when i bought my 05A x77 car in 1977, it had 31,000 miles on it and it has the black plastic cap. i dont know what happened in the first eight years, but i would assume with 31,000 miles, that it would be original.
great thread

I had know idea that what I thought would be a routine question, would blow out to a 4 page discussion!   Shocked   Smiley
The inoccent 68 power steer cap has stirred up a hornets nest of controversy and parts book searching!

I just checked the P/S cap on my 02C built '68 Z/28. Here's what I have:
- metal cap (appears to have been originally painted black - most of this black paint is worn off).
- the words "USE AUTOMATIC TRANS FLUID TYPE A - CHECK OIL HOT".
- short (44 mm) black plastic tube (stick).
- "FULL" line on tube (stick) is 20 mm from the bottom of tube (stick).
- cap is vented on the top of the cap through the tube (stick).
- cap is a little loose on the P/S pump housing when it reaches the stops. OK it you back it off very slightly. worn gasket?
- I'm not 100% positive this is the original cap.
Hope this info helps.

That is the same cap on my 11C 68 LA car which I also know is correct and original.
Every 69 in my shop now (3) have a black plastic cap-2 sb -11c and 09a one bb 07b.
My 69 El Camino sb 07c  has a plastic cap also.
I think we have a winner-Black plastic.

I did finally change the PS cap on my 69 - 03D Z11 to a plastic.
However, I left the metal one in the trunk, just in case. Smiley

Hi Frank -

   Thanks for confirming your P/S cap is the same (and original) as mine. I'm going to declare my cap to be original also. It too is a Los Angeles car.

For what its worth, my 05A, Norwood 69Z had just over 45K miles before the restoration.  I can not be 100% sure but my PS pump appears to be original to my car and it has a metal cap.

Acording to the 5 pages of discussion here in this thread.
That is not the original cap for your car - Or is it? Huh

dave, we should get together and compare notes on our cars, as they were built the same week!

Even in the concours judging, we want to see a natural cap on 67 and 68 and black on the 69s.

Is the PS cap metal or plastic for 1969?

The Corvettes changed to the plastic cap in mid April 1969- were the Camaros the same?

I am corrected from my prior post of possible overspray on my cap. Embarrassed
Jerry is right  Grin

My cap is natural-the black was old grim and the under side shows no signs of ever being painted-now (that I have it apart to reseal it).
On another post I checked the pump numbers which are correct also and un restored or replaced since new like the cap.
Thanks
