Both Number 3 (1LT) and 296 (2SS) lack any height adjustment on the passenger seat.

According to the" GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAMARO" PDF
the SS driver's side has a 6-Way Adjustable power seat (description is second)
but the 4-way driver's side (below) ALSO goes up and down(description is first)

Yes, this is correct. The driver seat has up/down adjustment, the passenger seat does not. I believe the manual up down lever shown is on the LS??? Number 3 has the 6 way power seat. Passenger seat on both Number 3 and 296 is manual for/aft, with power recliner. So the same for 1LT and 2SS.

Most would agree that we HAD to keep the 'look' of the concept.

Many arguments ensued over whether or not the roof should be raised - and when it IS raised, the car loses 'the look' -- so the decision was to go with the lowered roof.......

Now -- that necessarily drives other stuff -- like sun visors. Remember: in the 2003 model year, the Federal Government phased in a head impact standard (which was the reason the 4th gen went away and the nameplate went on hiatus..)

Originally we planned on lighted vanity mirrors -- but -- couldn't put them in the program and pass (with flying colors) the head impact standard.

Production:

The later is rather lame, not to mention lacking the beautiful 3-point strut tower brace!

Thank You Number 3 for sharing your thoughts on the new Camaro. I am glad you had the chance to have a CTF and give your honest feedback. GM really went the extra mile on this car to ensure perfection. I am sure the smallest little bugs were found on the CTF and fixed quickly by GM BEFORE any our cars ever leave the factory. Thank You, Thank You !
