    I'll throw my 2 cents worth in here. Having been through rust and scale in the gas tank of my 66 Daytona, I can empathize with your delima. Mine wasn't pinholed from rust so I did an econo clean and seal. If ya have to replace the tank, I'd rather move a fill tube as opposed to a salvage yard tank that may be full of gremlins. Ya may wind up with similar circumstances. I'd grit my teeth and buy da NOS tank and move the fill tube and it's already embossed for the sedan location.

    They got the tank off and said it's done for. I was skeptical too. Supposedly, they found us a replacement from a salvage yard in Raleigh. So we may be rolling again by the end of the week and getting ready to address the body rust issues. Thanks!

    What part of NC are you in? If that tank doesnt leak or isnt crushed I have seen very few that cant be boiled and sealed. Depending on how bad it is a radiator shop could be your friend. If that doesnt work fill the tank full with 8 parts water and 1 part muratic acid then seal it with a good tank sealer. I prefer the Kreme brand myself but there are others reputed to be as good. Most body supply houses and better motorcycle shops carry some type,though m/c shops will usually have to order the larger size you will need. Steve

    Is there another 'Brand X' tank that would fit a 1966 Stude sedan? I was told an early 1950's Ford Customline repro may............

    That is correct. What SASCO has in stock fits 59-63, but they say it can be modified to fit 64-66 by relocating the filler tube.

    I think that the only tanks that Sasco has left are for the wagons.
    You can move the filler neck to fit your car.

    Thanks for the info! The car came from Virginia. It's got rusted rocker panels (bad) and front fenders. We're gonna order replacement rockers, but my brother says can fix the fenders.

    Check with SASCO. You may find a new one at a good price.

    Anybody in NC got a gas tank for 66 Cruiser?

    While mine's not leaking yet, my mechanic insists I need a new one because of serious rust. I just wanted the vent tube opened up and debris cleaned out of the bottom of the tank. But, it's already off the car. The problem started with air being trapped in it and not being able to fill it with gas or getting steady fuel flow to the 2V carb on the 283 engine.
