WTB : INFO Ropal Quick fill gas cap ?
Posted by: ral1963 ()

I have only seen 1 example of this part installed on a Corvair. The custom build "Lost Cause" Corvair had one and still has it installed.

I looked for 1 for years and years, and have never seen another come up for sale, nor have ever seen one on another Corvair

Does anyone know of one on a car other than the Lost Cause?

Does anyone have a picture of one installed on a car other than the Lost Cause?

Lol..Does anyone have one for sale? needpart

I take it your looking for early performance parts or Ropal only? Me too. I have been collecting Eelco and Ropal stuff and buying it whenever I can find them. Eelco stuff is a little easier to find. I plan to build an early car and keeping it period correct. I have found some cool stuff. I have copies of Eelco and Ropal catalogs, contact me if you want scans.

Sorry, no leads.
But I just have to through my two cents in on this topic.
While I like the looks of those quick-fill caps on Muscle cars, and classic race cars, I just can not handle seeing that great big blob of polished aluminum sticking up off the front fender of a beautiful Corvair!
I didn't even like the look of it on that red, "racer-look" Corvair that was auctioned off some time back.
Sometimes, RARE does not mean good.
I think there is a reason that they are so rare.
Most people don't find it attractive either. hot smiley
