If you have a full size spare, it will be the same wheel size as the car, in this case a 15" by 7" wheel with an E70-15 tire.

I don't think there is any way to tell by anything in the car as to weather the car had one kind of spare over the other.

I asked this question some time ago and was told Z28's could not get the space saver option. Only 15x7 with E70-15 to match other four tires.

I just checked my restoration guide "Carmaro Restoration Guide 1967-69" by jason Scott and it lists the space save as option N65 and that only 2228 ordered the option in 1969. I don't know how accurate his information is but with 200,000+ built it would be a pretty rare option if he is correct in his numbers.
