United Pacific Industries’ New Locking Gas Cap

When our classic cars were new, regular fuel was the drink of choice for the cars on the road. Back then, fuel filler necks were a wide-open tube that was easy to access by those enterprising individuals looking to circumvent the cost of fuel at the pump. That’s when a locking gas cap was standard fare on many cars. It’s now 2020, and some things have changed. But the locking gas cap is making a return, and it looks better than ever.

We just found out that United Pacific Industries (UPI) has added the Titan, a vented locking gas cap to its extensive line of aftermarket accessories for classic cars and pickup trucks.

This high-quality, rugged, military-style fuel cap fits 1947 through 1971 Chevrolet and GMC pickup models. It is available in either a chrome-plated or matte-black painted finish. Since this is a lockable piece and sometimes keys get lost, two keys are included for owner convenience.

United Pacific’s new vented, locking gas cap is ideal for vehicle owners that appreciate a robust design to guard against fuel theft. “Our new Titan Vented Locking Gas Cap was created as a direct result of consumer demand,” explains Jai Baek, marketing and creative director at UPI.  “This product guards against anyone attempting to steal fuel when the vehicle is left unattended.”

Part numbers for the United Pacific Industries’ Vented Titan Locking Gas Cap for all of these model vehicles are PN: 110874 for chrome and PN: 110875 for black.
