Ed, The fuel door on S&S coaches of the '60s are unique and specific to that coachbuilder. This is what Mr. Baccari is looking for -

I can't believe that I have the last one in the world, But i cant find any pictures of a 66 victoria anywhere.

first question is that a door or a cap? door would be hinged you reach threw it to remove the cap. a cap you twist off the filer neck. the only one I can think of like this is the cap off a jeep wagoner. they had a chrome one with a black handle. this one looks cast to me

I would assume , same as the 61. Cap that is hinged.

Then a spring load to keep it closed.

it is hinged to the front and it looks to be pot metal. i have a tiny piece of it along with the spring and the mount.

Back in that day Pot Metal would have been the cheapest way to make it. You need to find some one who has one and access to the 3D printing. They could make one all but the hinge. The president of our local Radio Club is a Prof. at Lehigh University and they have been making rare radio knobs this way. He brought some to a meeting and said they did not have the technology to do big stuff but its out there. Lets check in with computer geeks.
