Does anyone have any suggestions where I might find a gas cap (my original mysteriously disappeared) for a 1964 35' Chris Craft Cavalier?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Not trying to give you a hard time, but did you bring it by the Mutual station at the intersection by the Dunkin Doughnuts on Rt 53 in Hingham back in 71 or so? This was a tuition-money job; on my last day I kept the gas caps from all those who didn't say please and thank you. Had an oil case box about 1/2 full of caps by the time I was done. My cohorts didn't quite know what to say.

I guess it was kind of fun when one of my "victims" came back, all po'd, wanting their gas cap back. Whoever was on would just bring out the box and tell the person to pick out the one that belonged to their car... http://media4.hypernet.com/~dick/ubb/biggrin.gif

Yes. Mitch LaPoninte lists gas caps for CC's in his catalog. His web site is: http://www.classicboat.com
You might also try Scripps Marine: http://www.chris-craft-parts.com/parts.htm

By the way, if you find a gas cap for an '86 Jeep Grand Wagoneer sitting on top of a gas pump in Hays, Kansas it's mine.

...And by the way, if you want to know more about the history of your particular Chris Craft contact the Mariners' Museum: http://www.mariner.org/chriscraft/ they have all of CC's old records on file, and for a small fee they'll xerox the original factory check-sheet on your boat--when it was built, what its original specs were, and where and to whom it was sold.

Also, I was able to get a xerox of the engine manual and parts list for my '60 Cavalier from:

Duby Marine
254 Sweeney Street
N. Tonawanda, NY 14120
716 694-0922
