A new gas tank: Sometimes you have to pay up.

New Gas tank Top side 2

I purchased a used gas tank a few years ago. It looked solid, however having it flushed and cleaned revealed some pretty thin areas. And with re sealing with chemicals etc, it made me ponder just replacing with a new one. So I did. Found it in ebay, and for a pretty good price. So if you have a ’57-’59 Ford/Edsel Wagon or a ’57-59′ Ranchero you should purchase a new tank. They were a limited production run, so once they are out, I doubt they will make another run of them!


The ebay seller is tomsclassic . He has them about $150 cheaper than everyone else. It’s a beautiful tank and liked it so much, I purchased one for my ’66 Fairlane GTA Convertible.

    No better feeling when dealing with gasoline than being safe. You definitely made the right choice.

    Hi, I’m working on a 1958 Custom 300 right now. I was wondering if 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder cars have different crossmembers. Thanks

      The first ’58 wagon I had was a 6 cylinder car, and I have that crossmember. It is different than the one on my ’58 with the 352 V-8.

        Between the two cars, do you have any extra parts that you don’t need? I am looking for headlight buckets, radiator support, lower valence, and the front turn signal panels. I’ve been consulting your blog for inspiration. Just thought I’d ask. Thanks -Matt
