    I've seen several early 71's with the 70 style lid. (tube is connected to a vertical center hole). Just last week I asked about a very original appearing 71 GS455 that had this same lid and the car was built in March of 71. When did they switch over to the side hole in Flint?
    Thanks for all your help!

    Mine is a late Jan '71 build and came with the vertical hole cap.

    So we have a January and a March example with the 70 vertical hole cap.
    I'm looking for a nice 70 vertical hole cap if anyone has one.

    Here's a picture of a late April 71 build with the vertical hole cap.

    Ken and Brian, thank you very much for the input!!!
    Just one follow-up. Are these Flint built cars?

    I see them with Stepco written on the tab in both a large and small font? Could that differentiate earlier and later style?
