Does anybody know the part number or were to find a fuel filler neck for a 73 ? I'm buying a spectre f48a tank for it.

I have one, came off a 73 sportsroof. I'll take some pics in the morning, but I believe it's in decent shape.

Seems in decent shape. No dents, anyhow. The top where the cap screws on is a little chewed up from decades of use, but the cap locks on tight. There's a little bit of gas in this tank, and when I turned it upside down, none came out around the cap. If it's something you can use, is $20 shipped fair?

Sounds good to me, next question, How is the fuel tank? If that is good I'd take that as well.
If your just willing to sell the filler neck that's fine with me too.

Gonna keep the fuel tank for now. I'll probably clean it out, seal it and repaint it. Won't have down-time with my car this way. The filler neck is all yours if you want it, though. If you don't mind, pm me, and we'll get this fuel neck off to ya!

I did get the cross member figured out, I took the one I had and cut down both sides to fit. Looks pretty good! and the filler neck off of the parts car is rotted :(

Thanks for the lead, but the only thing they offer is the grommet. It would be nice if the was a supplier of New necks.
