Yes it should be not vented but it seems odd that it wouldn't say so like most of these examples my friend has in his 65 parts collection.

He was asking me why one is plain and I said maybe it's some Canadian car attribute since mine is that way.

Odds are against it being original though with how many chances there are for it to be lost over the span of 55 years.

His examples all appear to be Stant brand so maybe embossing them "not vented " is a running change, but then again the difference could indicate a replacement many years newer?

Both of mine have the embossed "NOT VENTED" 2 tap caps. I would say that one is likely a vintage replacement.

Yes, it's interesting that of the 4 pictured, the plain cap lacks the tabs

Although my cap is plain, it still has the tabs, but it doesn't have the dome rivet with the Stant symbol

If your Canadian cars have Stant caps like the other 3, that would be good evidence.

Note how 1 of the 4 has the tabs facing the other way in relation to the lettering.

Heard from bigbowtielover on the ChevyTalk forum:

"All mine had the "Not Vented" lettering except my wagon but the wagon cap is different shape anyway and is vented.

I have seen the smooth non lettered caps before as a cheap replacement part available at parts store.

The thin cap with hole in wing is a no name universal replacement cap to fit many makes of cars.

The hole in the wing is for a lanyard. Some foreign cars had lanyard to prevent losing cap."

We got consensus here so safe to say this one's solved.
