I just use the gas cap on the White70 and wedge it in between the license plate frame and the lower valance panel.  The homemade tool is definitely awesome though.

I installed a billet gas filler neck and gas cap assembly on my 68 Camaro. It caused gas to back up because of the bend in the neck. So I would push a 10" long fuel hose (7/8" dia?) onto the nozzle and push it past the bend and fill up. Worked great. This might make filling up an AMX easier. So, in the trunk store a piece of hose, license plate stay-open tool, and a small rubber mat to place your knee on.

Maybe a metal extension that would be similar to a gas cap fitting with clamping ears so the two will attach. Could have a slight bent in the extension that would tilt up.

I also made a fill spout for my cars. I cut a piece of 1 inch Home Depot schedule 80 pipe stock. They sell a 2 foot stick that worked just right. Cut it into 2 pieces about 9 inches and 11 inches.  45 degree ell (elbow) in between the 2 pieces. Finished it off with a long-neck filler spout cut to fit into the upper end. Gravity flows just fine to keep up with gas going in. Bungee'd it to the trunk latch. I made it after I pissed off a gas station attendant for spilling gas.

Is this the AMX at Daytona with rear 1/4 panel gas tank access?  
The most powerful tool is the question.
