Has anyone tried a carbed 80\'s Grand Marquis fuel tank for fit?

The might have been CFI too. They are really cheap, I found a 20 gal station wagon one new online for $49. The catch is its $79 for shipping, but it opens up some ideas.

If anyone has a '79-'83 Crown Vic or Grand Marquis, could you do some measuring?

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.

Just take some measurments off your 65's tank (width, hieght and length) and then measure your tank (same as 65) on the GM. See if a light turns on in your head.

For those who are interested (and who's eyes pop out of their sockets after seeing the pic below) it sure looks simular to the 65 tank!

im missing the boat here i think,whats the significance of all this other than making it easier to convert to EFI?
1979 did not have EFI.

And the tank above is for a 2BBL.

Finding a replacment gas tank is not that easy. Very significant if someone tries one on a 65-68.

Our tank is out of our 65. If anyone is interested I can take all measurments needed next weekend if they want? A heads up if you will.

Jeff, The sending unit is off to the side more on the 84 2 door.
Is yours a 4 door?
