Title: Fuel tank for a 65 C?
Post by: Patrick Marcum on December 02, 2008, 01:13:02 PM
My 65 New Yorker needs a tank.  I see reproductions for 67 and up, but none for a 65.  Anyone know if these tanks will interchange, or where I might find a good tank?  Thanks- Pat

The difference is the filler neck.  If you can save your old one and mig it to a new tank yer in like flynn...

If you need to find one, I would imagine the tank for the '66 would be the same.  Although we're not talking about thousands of cars available, this will give you a little more opening to search.

The filler tube slipped into the old tank with a rubber grommet.  Are the later tubes attached to the tank?

Right
 
Putting a 65 next to a 67, I don't see the difference.  The necks are not solderd in

Isn't the difference the vent tubes?

Vent tubes can be plugged- someone said the sender may be in a different place, but I can bend tubing and break out the wire stretcher, so no prob there.  Just needed to know if it would physically work and filler tube line up.  Thanks for the replies- Pat

Or you can try a 68-70 B-body one...since they are physically smaller but the shape is very similar...would give you some wiggle room if thigs don't line up perfectly???
