    65 fuel filler line

    So my gas tank filler line at the very top were the cap goes on has went the way of all old Chevy body metabthat isn't properly protected: rust. The connection edges/slots where it would meet the gas cap have bent and worn away. I'm hoping to replace it with original parts so I can get a cap back on. Plan A: find a replacement part plan B) I'm thinking of getting the top section for a Chevy truck of the same year (seen new OEM parts on line), chopping my current filler line back where necessary and welding it on or Plan C) maybe connecting it with large coupling hose and clamps after I chop a section off. Anybody have parts for plan A? A cap would be nice too, but that's secondary need at this time. Thanks!

    I would consider parting with the 1966 neck - note the cap fitting is a little bunged up.

    Thanks. My filler is in about the same condition as you '66. I think I'll start with just getting a cap and seeing how well it fits. Anybody have any idea what part number or equivalent part/size gas cap I'd need? Are the Chevy truck caps the same size and fit??

    Gas Cap

    Well you can start with the GM P/N & see if equivalents are listed at the auto parts store
    Attached is a photo of Mr. Plows original - better yet the photo also shows the same vehicles that used van caps:
    PU's, Corvair, CORVETTE! etc

    I used a seal puller to work out the bumps and bruises on my filler so the cap would go on properly. This is the cap I just bought off Amazon after the rubber seal on my last plastic cap rotted away. Pricier than the other one mentioned above but so far the quality seems very good. There are some with a bowtie swivel cover for the keyhole but they're around forty bucks.

    Gas cap

    I do think it has to be a vented cap. I do like the locking part. It won't go missing.
