No dice, gap between '64 and '67. Vans it is.
I'd like to know how it goes, I might need a new tank.
I'll add the install to my project thread.
It all depends on your budget. We dropped the tank on my 71 Polara and after draining 5 gallons of 25 year old gas did we discover one corner was rusted out. So instead of buying a new tank, I went onto Facebook and found a guy with a junkyard in NJ who’d sell me a tank he had. Long story short, met him halfway, paid him way more than what I thought we had agreed on (he had a delivery fee too), got home and discovered the tank was worse than what we had. Since the car was no where near road worthy (and won’t be for at least a year), we took some JB Weld putty and filled the holes and painted the tank. Works great for me being able to drive it around the yard
Always inspect parts, especially if you're meeting in person. Than you could have flipped some Jersey attitude on him, made him pay you for the hassle, and not been in the exact same boat with a different anchor. Not the end of the world, but a lesson in being more critical of used parts you are buying. Most of us have been there and done that, just one of those crappy lessons we learn from. Yard driven is better than not driven.
Yeah. When I got my stubframe I had the guy take a video of him walking around and hitting it with a screwdriver. I’ve had a few bad deals with getting parts for the car but that’s life
Ugh, that gas tank is hideous!
Thankfully this car is not a yard dog. I drive it on weekends and start it often to run up to temp.
Some JB putty and a coat of paint and it looks good enough to hold some gas and let me drive it around.
If you ever intend to take it on the street, get a new tank. Don't screw around. I can only imagine what it looks like on the inside, plus you're pumping rusty gas through the system.
Trust me, a new tank will be going in when it’s road worthy. My uncle and I pressure blasted and vacuumed as much as we could.
