1968 1969 headlight actuator shields
« on: November 05, 2022, 11:02:38 PM »
I was looking in the aftermarket world for the headlight actuator covers 3925475 and 3925476. When I checked the repops at Heartbeat City, their description stated that no 68 Camaro had these with an embossed number. As luck would have it, I found a NOS left side with the part number cast in it. So if HB City is correct, did I buy an over the counter part?

My original's on my 68 BB car had the part numbers stamped on them. I have one side of another car i took of  68 rs back in the early 80's at has a number on it. So I say he is wrong!

There's a lot to know about these cars. Would you happen to have a build date on the big block car?

Thanks. Mine were long gone, so I have nothing to go by and want the car correct.

My originals are still intact and in place, 69 RS/Z. I guess I should get pics. It seems parts and documentation of these cars never ends.  :)

I think with few exceptions (inner fenders, suspension) every part has a date code or part number. I've verified fenders, doors, door skins, etc. Since I like original and survivor cars, it's nice to know the details. Thanks for the help.
