I don’t know much about Camaros but is that firewall body color? Certainly isn’t anywhere near the same black as the heater box. Inner fenders appear the same . That’s very surprising to me .

Might be the Van Nuys plant as the car in front of it does not appear to be a Camaro.

Definitely the Van Nuys plant. The firewall was painted a duller black than the heater box and inner fender panels. The firewall was definitely not body color.

Here’s a pic of the 67 bird has similar affect notice one inner fender looks that way other doesn’t quite as much could just be camera angle effect plus the change in gloss making it appear body color

Here’s a few more ‘67 Assembly pics, others please speak up w/ plant locations etc.
Gotta love the last shot w/ first drive, somehow you can hear the tires screeching over background noises?
