    Anyone know where I can get a replacement gas tank for a 1965 Wildcat?

    I've searched the internet and called the "usual suspects" (OPG, Summit Racing, Rock Auto, etc...) to no avail. They couldn't even tell me a replacement "equivalent"...

    Frustrated In Dallas!

    I appreciate your help and your offer, but I found a Wildcat in a scrap yard in central TX with an intact gas tank! I'ma pay the $25 they want and get it out from under the car this wknd, spend another $50 and get it cleaned up (bead blasted), and another $150 to have it treated inside n out, and sprayed / covered with a type of coating similar to Rhino Lining. Put in a new sending unit, lock ring and seal, & it should be good to go.

    Again, I appreciate you help and your offer...

    Thanks again!
