John, I don't know the exact size, but you might want to look at one from a
'68-'69 Chevelle. I was going to look at using one on my '58 truck before I
had to sell for health reasons. The reason I like that one is because they had
a rear facing filler neck. You could mount it in the rear most part of your
frame, and have the filler neck come out behind the rear license plate. If you
get the spring loaded license plate holder from the same donor, then you
flip down the plate, fill your tank, and flip it back up, and hide the filler
Some guys will say that those rear facing filler neck tanks were dangerous
because they could be damaged in a rear end wreck, and blow up, but I feel that
they made millions of them, in all different models of cars, and only a few
of them ever blew up. I really liked the idea of it, cause the tank was
hidden, and no holes cut into the body. Like I said, they was several
models of cars with this style of tank, so look around, and find one that fits.
Just an idea, check it out if you want. Good Luck.
