Buying a new car today is a lot different than it was in the '60s. Today, options come in packages. Many times forcing you to get three or four options you don't want, just get that one that you do. Back in the '60s, it was completely different. Options were pretty much ala carte, allowing you to order everything down to the smallest details, including the gas cap. In 1967 alone, Ford offered four different gas caps, including two racecar inspired pop opens, which have become very popular upgrades for '67 thru '70 owners today. Today, we are going to show you how to install one using our '69 Mach 1.

These are all the parts that are included in pop open gas cap kit for the '69 Mustang. It actually gives you two options as far as how to mount it. The pieces over here for the original pop open style; if you want the look without the pop open function; they include a gas cap as well. We are going to show you how to assemble it before we install it on the car.

For this installation we used a regular Philips-head screwdriver, a small tip Philips-head screwdriver and a pair of needle-nose pliers.

The first step in the assembly is to mount the emblem. You'll line up the holes and press in. You will use the retaining washes and put them on the back to keep it in place. You will use the pair of needle-nose and crease them just slightly before you put them on so that they fit tight.

The next step is the spring. It's gonna go on the door right over the clips we just installed. I'm going to grab the cap itself. You want to put the washer in the center. Now put the screw in the center. Then, push down on it while tightening. Next, we'll install the gasket over the cap here. Make sure you line up the holes. Now we'll install the cap and the retaining screws. Now our cap is ready for installation.

Our '69 Mach 1 came with factory pop-open gas cap, but, like the rest of the car though, it could use a little bit of brightening and so we are going to install our new gas cap. The first step, pop open the gas cap and remove the retaining screws. Once you have all the screws out, grab the bottom and give it a little tug and it'll come right off. We are going clean it up a little bit before we put the new one on. We are now ready to install our new cap. The four screws on the outside were removed. This stud here is for a fifth screw that comes from the inside to make it so no one can steal your cap. We'll install the outside ones first. You can reuse the original hardware or we do offer new hardware as well. Now, you are ready to install the last screw from the trunk and our installation is complete.

Remember, if you chose to use the pop-open assembly, you do not use the gas cap that is included in the box. Our new pop-open gas cap really glows on the back of our otherwise original '69 Mach 1. You will probably spend more time assembling the cap then it actually takes to install it. Figure no more than 20 minutes for the whole process. You'll be back on the road in no time.
