I have an original GM wood pantograph model of an SS front grille emblem.  I have a matching SS grille part, but at this time am not sure which model Camaro or Chevelle this is from.  The part number is an earlier #331707.  I know the later 1969 Camaro SS grille emblems were higher part numbers.

If anyone knows specifically which car and year this emblem is for.  Thanks for any help ahead of time.  Sorry if this posted twice - my photos didn't load the first time.

Is that a Chevrolet part #? They were 7 digits, not 6.

I would think so as it is an SS part.  As I mentioned, I have the actual grille emblem with the same six-digit number, which seems to pre-date? the standard seven-digit number.

If you chased that back far enough, you'd probably find that it's an old Ternstedt part number, from the days when they had an inside monopoly on die-cast ornamentation.

Thanks John,
Which makes me think this is for a 1967 Camaro SS.

The 67 SS Grille emblem started life with "350" below the SS.  In mid 67 when the SS396 was released, the "350" was removed from the emblem leaving only SS.  In so doing, the bottom of the mid-year 67 SS emblem was flat, not cut out between the SS as the one shown.  I have included a photo showing the two different versions with the second version on top (note flat bottom) and the original below. 

The 67 assembly manual in the L48 section shows the original emblem number as 3893844 replaced by 3916610.  No grille emblem number is specified under any of the 396 sections.  The service part numbers in the 67 parts manual are 3907916 for 350 and 3918871 for 396.  Interesting it is noted as different for the two engines instead of early and late.  The 68 parts manual lists only the second number for use on 67 Camaros.  For 68 models the part number changed to 3919194.  The service part number included the backing plate causing the difference in service and assembly line numbers. 

I found no six digit part number listing for a Camaro grille emblem (Group 1.303) in any of my parts manuals.  I did find an Ebay listing for a part number 331707 claiming it to be a 69 grille emblem.  The number in the parts book for the two 60 emblems is not that number.

Thanks His67PC,

It may go back to JohnZ's comment concerning the die cast numbering.  Still, I am wondering what Chevy this is from?
