Saw that a day or two ago.
Have not seen a jack mast base that shape in a 69 Camaro before.
Assembly line jack components (ratchet mechanism, load rest hook and base) are typically grey.
Rivet date code number unclear (at least to me) but could just be the photo, or because the rivet appears to have been sanded to show it.

I am thinking maybe that the jack base is possibly from another GM product, and/or from a different year GM.

Tim, this set appears cobbled together, the load rest appears correct and it has the usual stamping, the base is not nor is the jacking mechanism, both are incorrect. The photo doesn't show enough detail to assess the mast (although the trapezoid shape is typically correct). The shape of the jack handle looks OK however the photo detail is inadequate.

is load rest a repop?
