Back in October 2006, there was a discussion on 69 Gas Caps. I dug up my original cap, or the cap that was on my 69. I can not be sure if it is “the original” cap but it appeared to be.
In the picture “Gas Caps_1” shown below, the cap on the left is the replacement or reproduction. It was 10 years ago I purchased the cap and I can’t remember if it was a repro or a GM replacement. The cap on the right is my original. Picture “Gas Caps _4” shows the “Vented” and “Anti Surge” scrip stamped into the cap.
Notice the difference in the location of the ears on the OD versus the orientation of the handle tabs. The pic #2 shows the different plating on the inner detail. Again, the original cap is on the right. Pic #6 is the “S” stamping on the tab on the repro/replacement, and pic #7 is the “S” stamp on the original cap tab.
Does anyone have an original or survivor 69 with “the original” cap? I would like to see pictures of it and know the plant and build date of your Camaro. My 69Z is a Norwood car built 05A, or during the 1st week of May.
