1939 Chevrolet 85 master gas tank

Hi guys, does anyone know what kind of doner car I could use for a gas tank. My options are limited due to me being in New Zealnd. The cars here are mainly Japanese and some British. I am looking for something with a larger fuel capacity than the original gas tank. Any thoughts?

I understand you are a long way from the USA ... but there is a company here that makes replacement tanks ... ( the one above ) for $219 US ...

[B] In the long run ... it may be more economical to just buy a new one and have everything fit right than spending $$$ on trying to make something work that is already older and used ... then cut and modified ...

Just my nickel ...

I put the tank that Duece showed you in my 39 Chevy.Fit in very well,and is a lot better than trying to mount in something that won't fit right.Your shipping is going to make it expensive.If you don't get something like this, I would look at fabricating a new one out of steel or aluminum to fit the space, instead of trying to use something else.

This is a bit off topic, but with the problems you fellows down under have getting after market parts, why doesn't Summit, Jegs, etc., open some stores over there? Dan
