    I know hood insulation was part of the Z87 Deluxe Interior option, but could a 1970 Camaro be ordered with hood insulation any other way, i.e could a car with standard interior somehow come with an insulated hood? Was there a separate, standalone option for this? Thanks!

    Hood insulation was not available separately. It was included as you mentioned with Z87 deluxe interior. It was also included in Z27 Super Sport.
    So, all SS cars had it no matter what interior they were ordered with.

    Gary: Has it ever been established that the 70 Z28 came with one also?
    This was covered in an old thread before and don't remember what the outcome was. Do you remember this?? Thanks-Larry

    I don't remember the outcome of that thread either. The hood insulation is not listed in the 1970 Z28 option. It is listed on the SS option.
    So, I can't say if the Z28 got the insulation too.

    I have factory literature that list hood insulation with Z-28. I have posted pictures here before.

    My 1100 mile 70 Z28 with standard interior had hood insulation.

    Thanks to everyone who answered my inquiry. I really do appreciate it!

    CamarosRus, I'll contact you on ordering the insulation set with metal clips.

    And I've got about 25 or 26 round plastic clips too. Hated to throw them out figuring someday someone might want originals.
