The early Luv's had a smaller gas cap. I am not sure of the cut off year 75-76? The ones you see mostly are for the later years. If you tried one that didn't fit I would guess you need the earlier size cap. You might even try a Datsun or Toyota cap from the same year as your truck. Good Luck

You could get a replacement filler tube (not sure if that's the right name) I put a different bed on my luv, and it had the same issue. The section were the cap goes to the bed had a bolt on the back. At least that's how I would go about it.
