Many repop tanks available for the '65, but all say they will NOT fit the Ranchero.

I thought I read somewhere that the Ranchero and wagon use a regular Falcon tank, mounted upside down.

Does anyone know the actual physical differences between the two tanks, if any ??

Thanks in advance,
Mike

NO the car tank will not work. It has to be a tank from a Ranchero or wagon.
Understood, Earl, thanks.

I see (from ebay ad photos) that the filler neck and outlet are in different locations on the wagon/Ranchero tank.

I found an NOS tank ($650!) and also an ad for a 1962-63 Falcon wagon tank that appears to have the openings in the same location as the '65 tank.

Would the 62-63 tank fit my '65? If the only difference is tank capacity, I'm okay with the smaller tank.

Thanks for the help!

Yes it should fit . Looking at my manual it shows the sending unit being in a diffrent place for the 6 cyl tank verses the V8 tank. I have also heard that the back tank from a ford truck ( with 2 tanks) late 70's/early 80's I think can be made to work but like I said I have heard this I don't know for a fact it will .
