If the ZL1 is for those who want a loaded car, it doesn't make sense to make the Z the same product but with a different name. Priority number one for the Z - beat the Boss in all performance categories. Looks can be an exclusive stripe package or paint.
I agree with most of what you're saying other than spoilers were available early on with the first gen. Zs and the cowl induction hood was available in 69. Overall the first gen Z/28 was all about performance, from the engine package to the suspension package. I'm so tired of people bringing up 6 cylinder variations for a new Z/28 that I could . Make the new Z/28 with a NA V8 and leave the 6cyl engines out of the equation (I'll be polite and not say what I really think).

Not until mid '68 and even then, they were an option until May of '69 when they became standard on the Z.

Sure but not before January of '69 and even then, it was rarely ordered. Became standard on the Z in fall of '69 when the model was on the way out.

The spoilers were available from Nov./Dec. 1966 though they were not part of the Z/28 package at that point. Cowl induction hoods rarely ordered?? I don't know where you lived, but in the Richmond, VA area the ZL2 Special Ducted Hood was ordered in large numbers after it's release in Dec. '68, a trip to any of the Chevy dealers around town had ZL2 hoods about 2 to 1 over regular hoods.

Different front fascia
Ground effect kit
Different rear spoiler (larger)
Z28 badging
Move fog lamps to center of front fascia, make them larger in diameter, round.
Vents in front air dam directing air to brake cooling system.
Standard Cold Air Intake system
Beefier exhaust standard
special steering wheel (The ZL1 wheel looks like a re-badged Cobalt wheel... it's awful)... reminds me of those god awful bubble buttons of the 80's.
Bolt ons to take the car to 475hp as a standard for the z28 package
Beefier suspension with strut tower brace front and rear

Price point between SS and ZL1
