Interesting.  My first Camaro was a 6 Cylinder (250) with a 4 speed trans. 

I do not know the VIN number or buld date; sold it in 1982.  
However I have pictures of it and confirmed it has the Z23 option, along with 727 Interior.

It had the "pebble grain" steering wheel.

Here's a picture of the interior with the pedal trim, wood on the wheel and part of the dash along with the grab bar and ad blown-up pic of the steering wheel, clearly showing the pebble grains:

Anything relative of the smooth vs pebble grain wheel in 69 across models, and/or build timelines?

Any supply issues at the plants for this wheel while being assembled?

Your car was build about 3 hours before his.
Great data - same options, different wheel.

Ok two questions:
1) if you got the smooth steering wheel were the horn buttons smooth as well?

2) Kurt how did you figure that out??

VIN difference:    672580 - 672384 = 196 cars difference on the line...

Based on the 21 work days in August '69, and the number of cars produced during Aug, the avg daily rate was 435/day.. assuming a single 8 hr shift that month, 196/435 ~ 3.6 hrs difference on the line...

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the "pebble-grained" steering wheel that you are refering to and what GM refers to as the "grip assist" steering wheel the same? This should be included in the z23 option unless the wood grain wheel was ordered. Are you trying to document the factory's build accuracy as related to  this option package?
