    ^Bingo!
    I don't remember GM ever putting the "Chevrolet" script emblem on the 2nd gen Camaro grill.

    As already noted, it's not a Camaro grille.

    But the grilles weren't the same for 1970 - 1973 anyway. I replaced the grille in our '72 with one from a '70 - '71 because Mrs. Champ liked the earlier grille that was in her first car - a 1971 Camaro. Top photo is a '72-'73, bottom is a '70 - '71.
