The 1970 had a unique lowback bucket seat with separate, movable
headrests.

Both the short, one-piece rear spoiler and the tall, 3 piece 
spoiler were available for 1970. The RPO-D80 spoiler (1 piece)
was included with Z28 and available on other cars. The 3 piece
was available as COPO9796.
 
Standard Camaro had 15/16 front swaybar, none on rear. F41 
(standard on SS396) gave 1" front and 9/16 rear bars. Z28 had
1" front and 11/16 rear bars.

Tachometers were 7000 rpm with red line at 5500 for standard 
V8 & 6000 red line for L78. Z28 were 8000 rpm tachs with 
6500 red line. Speedometers were 150 mph.

SS and Z28 used 12 bolt rear end. (Last year of 12 bolt for
Camaro). The 1970 Z28 and SS396-375 are the undisputed performance
leaders of the second generation Camaro lineup. Road tests of
the 1970 Z28 showed it turning quarter mile times of 13.6 sec. 
at over 100 mph.
