Can the fbodfather possibly shed some light?

Check out this interesting old shot I found on GM's media website of a 1969 Chevy Camaro SS Z/28 being driven on the big oval at GM's Milford Proving Grounds in Michigan.
The interesting part is that Chevy didn't officially make an SS Z/28 in 1969. You could get an SS or an SS RS or an RS or a Z/28 RS, but not an SS Z/28. I asked around at GM and got blank stares back. Anyone out there know anything about this car or what happened to it?
All Z/28s in 1969 were powered by a 302 cubic inch engine backed by a 4-speed, but SS models came standard with a 350 cubic inch engine and several variations of the big-block 396 were optional. And both automatic and manual transmissions were available on the SS model.
Notice there's no engine identification on this car (Z/28s have a 302 on the hoodscoop sides and SS models have a 350 or 396 badge at the leading edge of the front fenders where this car says Z/28). I wonder what engine was in this car?
