Actually all of those pictures (or a different take) are posted there. :)
That's not just the exhaust system install, that's getting ready for body drop.

thought this is an interesting photo

Pete Estes in a 67 convertible at the GM proving ground

it has been said that Pete liked convertibles and this was a reason given to build the 1968 Z/28 convertible

I don't know if it has been documented that the wheels were painted with the special paint color on Camaros.
I think they may have been.

I know of a 1968 Z/28 special paint orange that was bought new with the 5 rally wheels painted orange

Chevelles come with a nice build sheet and have seen special paint with the wheels painted and it is documented on the build sheet

There are special paint taxi police fire military etc cars and trucks and some came with the small hub caps and the wheels were same color as the car
There are multiple Centennial Chevelles which have their SS wheels painted GOLD per the build sheet instructions SO yes the Camaro could have had it's wheels painted orange at the factory.

I have this photo in my files of a '67 with body coloured wheels. I'm not sure when that might have been taken, looks period ? Has California black plates.

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

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

The complete history of the ZL-1 engine project at Chevrolet is being researched; the author for this famous track test was interviewed. He stated the test took place on an unusually warm day in late January, 1969. The street ZL-1 Camaro used was definitely the #2 car. The #5 ZL-1 was final-assembled on or about March 4, 1969. Several original photographs from the article were obtained, one showing the #2 car parked in Dick Harrell's shop. A wall calendar set to January 1969 is seen in the photo.

There has been some controversy concerning #5 as raced by Shay Nichols. Period photos show it with a white standard interior; all 50 Fred Gibb ZL-1s had black standard interiors. Gibb dealership records show #5 was sold to Phil and Shay Nichols on May 7, 1969. Obviously, had an interior swap. Last known owner claims it was beyond repair and was junked. #2 still exists.
Learning more and more about less and less...
