Once a year I go the the EZ pull in New Ringold PA. It's rare to see any Tri-fives there, but today I seen this one. Not much left, but noticed something I never seen before. Some sort of locking device on the body at the gas door. Ever see one of these?

Didn't get the gas door lock, looked in bad shape and no key. When I loaded the pics I thought to myself, why did I not even notice that pair of wheels! Guess since I have 5 correct wheels that it didn't register. I did pick up the original master cylinder, but that was it off this one.

is there a lock underneath the middle piece? Usually someone on this site knows something about whatever is discussed. Maybe someone will see the blog and identify it. Very cool.
