I agree T-model66..  appears to be an extremely well-preserved original car, which is also very *rare*.. YES,,  Camaros with bench seats are rare... 
a bench seat in any of the pony cars are rare; I didn't even know a bench seat was an option in those cars until long after they were new.. and I've only seen a handful in my lifetime since. 
Note:  I assisted a good friend with restoration of a '70 AAR Cuda, with bench seat and column shift Auto ..  How rare do you reckon that is?  :)

My mountain green '67 has black custom interior with bench seat. I know of a white coupe with gold custom interior with bench also. Not many around.

They (bench AARs) are rare but I have seen a few, of course I frequent places where you would see them. I'll try to dig up a number, Chrysler didn't keep good record of options just percentages, 15% of Cudas were Sassy Grass Green (example, not accurate) but not necessarily 15% of AARs were that color. I show a bench seat column shift Mustang recently in PA and I actually saw a newer bench seat column shift Avalon come into the dealership the other day for service, this (the Avalon) is a case where rare doesn't equal valuable.

Not to hi-jack but to post info, the TA/AAR guru chimed in on a post with the question on moparts, 154 column shift AARs are known/documented and 85 of them are bench seats. Other than that it is just percentages as mentioned earlier.
