Default Vented Gas cap?

Hey guys I just installed a new gas tank from right stuff detailing CFT6801 on my 69 Chevelle.
I am having trouble finding a vented gas cap that will work, I think I need the deep style. The only deep style vented cap that I can find is for a 70 chevelle.
What would be the difference between the 69 and 70?
Thanks!

I called right stuff detailing today were the tank came from and they were zero help. I went ahead and ordered the deep style cap for the 70, I hope it works.
Thanks.

I'm having the same problem with my 68 Elky SS. I paid more for the better tank, not vented as per the original tank I removed (Gas Cap Missing) and I can't find the right vented cap. I bought 2 so far, First one too shallow, second one too deep. Seems like there should be a middle one but I just haven't had luck yet so at least the deep one keeps dirt out.

What I ended up doing is going with a regular non vented cap and added this vent to the tank. Your tank should have two nipples top right.
