  • Looking for parts, 58 Commander

    Christine needs a new gas tank. I don't know if there are any available NOS and SI does not show one online. I also need an instrument cluster, or a working odometer. the speedo works but not the odometer. For those that don't know, Christine is a 58 Commander 4 door sedan.

    Thanks

    I had my 55's tank coated inside and out and baked. Is there a Gas Tank Doctor outlet near you?

      We don't have any gas tank doctors around here. I can probably save mine but I was trying to take the lazy way out.

        There are few, if any, tanks left out there. Any one capable of being saved should be.
        Have your local radiator shop give it a good cook. Get a sealing kit from Caswell, Eastwood, POR15 or any number of other places. Follow the directions. Don't let the sealant seal your pick up tube.
