Definitely. If people wanted to make a fake, i could bet that they would have no idea to change or paint the steering column.

Sorry to bring this up again, although I find it interesting that people ask if they have a 1LE more often now than I have seen in the past because of the used car market. No need to flip the carpet open the hood and check the steering column although that could be faked...


One thing when I was at a local Camaro show I looked at a couple of 5th Gen ZL1's and did not see a white steering column. Matter of fact I checked three and all had black steering shafts. I am not saying the 1LE is special because of color I just find it annoying not knowing why.

Is there a way to pose the question to GM. I am interested....

Lol, that was one of the first things I looked for to see if it was a true 2015 LE1. The fastest way was to get a picture of the option codes from the trunk (drivers side) andstart matching up the codes to what was on th car.

This kind of stuff drove me crazy. As I got older, I just let the curiosity go. The people that may know what the deal was, don’t care (factory worker or sick of working on Camaros )

It could have been due to a new supplier, a bunch of scratched parts they save and refinished at one time or maybe even a test run from a change in process like painting or assembly. The folks that do know also can’t disclose any of that information otherwise they’ll get fired. Some things will forever remain a mystery. But in retrospect we may be reading too much into the piece rather than just looking at the whole.

The thing to watch out for are the documentaries that will hopefully come out later on the 1le or zl1.

Btw beautiful Camaro I drove a zl1 that looked just like your car.
