C3 Lemans Style Fuel Filler Cap

I have a 68' vette and wanted a kit that looked factory to put a race style Lemans quick release fuel filler cap on my car. Does anyone know of a kit for this year of car?

I have a '72 Le Mans. The license plate folds down to reveal the gas cap.

Kidding.

The few that I've seen have all adapted a filler cap designed for Cobra replicas. It takes a bit of fabrication, but nothing too difficult.

Here is one from Factory Five.

5" will barely cover my 69's opening leaving no room for the mounting hardware. That only leaves fiberglassing a new smaller opening to fit this cap. Not a viable option for my needs. I like the looks but not at the expense of butchering up my body. A flange of 5.75" would leave enough for the perimeter screws.

I got one a few years back from a place called Mustalgia or something like that. Mustang supplier but made these for the Vette. I think it was about $200 or so.

This is a filler cap from England, its not the real filler type.
There is a quick fill unit under this. I found the other ones too big.
Works good and like the look of it.

I found the guy that owns Mustalgia when I looked for one of these for my friend's '74. It was a very nice bolt in replacement for the stock lid.

It was designed to mount using the factory screws, and the stock screw on fuel lid fits inside the cap.

I don't remember the price though because I traded him a prepared Hydrobooster for his Corvette, but I do recall it was custom made specifically for Curt's year C3...and I think he offered them for all the different size lids that C3s used.
