Honeycomb taillight panel - 1971 flip-down vs. 1972 screw cap
I can confirm the flip open works just fine, here are a couple of shots. You do still need to paint by the taillight

Are there any repos that work like the original or just the cap with cover? Will they clear the metal panels like on verts?

I have sold many of the repro caps
Drake and ACP version ... has twist on inner safety cop only - no plunger type seal

Other import - has parts to use as plunger style or with safety cap

No complaints of not staying closed ?

While the caps will clear the metal panel - they will not clear the straight trim strips. You will need to get the Mach 1 strips with the notches

I have a 1972 Mach1 and I put a flip down gas cap on about 20 years ago while you could still get NOS parts without mortgaging the house. I never had to make any modifications and it fit beautifully. I have noticed some slight changes in the reproductions from original Ford part but other then the safety screw in cap they only seem to be cosmetic and should fit without any modifications.
