    1969 Plymouth Sport Satellite station wagon gas cap.
    Mysteriously gone.
    Does not have to be wood grain, I can paint or make a decal for it.
    68 and 70 may be the same.

        That looks like it could be the same as 66/67, specifically the Plymouth ones (I think all 66-70 wagons use the same), and they're extremely prone to theft as they are a very hard to find and specific piece.

        They are also expensive. If you get a replacement, put a tether on it, or another approach-

        I believe a 67 GTX/67-69 Barracuda "nascar" cap will work.
        It will look cool, be harder to steal, and may even be cheaper and easier to find!

        I would get a second locking gas cap in addition to an original replacement. If you are just driving around casually or to marginal areas, use the locking. For car shows or other events where you want the original look, swap it out. It's a hassle, but there are douche bags everywhere that will swipe something just for the hell of it.

          No fuel gone, just the cap.

          FU64RY - saw you pulling the Hemi on 74 but never found you on the fairgrounds!

          Sucks your gas cap disappeared. I would like to think it was not stolen...

          This has been a problem with these specific caps for a looooong time.

          Back in the early 1990's, my bother had a 66 4D Belvedere, and his cap got stolen about 3 times before he got a generic locking one.

          At least two of the thefts occurred at car shows.

          Back then the were running about $20 if you could find one.

          Now they are around $100, and harder to find.

          Even worse are the ones that look like they are part of the side molding on a non-wagon.

          Morning
          We are always just in front of the announcers stand on the back side of the stage where they have the t-shirts and the club drawings. Because it was behind my wagon it could have easily been missed. Sorry you missed me.
          Every time I fired it up there was crowd watching.
          I'll have it at Carlisle next month in the fun field again behind the SW.
