At the 50th Aero Warrior Reunion we ended up having a Superbird parked next to us that had a lot of original details!
The first picture shows yet another Superbird with the metal 1969 style power steering pump cap.
This car was a later one in and out of the conversion line on December 12th!
The second picture shows the oil fill cap with the 4 small spot welds.
The third picture shows the washer bottle cap with no markings and opens to the rear.
The last picture shows a hood bumper with the "FK" markings.

Leon,
 When I did a post only about the factory hood bumpers none of the examples that we found were painted.
So this car must have had some paint repairs.
It looks like to the left of the lanyard it is flaking off and a bit darker red underneath.

Jim,
 The oil cap does have the F and E on the ears.
I bought an NOS power steering cap like yours with "CHECK OIL HOT" just in case we decide ALL Superbirds came with them?
The cap in my above reply has "CHECK OIL HOT" and also has "USE AUTOMATIC TRANS FLUID TYPE A".

Stop saying "ALL" when it comes to Superbirds!  Hemi equipped Superbirds come with Federal power steering pumps! LOL! WINGNUT
