I know i'll be putting in a new one soon, with new sending unit, etc. I was having wierd fuel flow problems, before Jan when I took it in for a new motor.

At that time, I found some gunk stuck in the elbow of the sending unit outlet, cleared it, and had done that twice.

I know many VMFers have replaced tanks - Mustangs Plus has one on sale this month for $160.

Should I just do that one, or consider something else?

The going price for a reproduction gas tank is about 150 bucks. So that is right in the ball park. I will pick mine up at Mustangs Unlimited next week for $149 regular price.

So don't rush to make the sale, because they are $149 all the time at MU or NPD.

I have heard (from the owner of a local Mustang shop) that tanks from North America are made with thicker steel. The manufacturer he buys from is called American Design, a Canadian co. I got mine for $135 last summer.

Would recommend you shop around. Gas tanks range in price from $80-up with the median price being about $95.

I respect the wishes of the webmaster and do not try to sell my stuff on the forum. I would think that EVERYONE would do the same..... If someone needs a price on a part, then maybe a private message would be in order to either Matt or Scott.

Required tools for operating a Vintage Mustang:
1. Duct Tape
2. J.B. Weld
3. B.F.H. (Big Fat Hammer)
4. VINTAGE MUSTANG FORUMS II

Neat idea, BUT, will it drop in to the '67/'68 size wise? Or, must one modify the opening?

I've never actually seen it done, but I have two Mustang magazine articles showing the installation of a 69/70 tank in a 65-68. The only modification required was to the filler neck. Because the top half of the tank is taller (hence 20/22 gallons), the filler neck has to be shortened. And you have to use the sending unit for that size tank. They didn't need to modify the opening.

It looked pretty straightforward. The only modification was to the filler neck.
