Can anyone tell me how the '53-'57 gas tanks differ from the '58-'64 tanks?

Thanks,
Nick

the only thing ive noticed is the mounting holes and the angle of the neck I just put a 54 in a 59 lark worked out fine

I think the early C & K tanks had a drain plug, the later Hawk tanks didn't.

Some C/K tanks have the fuel pickup tube integral with the sending unit. More commonly, the tube and outlet are built into tank at bottom front.

Wait a minute, you can't put a '54 Sedan Tank with SIDE FILL in a '59 Lark Sedan with a right side REAR Fill, unless you turn it sideways and that is not going to happen.
Was it maybe '59 Lark Station Wagon?
