Split Window Coupe Gas Cap Detail by Steve Mezardjian

Split Window Coupe Gas Cap Detail by 

I used to work for a Corvette store many moons ago that carried anything and everything for a Corvette. I remember the first time I handled (fondled) a Corvette gas cap much like this.

I was emamered with the precision of how it opened, but even more taken back by the sheer attention to detail in how it was made, the silky chrome plating, and the lusterous finish.

Just one little part that helps pull the whole rear of the car together so well.

    so beautiful, (and bizarrely I think it would make a great compact or handbag mirror!)

  • L.O.L.You are right CB, it could work in any of those situations. It must be that mother of pearl inlay with the racing flags that does it…
    Thank you for your wonderful remarks!

    stop talking to yourself… you are so bad at that :-)… The only shot I’ve ever sold on redbubble is this exact shot of the exact car… i never thought such a simple photograph would sell… they must have paid $200 for it

  • With all your gorgeous shots Jill, I find that hard to believe :~) but a 63 split window coupe has to be the Mack Daddy of all Corvettes, so it stands to reason. It’s funny isn’t it how that works out sometimes?

    That’s correct! 1963 Corvette, this the only production year for this gas cap cover, I was obligated to total disassembly and repaint of the flags and background on my show quality 63 split window cover, because there was no new old stock replacements, or remanufactured replacements at that time, the uniqueness is that since it is a candy apple paint ( translucent ) the color shot than a gold, silver and white added to give reflectivity. one year only option! as preceeding year as well succeeding years different, also true for the glovebox door! Why? don’t have an answer! have the remaining cans of paint in my storage still to this day, ( 37 years old ) ! ! ! paul

  • Paul,
    Thank you for sharing that with me. That can be such painstaking work, but always a labor of love! I’m just curious, what color is your split window?
