I thought the X11 was proof of the style trim package in a base model.

Tom

Style Trim was an exterior-only package; had nothing to do with the interior.

John,

Thnaks, I continue to learn. Looks like i HAVE THE Z23 as well. The deluxe steering wheel with wood insert, wood trim - only on the drivers side of the dash, stainless trim on the pedals, and the grab handle on the passenger side. Should I be looking for anything else?

Nope - that covers the Z23 content.

And that car does not have Z23 (dash grab handle), right?

It's starting to look like the note in the P&A is correct, but so far we haven't heard from anyone with a smooth wheel.

Non-SS, non-RS, non-Z87 and non-Z23 cars "should" be smooth. Anyone out there with a base car without Z22, Z23 or Z87? (I would assume base Z28 and COPO cars would also fit this catagory). We need your input as well.

The pebble grain wheel was the standard wheel used on all models. The wood grain shroud as been stated was used when the car was optioned with Z87 or Z23. I have looked at hundreds of original cars and they all came with pebble grain rims. Some were worn almost smooth due to wear, but there were remnants of pebble grain. The smooth rim started in 1970 and used on chevelles and other cars. Could some very late cars have them possibly, but the pebble grain wheel is correct for 1969 at least that has been my finding.

The Nov 68 Canadian parts manual lists the 3939731-735 part #'s, but not the others.

Also confirmed that there is only one set of steering wheel broadcast codes used during 69. That is, there was only one standard wheel of each color in the system. If there were different versions, they were considered interchangeable.

My 05C NOR Z23 SS396 has a smooth wheel. Could have been changed, but it's cracked and the rest of the interior is original.

Just looked at a survivor 02B SS convert with a smooth wheel. No question it is OE.
