here is another interesting photo

I have seen special paint orange 1968 Camaros with orange rally wheels but I never saw a 1967

don't know if this is original paint but the car looks new

looks like an SS RS 396

found this  photo

The Chevy Show truck semi trailer can be seen in the back

 I think it's from Canada because I looked up "cine sphere 3" and says .....

"It's Expo 1967 in Montreal Canada and multi-screen film presentations are the rage of the renowned international fair.  Canadian entrepreneurs and filmmakers Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, and Robert Kerr actually produced some of the films being shown, but made a decision to create a single projector/screen motion picture system which would equal or surpass the grandeur of the cumbersome multi-camera systems.  IMAX® corporation was born."

 I also assume you mean no rubber, flat washer spring clip.

no, I do mean spring washer not a spring clip

the 1969 assembly drawing shows the trans levers with no rubber used  a spring washer, a flat washer , and a cotter pin
the shifter levers with rubber used a flat washer , and a cotter pin

I don't know if has been proven but some say the first production cowl hoods were on the ZL1 Camaros

Chevy promised Fred Gibb and Dick Harrell they would get one by the end of the year and it arrived on Dec 31 , 1968

The number one ZL1 had its cowl hood changed to a fiberglass hood 

this road test article of the two ZL1s , shows number one and said the other ZL 1 is number 5 and it had 25 miles on it when picked up to drive it to the drag strip   
both were dusk blue

I have not seen different length small block rods
big blocks rods are different length
was yours cut off or ground down on the end?

the Hurst spring clip was out well before 1969

The spring clip should not be used with a rubber bushing

the rubber bushing used a flat washer

the levers with no rubber used a flat washer and a spring washer

see the assembly view in the CRG Shifter report here

I don't have the car , just have the shifter
it is a June 1969 date code
it looks all original and complete
it does not have the rubber on the levers
even has the original alloy ball

don't forget that you can adjust the shifter forward or back because the lower shifter bolt on the mount plate is in a slot.
that will make your rod adjustment longer or shorter

if you have a console , you may not have much room to adjust it

the Rev lever in my picture measures 3 3/16 in long

also interesting that many original Rev levers I have seen are black oxide and forward levers are silver cad plated
