My 69 Impala survivor has a 6" j bolt with a perfect wing nut, no rust, nice and shiny and my Z has a set up just like rszmjt's. I think the difference between the 2 vehicles is the angle of the  trunk floor where the wheel and tire lays and the placement of the welded loop. There is a lot of space under the rim in the Camaro and in the Impala the rim sits pretty flat. The longer one definitely wouldn't work for the Impala.

 Here is mine from the 04B '67 coup for a 14" tire. Looks like Eldon's posted in reply #2.
Not sure if it was used in '69 or not but it can answer where Eldon's was used.
