Oh boy, ok I have a 79 Grand marquis 351. What measurements do you need. I believe it is 16gal. Better stick to private messages, this isnt really a galaxie thing at all.
1979 did not have EFI.On 2006-04-07 18:53, bluelightning302 wrote:
im missing the boat here i think,whats the significance of all this other than making it easier to convert to EFI?
Why? Price! I just checked Dearborn's site and they don't even stock a '65 tank. If they did, I'd hate to see the price. But one can buy a mid '80s Vic tank for $25 at the boneyard that's not rusted. In fact, I just scrapped one from an '84 Grand Monkey that was clean as a ribbon. So it holds 16 gallons....big deal, so you stop for gas a bit more often. This disparity in cost is precisely when I bought a Mustang gas tank that holds 15 gallons in my '64 Custom. Rather than pay an exoribant amount of money for a 20 gal. '64 tank, I have a brand new tank for under $100. Besides, after 150 miles or so, I need a bottle of pop, to stretch my legs and use the ladies room anyway...On 2006-04-09 19:45, farmallmta wrote:
Not at all sure I see the point of eliminating a '65's 20 gallon tank (which itself is too darned small) for an even smaller 16 gallon tank! May I suggest a '66 Ford or Mercury full size tank, which holds 25 gallons or a new '67 which holds 24.5 gallons? New from Dearborn, I believe.
Good point, Bill. You know, it's been years since I've had a flat or even a leak in a tire, so I'm thinking of jetisonning the spare, raising that area of the trunk floor for a bigger gas tank in place of the '66 I've got now. 40 gallons would be about right.On 2006-04-17 05:15, BillBallinger wrote:
I am not sure you can get much more tank under there without doing some surgery to the trunk. If you get in a rear end collision its already a hazardous condition as it is.
