Where are you located? It is a Home Depot staple
Australia - no HD here.... and many products cannot be shipped here due to air cargo regulations.

Here's a picture of the part number on the shroud - sorry about cr@ppy cellphone image, but you can see the dash between 4th and 5th digits.
Maybe that is a way around the GM copyright issue for reproduction parts, use the same number but add a dash?
I should probably explain, I live in Australia so not very easy to get parts, there's no local GM dealer (unless you want a Holden....).

On my work bench I have 2 of these, one is '34 69' and the other is '13 70'. Unless there were different date formats, I think the "month, year" format could be ruled out. If it was "Julian date, year" I would expect to see many with a 3-digit date, followed by year, but have never seen an xxx yy stamp, only xx yy (anyone else seen an xxx yy stamp?). So maybe it's "week, year", and if so, is it production week of model year (like gas tank date stamps) or calendar year weeks??

Use the organic stuff in the bucket - Ready Strip - green goo cuts through several layers of paint.
Unfortunately not sold here.....

Thanks for the suggestions Steve - I have already tried various other methods, but found the heat gun delivers the best result. I may still give the fiberglass stripper a try though, was told it is likely too harsh, but could try a small area that won't be seen once installed.
My query was just over the part number, as I have never before seen a genuine GM 7-digit part number with a dash in it.
336  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Fan Shroud on: July 27, 2013, 04:29:06 AM
My original GM fan shroud was painted by a previous owner, and I have been trying various methods of removing paint without damaging the plastic. So far, the best method is to use a heat gun on a low setting, with a plastic scraper. However, this is taking forever and I have been offered an easy option - another fan shroud off a 69 small block car. My only issue is that my shroud has the part number 3938615 and the one on offer has 3938-615. I'm wondering if the one with the 'dash' in the part number is a reproduction - can anyone confirm?

Charlie, interesting to see what others recommend, but I have heard good things about Doug Thorley Tri-Y headers, especially regarding underside and engine bay clearances, so will be getting those for when I reassemble my car.

To the best of my knowledge left hand drive cars didn't actually have to be converted to rhd when imported into Australia in period, its just that many owners chose to convert them to make driving them on the roads easier.
Steve, until (relatively) recently, all LHD cars imported to Australia had to be converted to RHD for road use, but only in certain States and Territories. I think at least Western Australia and the Northern Territory allowed LHD cars to be registered. The Eastern states were not as relaxed!
From around 1999 (at least in my home state), the laws were relaxed to allow vehicles 30 years old, or more, to remain LHD and still be eligible for registration. Hence the steady stream of personal imports of 60's and 70's cars into the country since then, as the previously-prohibitive cost of conversions could be avoided.
However, as far as I know, cars specifically imported for race purposes could remain in LHD configuration, unless they were also intended to be road-registered.

Hope all is well; I've tried to reach Jerry a couple of times over several weeks, by email and PM, but guessed something was up ( in addition to him being a very busy man!). He posted here within the last couple of days though, so hopefully it wasn't a serious incident for him or his customers......

Wow, $175K....I am in the wrong business, might need to start selling right hand drive Camaros  Grin
Blackout Steve might not agree with you.  I'm sure it's a pain to fabricate or modify all those parts.
$175,000 would ease a lot of pain.....
