32 tank on 31 tudor
 
dont know if this question is in correct category, but here goes. does anyone have any info or pics of a 32 gastank on a 31 tudor? I am trying to mount one on my tudor, but am not crazy about the look. I set it in place and used the indents in the tank as a guide, it just seems to stick out further than I like. sorry I am not good with posting pics. The tank cant be pushed in further cuz it will hit my coilovers.
I have a tank to mount behind rear seat if needed, but had my heart set on the 32 tank. the car will have fenders and is being done like an old school hotrod. Black primer, flathead v-8, slight rake, straight axel. Thanks for any help. Rick

I looked into this back when I was building my '31 Tudor. The '32 body has the indentation to allow the tank to tuck up under the body.

There used to be a faux '32 tank that was made for Model A's, best of both world's. Check this link out: http://www.tanksinc.com/p_view_image...conversion.gif

Got any photo's of your in-progress set-up?

I will try to post some pics. I have to get help doing it. I have a mental block when it comes to computers.

'32 Fuel tank on Model A

Here's a photo of my '29 Model A Tudor. The tank came as a kit including brackets to attach it to the Model A stock frame. However, they had to be really modified to work. Looked great when done though. I had to bend the tank lip in the rear to clear my coilovers also. Hope this helps.

Not a Tudor, but the chassis mod is the exactly the same, regardless of the model. Apologize for them not being in order, but the site does that occasionally with Photobucket attachments

This, below, is with the chassis upside down for final welding

A fairly easy job on a bare chassis (mine is a TCI repro) but you do need patience, fab skills and time as well as ALL of the materials on hand before you start work. On my car, didn't use a 'kit' but did my own design
