  • Fuel System: Gas tank needed for 59 lark vi

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a gas tank for my 59 Lark VI. Mine is extremely rusted and I need to replace it. New or used as long as it's rust free. Does anyone have one or know where I could get one? I've tried the usual Stude websites but no luck

    Thanks!

    Scout,
    There are very few "extremely rusted" tanks that are not repairable, and even fewer good replacements.
    Why not fix it or have it fixed?

          I recommend Bob. He provided me with a good tank and safely shipped it to the east coast of Virginia.

            Maybe, now that I'm retired, I should collect all these rusty tanks that folks are throwing away, refurb them and make available.

              I replaced the tank in my '60 Lark six when I thought it was leaking.

              I later found that the sender gasket was dried out and hadn't needed to replace it. It, and I are in Ohio, if you can't find something closer, we can work something out.

                I have a N.O.S. tank for 1959-61 Larks at $400.00 plus shipping.
