The factory '67 tank was still the 16 gallon tank with the low top. You'll probably need to get a tank armor for a '69/'70 if you insist on having one.

Do you really drive it enough to worry? I'd be concerned about adding an un-engineered piece of structural metal near a gas tank that you have no idea what it will do in a crash. I have never seen a burned mustang in a junkyard, nor have met anyone that has. I have seen many 64-66 mustangs with severe rear end damage and NO gas leaks. I have 430,000 miles that I've put on my 64, put in the 22 gal tank in 1992 (bought the car in 1990) and am not concerned about a fire. When the cars were common, there were still extremely few fires- ALL over 60 mph- and with less on the road and the cars a lot more visible, there's a good safety factor right there.

I agree I don’t think 67 will work for the reasons stated in post #2.

I will say I love my tank armor. For multiple reasons. Sheer strength, trunk protection from above and lastly accident protection. Also adds a little weight above the rear wheels.

Had mine painted when I painted my car and it looks great.

Would think you need to get the TA made for the ’70 tank which is 22 gallons
