Does anyone know where to buy a 1960/65 gas tank for a Ranchero?

Gas tank for a 1963 Ranchero

If you looking for a New stock tank.They are not reproduced.This is what I did on my '62 RANCHERO.I got a tank for a '79 RANCHERO.My straps were shot so I used plumbers tape(the metal strap in a roll that has holes in it)(I'd like a better Idea maybe they make new ones for a '79 the tank is a little bigger).Then I used a sending unit for a Thunderbird.A Thunderbird and a RANCHERO tank in '79 is the same.I had a pipe put on the filler hole of the tank so I could use the rubber hose to the other end of the fill pipe.If I did it again I would have used the filler pipe off the T-bird.I got the sending unit from my buddy at his salvage yard.I would have used the tank but I bought A new one.It also has a extra vent on the top,I'm not into fuel injection but maybe it helps.Hope this helps.Good luck.
