    AJ71DUSTER,I think the 70's trucks are the same,you might find the same colour.You can try Aspens and Miradas Cordobas.

    Thanks for the suggestions i will start going to the junks yards around here, I'm affraid that most of the yards don't have much of anything left from the 70's.

    Thanks

    It is most likely a '71 only cap. My '71 Duster had the incorrect cap on it when I got it and was loose. I found out '71 a-bodies have a different filler neck than the other cars. I couldn't find a cap to fit so I put a '70 filler neck in the car.

    '70's Dodge trucks are the same except they won't fit the '71. Been there tried that.

    '71 only caps fetch big $ on ebay.

    Next time you put gas in it, lay the cap down upside down on the bottom of the rear window. When you take off with out putting the cap on , it will go with you. The 1st time you go around a left hand corner, it will slide over to the other side and you will hear and see it.

    Don't ask how I hit upon this info.

    Like I said....don't ask me how I know off this..
    When I worked at the C/P dealer, I had a customer's Duster out for a road test and I had to put some gas in it.
    It was in the middle of a snow storm and the only place I could put it was on the back window. When I made a left turn onto the street, I heard this terrible scraping noise. It was the cap slidding across the ice on the window.
    I learned my lesson.
