Durant "D" Gas Cap

Opinion needed: Durant "D" gas cap, was it originally painted silver or black or what? Anybody have an idea?

Hi Mike.....

Re: Durant "D" Gas Cap

Me also Frank, and Butter's lads repro them.
Aftermarket has
Aluminum cap for C, F, M, S2, S4
Bakelite with D for M, M2, R, 40, 55, 60, 65, 66, 75
Chromium plated 60, 63, 66, 70, 618
Black Enamel E, 63, 66, 406, 407, 416, 610, 612, 614, 616, 617, 618, 619, 670

Mike might have a jobber or off some car with a D name ?

Had to chuckle as Terry supplied US aftermarket info but it missed the 65 the Canada one has. Same part numbers in both aftermarkets just adjusted to add / deleted models not made both sides of the border. Ours 5 cents more for cost. Interesting the elusive 611 is not mentioned for gas cap but is for gas tank and gauge.

Re: Durant "D" Gas Cap

Thanks Norm & Frank
I purchased one of these from the Butters a couple of years back. Excellent quality with the "D" on it in metal. I'll probably paint it black since the tank is black and the filler is black. Just wanted to know. Frank funny thing my car came with the Bakelite radiator cap on it. I'm looking for a winged Durant radiator cap correct for the model 65 for some bling, but will keep the Bakelite one for a backup. Anybody got one of metal ones out there? Not sure if the Butter's cast this one.
