Thanks, I just bought one and wasn’t sure if it was unique or not. Trying to keep the 70 to all the 70 specific stuff

Is the guard you just bought the correct one for 1970 only #3973824, or did you buy the 1971 thru 81 #333707. The reason I ask is the 1970 only carpet guard is very hard to find. I lucked out in the summer, when I saw one in very nice shape on E-Bay for about $20.00. I pounced on it. But that is rare.

Not sure exactly when it changed, but the 1971 AIM lists an intermediate part number 3994785 with the change occurring on 1-21-1971. I have seen one of these and it is shaped exactly like the the 3973924 except the one I saw had no evidence of the jute backing. The 1972 AIM lists the same as the 1971 AIM 3994785. The GMWiki lists the change from 3994785 to 333707 on 4/1973 but on an item like this they used up remaing stock so who knows when it actually changed no the production line.

Better put the SBC, TH350 and 8.2” 10 bolt (amongst other things) back in then. :D:p







Just busting your balls…do whatever makes you happy.

Lol, the next owner can hunt those things down…I’m sure there will be plenty to find..and cheap!

I don’t know..some of these hard to find parts intrigue me.

A lot of that stuff ends up consigned to the scrap bin or repurposed in hot rods. Could be they will be rare and expensive by then. :)

You certainly are an anomaly. One doesn’t usually find a heavily modded car owner chasing concourse type restoration parts. ;)
