Probably none of them. :laughing:

It's going to need some custom modifications I'm sure.

Go here: http://mustalgia.com/. It's right on the front page. It looks like they're currently out but who knows when the page was last updated.

There is a member here, Curtis74, that has one of those on his '74. I installed it with 4 stock screws, no mods, and it looks beautiful. The super large '74 fuel cap even fits through and is used as stock.

here's the one from Mustalgia. I've had it on for about a year. the fit and finish were perfect.


How does this work with the stock tank/cap? Does it replace the factory gas cap?
Any issue getting fuel nozzles in there?
Any pictures with the race lid open looking down into the tank?

:huh:

They're very simply designed. The factory ring and lid screw to the body with 4 screws.

You remove that ring and lid, and place the Mustalgia lid in it's place, using 4 screws, it's basically taking the place of the ring and lid.

The opening is large enough that you can easily reach in and remove the factory gas cap.

The fuel filler nozzle will reach in and down into the opening to fuel the tank. Nothing changes except the ring and lid get replaced by the Mustalgia lid.

Those are all great Bling. But does any one know of one made that is functional like the cobra is, with out the inside cap, that would fit the C3. The C3 has to be the hardest car there is to fuel with a fuel can. Espacialy if it has a luggage rack over it.
