How lucky am l ??

Post  Giobus on Fri Jul 27, 2012 9:36 pm

Evening All,

Just got back from Tassie Exclamation

While driving from Burnie, Devonport, Launceston & Hobart l passed a Supercheap Store.

Like any bloke, l had to stop & have a look.

Well - how luck am l, as l strolled past each row l came to the 'Fuel Caps' section and what was on the shelf the only OLD STOCK item, a new Fuel Locking Cap that suited both Thunderbirds & Mustangs.

Even better, only 50 Cents - Yes 50 Cents.

Yes it now resides on my car.

Hi All,

I got too COCKY the other night Sad

After a bit more research, the Locking Fuel Cap suits 1965 models up.

The filler neck is smaller on 64 models.

So for any of you guys out there with a 1965 - 66 model Thuinderbird > its yours Smile Very Happy Smile

First to PM me gets it.

OK, thanks to the extra generosity of Giobus I now have this cap, it arrived this morning.

BUT it doesn't fit a '66 T-bird either!! Mad

At a guess it looks about 1-2mm too large in diameter but worse, the two fixed lugs that engage the slots in the filler neck are too wide, without actually measuring them it appears by at least 2-3mm. So, if anybody knows what it DOES fit and wants the cap I'll post it to them!

Sorry Kiwibird,

Bloody Tasmanian's stitched me up and now l have passed on the problem to you Sad

>>> Like you said - if someone has a fuel filler which is a bit bigger theres a brand new locking fuel cap.
