Give Doug Pray a call for the chain and clip. Stan sold this exact gas cap some years back. I purchased mine from him.Both Stan and Doug may have everything you need in the pic too.

I already checked with both Stan and Doug. Nothing available from them anymore.

The chain is miniature Sash Chain Size 12 . You will need 6" in length.
The chain can be supplied in nickel or stainless steel
The supplier is
Wm A Kilian Hardware Co, Philadelphia PA

As for the clips the overall length is 1 1/8" and the wire is 0.045" diameter.
Just bend it up like in the picture.
As for the cap you may have to fabricate one to look like the original.

I was just looking at my brand new modern gas cap with authentic chain and clips and figured I could machine up a cap to look like the original complete with the sheet metal wing nut type top and fit it to the modern cap internals. One minor problem is that there is so much else to do. One job at a time.
