If anyone is looking for a NOS gas cap these guys have a few

Usually these sell for more than what these are selling for. I already have one as a spare but if I didn't I would buy one of these.

Would be nice to see a Ford part # on those. I don't recall ever seeing a pop-open cap that was made by Ford that looked like that. Of course as with anything that Ford made who knows.

Don, what is it about the cap you are uncomfortable with?

Re:If anyone is looking for a NOS gas cap these guys have a few

The cap is a NEW service replacement , not NOS. It was issued in the '80's. I think the part number is E3ZZ ? It uses a cap behind the pop open cover. Ford re-styled it due to the pop open cover popping open when driving, leaving the filler tube open...

Re:If anyone is looking for a NOS gas cap these guys have a few

I have one just like it here on my desk and the part number on the cap is c7za-9a112-b. 100% Ford part. To get one just like the original with the cap attached to the flip open part you would pay AT LEAST double what they are selling these for IF you could find one. Personally I like the "newer" ones cause no gas fumes escape from the cap.

Re:If anyone is looking for a NOS gas cap these guys have a few

yes. They were cast from the original molds, so they do have the C7 part number. The only difference is they omitted the inner spring loaded cap and replaced it with a twist on cap. The part number on the box is E3ZZ from when they were re-issued. Still, it's a very nice cap and a good price

I agree those are the true old school NOS ones. I have had the original ones on my car and even replaced the gasket but they seem to always have gas fumes coming from them. The newer NOS ones don't have gas fumes leaking from them.

Are the judges ok with the newer style NOS part?

On a local show level they would never get that picky IMO. National level, maybe someone else can chime in.

Arlie: you gonna do national shows?

Of the two MCA shows that Iv'e been to the judges never opened the gas cap. In fact at the Grand National I had to put tape over the gas snout. That was due to fire regulations.
The AACA is the same way .
