Did you know that, in the late 60s, Ford offered four different gas caps for the Mustang? One of the most popular was a Pop Open Gas Cap, which we’re installing on our new Mustang project car.
Our 1969 Mustang Mach 1 project car is new to CJ’s. As you can see in the video, it really needs some appearance work and we have some big plans in the works. The new Pop Open Gas Cap is the first in a long list of improvements and, if you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel, you’ve seen how we’re progressing on other projects. We’ll be sharing more about those projects soon.
For our new Pop Open Gas Cap, CJ Pony Parts has quite a few gas cap options available for 1967-1970 Mustang that we could choose from:
- 1967 Running Horse Logo Pop Open Gas Cap
- 1967 GT Logo Pop Open Gas Gap
- 1968 Running Horse Corral Logo Pop Open Gas Cap
- 1968 GT Logo Pop Open Gas Gap
- 1969 Running Horse Logo Pop Open Gas Cap
- 1969 GT Logo Pop Open Gas Gap
- 1970 Running Horse Logo Pop Open Gas Cap
Our 1969 Mustang Mach 1 project car’s original gas cap was in poor shape, just like the rest of the exterior. So, we chose to install a 1969 Running Horse Logo Pop Open Gas Cap, knowing that it would fit perfectly and look great on our Mach 1 project car.
In the video, Bill tell you exactly what you need to install it, and then provides the step-by-step instructions on how to do it. The installation only requires three tools that just about anyone would have readily available: A Phillips head screw driver, a small Phillips head screw driver, and needle nose pliers. The whole process, from removing the old cap, assembling the new one and installing it will really only take 20 minutes or so, with the longest part being the assembly of the new gas cap.
So, if you’re like us and are beginning a major restoration on your Mustang, or just want to replace an old, ugly gas cap, a Pop Open Gas Cap makes for an easy upgrade and looks great!
