high rear spoiler and front spoiler for both RS and full bumper cars. Let me know what you want the end result to look like and we'll go from there....

Well you'll definitely need 2 cars to make what you want. All the diecast dealers are selling the same ERTL cars. I'd suggest going to tommytoyz and picking up the black SS so you can use the front end off of it. He has it for $25 and you can use our group coupon code (zbm2dhzra) and get 10% off.
I'd also suggest picking up the white SS car. It has the black interior and Z28 wheels. You can then take the front end off the black SS and put it on the white SS. If you don't need the Z28 hood and deck stripes, I'd suggest getting some SS decals out of a plastic model kit. There must be tons of SS model cars.
You could probably go ahead and repaint the car while you're at it. I'm including some disassembly instructions a friend of mine gave me. They're instructions on how to change the interior out but I'm sure it will be applicable to what you're doing. I hope this helps....
Start with a clean soft towel to lay the auto on. To take the door panels off
use a thin blade knife. Slide it between the door and panel and twist it
gently moving around the panel. All the ones I have changed turn loose
pretty easy. You will keep spreading the panel apart from the door as you
go around it. Don't twist it too much in one place cause you might break it.
There are four pegs on each door that fit into the pack of the panel. I have
encountered a little glue but not very much. The chassis comes off very
easy - just remove all the screws keeping them separated cause some are
different. Once the screws have been removed, open both doors and
(gently) pop the steering column down from its position in the dash.
The chassis is now ready to be separated from the body. Sometimes
the interior is attached to the chassis but it can be separated easily with
a knife. Just stick the knife between the two and twist them apart.
There are two screws holding the hood hinge to the body -remove
them, the support, the hood and lay it aside clear from the work
area. The dash is held in place with brads. I took a drill and drilled the
head off the brad just enough to separate the dash from the body. The
windows are held in place by pins of sort. They will need to be drilled
out. The windows can be glued back in later. Do the same with the
other auto and then switch the parts. I put a small bit of super glue
on the pins holding the dash in position for a little extra strength. They
make a "quick setting" solution for super glue. Be sure to get some
of it because the glue will emit fumes that will "fog" plastic and
doesn't look too good on clear plastic. The door panels should (normally)
snap into place. I have uses a little glue on them before - but just a
"touch" and don't worry about the fumes here. The interior will fit right
into the body and then replace the chassis. You might have to "wiggle" it a
little but it will fall back into place. Watch the steering wheel to make
sure it is not sticking "under" the dash. Once you have all the screws back
in their proper place "gently" snap the steering column back into position
in the dash.
