I thought William broke down how many were left after the Z/10, and Z/11. Which was like 5300 roughly, to divide up between SS and Z/28.

Hard to pin down how many Z10s in the mix; estimated to be 350-450. There were 10,026 ZL2 hoods; subtract 3,675 Z11s and 400 Z10s leaves 5,951 hoods to divide up between Z/28s and the remainder of SS production. There were more SS built than Z/28s so it is likely SS installation was higher.

Of the remainder, guessing SS 3,764, Z/28 2,187. Don't take it to the bank.

Thanks for the rough breakdown William. I would have though less SS since they came with a decorative hood as part of the package, but I will go with your gut. You have probably forgotten more about first gens than I know.  ;D
I think it was explained COPO didn't figure in to that number, and was separate since it was called out differently for that car.

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

So was the other hood pictured the fiberglass? is that a somewhat forced air hood? (looks a bit fancy for racing)

What about the COPOs?...Joe

Certain options were included in the total only when they are listed in the vehicle build record. ZL2 was included with COPOs 9560 & 9561 and does not appear in build records [or documents] for those cars. So, not counted. At this time, the earliest known ZL2 installation is a Z/28 at the Van Nuys plant.

BTW COPO build records for both list the L78 engine. The 'official' L78 build total of 4,889 is overstated by 1,066.

And the tailpanel says it's a SS396 car. Notice it's not glossy. :)
