Morning all-
I got into a bit of a discussion on needed Torino parts, and the theme for Wagon owners seems to be the need for a replacement fuel tank.

I was talking to a company that builds tanks, and the guys were asking what sort of demand is there, and is there a tank available to look at.

The issue here is, frankly I won't lie, it's not a cheap preposition to undertake due to low volume and basically fabricating a custom one-off piece.

The balance comes in, much like we've been doing recently for other items, in getting a group buy together to produce a part for our cars.

I posted up on Facebook, but I want to have something here so we can it where discuss things and not have the discussion get lost in a matter of days.

I might be interested in one, but my budget is very tight. My car’s been running off a jerry can in the engine bay because there’s rust in my tank from sitting so long, but I was going to go the cheap route and dump some sealer/fluid into the tank.

What I kind of want to do though (once I have the money...) is have Fuel Safe make me a fuel cell. The tank location really isn’t ideal in a driver’s side hit.

Hmm. I have a '76 wagon tank I was going to install into one of my '72 wagons. Wonder what the difference is?

The parts wagon I grabbed  trim from has the fuel tank sitting out of it. Guy said it didn't leak but is gunked up inside. Not sure about shipping but it is free  73 Tirino wagon.

I would grab the tank. A radiator shop can boil the tank for cheap.

That way if a guy is looking for a usable tank, he can have the tank coated inside and out by a radiator shop and be good to go.
