    The horn actuator on the 70 looks to be unique . Can anyone confirm? 70 horn detail.jpg

    My 01A built Z had a separate piece of carpet between back seats dated September of 69, instead of the vinyl piece

    Now that's interesting. Never heard that before. So early of a car maybe the vinyl piece wasn't ready yet. Any pictures of the date on the piece?

    Yep, all 70's were like this. 70 only.

    Anything steering wheel related is special to 70.

    Have you owned it since new? Maybe a previous owner placed it. Or maybe they weren't available from GM for the 01A cars.

    Having been questioned at many car show about the carpet, I took it out and put in the vinyl piece. I will have to look for it to take a picture. I recall not only did it have a September '69 date, but also a part number on a small tag that was stapled to the back side. My headrests, seatbelts, horns, mechanical parts, etc. all have '69 date codes. According to the numbers, my Camaro was built the second shift of the first day of production. I was invited to attend the Norwood, Ohio reunion show in 2013. The night before the display, there was a question and answer session. I asked about the carpet, and none of the retired worker remembered the carpet, but there was a GM executive there who told me his father had a dealership back then, and he recalled the early Camaros had the carpet. He didn't know when they started to use the vinyl.
