    wood grain dash has a crack but don't show parts for one in 72, looks like 74 had it. has the different steering wheel(look at my original post for pics), but looks like standard interior I guess. it has a chin spoiler. I do know the car is exactly as they sold it. did the 72 have the small one piece spoiler available for the back?

    By 72 the small spoiler was gone. RS's didn't have the spoiler unless ordered (D80 option) and then it got the large one. Dealers installed spoilers and could have installed the small one if requested. Maybe the original buyer didn't like the large spoiler and wanted the small one.

    The woodgrain is correct for your car. That steering wheels is a option. The chin spoiler and rear spoiler would of been added by someone. Short spoiler was a 70 71 Z28 item

    Rear spoilers were an option (D80) as pointed out earlier. They were not specific to a Z28, whether short or 3-piece. A Z28 could be ordered without a rear spoiler. A non-Z28 could be ordered with a spoiler.

    Your car most likely has the Z23 (Interior accent group) option which includes woodgrain inserts on the dash & steering wheel. However, you have the optional NK4 sport steering wheel, which did not have a woodgrain insert that the standard steering wheel does. So basically you only end up with woodgrain on the dash.

    If your car did not come with a rear spoiler then the front spoiler was added, possibly at the dealer when new or later. The D80 spoiler option included both front & rear spoiler in 1972.
