It always amazes me the stuff that shows up in South Dakota. Can anyone identify what kind of car this cap may have went on? I am guessing something in the 20s such as a Cadillac,Buick, or maybe Hupmobile? Cap is threaded and measures 2.5" inside diameter and 3" outside diameter and is knurled as shown in picture. Thanks for any info!!!

    They are an accessory, not made for any one car. It would fit on any car with a radiator cap that size.

    Thanks PhilDavidAlexanderMorris. Yes I am aware these were an accessory but the cap itself I believe was car specific. Just trying to date the piece by what radiator off of what car would require a cap of this size. Thanks again,Prairie.

    The repros are made that size also. Sounds like a standard made, so no car in mind.
