Looks like most of that variation is due to the light source.
Different lights can cause huge differences in the color rendition. Soft natural light tends to be the most accurate.

The best photos come from no flash and natural light, from now on I will use my Pantone Chart and give PMS numbers.

Buddy:  I have an 11A(66) built LOS car and it has the hidden partial VINs, and they match.  Everything else on this car has checked out, ie: date codes, and part #'s.  This is the first I have ever heard that '67's didn't have the hidden partial Vin.

Pex68;  Is that your Firewall date code below the partial VIN in next to last pic.?   That's where mine was, partially covered with caulk.

I agree with firstgenaddict, there was a normative practice, but there were anomolies.  First, MOST of the people working on the assembly lines were not a bit concerned about the collectability of these cars.  I did a post about a year ago (Correct Seat Belts) for my Early- 11A  build '67.  I have a complete matched set of date correct Seat Belts that came out of my car.  Everything is correct, except for one thing, they are ROBBINS.  I've been told that ROBBINS were never installed in Camaros.  I KNOW they have not been changed in the past 24 yrs. ('86)and maybe even 3 more years before that.  Who, would change a whole complete set of seat belts, and make sure they were date correct???   And, would they pull a  car from the line for seat belt if they knew they could substitute others with the exact same specs. ????  I am planning to restore and use these belts, because I believe the car left the factory with them.  I know this situation does not pertain to this topic exactly, Just saying I agree 100% with firstgenaddict.
