    Default Gas filler door spring....Anyone?

    Hey folks,

    I need the spring that goes on the gas filler door, does anyone know where to buy just the spring....or does anyone here have one they want to sell.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    Send me your street address (to juggs@cfl.rr.com) and I'll get a series 2 gas door out to you, I think the hinge and spring part is the same as series 1.

    Mally002, upon closer examination, it doesn't look like the spring is removable. Are 1970 gas doors different than 1972?

    I'm not really sure, I just noticed today that mine was gone.

    I only noticed because when I got gas today the filler door was not closing flush....upon closer inspection I noticed the spring was gone.

    If anyone else knows please reply.

    IIRC, the 70 and 71 doors are the same as far as the outside goes. However, looking at mine (71), the spring and hinge are the same as the later model door. You might be stuck(?) trying to get a series 1 door ass'y. or (if you're not concerned about originality) using a later model door. Good luck.

    Randy, the early cars didn't have the spring, so yours isn't missing, it just never had one. Here is a thread that discusses the lack of springs on the early cars: http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/thread38546.html
