A follower of this blog asked a question about removing the gas tank, and filler neck from their ’58 Ford Wagon.

His biggest question was how to remove the filler neck. Well, it is held into the tank with a large rubber o’ring. It shoves onto the filler neck, and then shoved into the tank. The gas neck also has a small bracket welded to it, near the top. It has a threaded hole in it for a bolt to hold it against the body. You must remove the bolt before getting the filler neck to be removed.  Here is a picture of the neck & gas tank:









Hope these pictures help! Its always easier to visualize what you’re working with before attacking it. It is impossible to see the top side of the tank without removing it.


I was the ebay high bidder on a used gas tank for the Ranch Wagon. It came out of a 1958 Edsel Bermuda Wagon, and was in very good shape.  This particular gas tank is interchanges between the 1957-58 Ford Wagons, 1957-58 Ford Rancheros, and the 1958-1959 Edsel Wagons.  The top side which is usually rusty beyond use, was just surface rusted.  It was quite a surprise to find a tank in such good shape, and for a decent price. New tanks were reproduced around 8 years ago, and have since been discontinued.  The remaining tanks are sold by parts vendors for about $450 dollars!

It also came with a good filler neck as well.
