Gas Cap Emblem
#1
Quick question for the group.

My Gas Cap Emblem is gone.

1: What are the stock emblems?
2: Can I get just the emblem? I've seen them for fendors but never for the gas cap, only complete caps.

Isn´t it depending on the car?? My sportsroof has the same gas cap as the 1970... i think it is standard, no lock or anything and i´m pretty sure it is the original design (i´ve changed the gas cap but i still have the supposed original one with the emblem broken...)

   

Anyway.. if this is the gas cap we are talking about, the emblem is part of the gas cap, not removable...

Hope it helps!!

Yes that is an emblem but it is encased in plastic and you really can't replace it.
While 69-70 gas vas look like 71-3 caps on the face side
they are different on the back side

Back in the 70's these gas caps were a hot target to be stolen off your car. I recall mine being stolen at least three times so a lot of the locking caps were used by owners. I've seen some of the reproduction one's being offered with a cable to make it harder to loose.

True...the gas cap that´s in my car nowadays is a repro and it has the cable... The original doesn´t have it...

I can tell you it is not comfortable to use with the cable, it is attached to one in the bolts that fixes the pipe there and it is not that easy to open and worst to close..

the biggest difference between the 70 and 71-73 caps, is the 70 is vented and the 71-73 is not because of the fuel vapor emissions system.

if your fuel vapor system is gummed up you can get away with using a 70s cap to save some money in the short term.
