In my experience most automatic COPOs are column shift. 21 of the 22 ZL-1s were; only #54 had a console.
A good friend owns an automatic Yenko Camaro with a factory console; quite rare as most were converted column-shift.
As I recently pointed out elsewhere the existing L72 COPO Camaro body of knowledge is based on half or less of the 950 or so built. Plenty left to learn.
