I remember in the 80's when you purchased them they were the same part #. Noticed no one had responded so dug out my GM April, 1983 parts book and it shows only #3957935 with no designation to left or right and states two (2) are needed. Not sure exactly when it started. Who's got a 70's GM parts book out there to assist with the question  Grin

My '69 Chevrolet P&A list 3957935 for the left side and 3957936 for the right side.

On a side note; the "Z/28" emblems for a '68 Z28 are 3947011 for the left side and 3947012 for the right side.  On 2-15-69 these emblems cost a whopping $3.65 each!

Hey Paul, I have a pair of 68 Z/28 emblems purchased in the 80's and same thing as the 69 Z emblems, one part # for both sides. Might have been around $10 then.... Darn inflation!

The ORIGINAL assembly line part numbers for the 1968 Z28 emblems were 3943255 and 3943256. The casting number underneith will say 3943255-LH and 3943256-RH. Service replacements were part number 3947011 and 3947012, and will say 3943255-6 underneith.

The ORIGINAL assembly line part numbers for the 1969 Z28 emblems were 3949681 and 3949682. The casting number underneith will say 3949681-LH and 3949682-RH. Service replacements were part number 3957935 and 3957936, and will say 3949681-2 underneith.

In the April, 1977 P&A you could still get both the 3957935 and the 3957936. In the April, 1981 P&A you could only get the 3957935, so they discontinued the 3957936 sometime between these two dates. Sorry I can't narrow it down more.

Were the emblems NOS or possibly used? What a surprise that must have been or were they advertised that way?
Good buy.... Smiley

Since I'm a packrat and hoarder, I still have the new emblems I purchased in September 1978, as well as the order form which I've scanned and attached (if I did it correctly).   The order form shows both 935 and 936 parts being ordered, but the 936 beiing replaced/substituted by the 935 part on delivery.   I pulled the parts from the boxes and both had the 3949681-2 pn on the back.   Since my original emblems are off my car and in bags, I then checked those and found both to have only P-394968 on the back.   My car is a late 09C production.

That's very possible. They could have used more than one casting mold or made slight casting changes over the course of the year.
