There are atleast 2 different tanks available for that car. There are saddle tanks that mount between the side splash aprons and frame, depending on the frame that you are using, and a tank that mounts in the rear between the bumper brackets as the "32". I have the saddle tanks for my 31 Tudor. They came with filler necks that have screw on caps. You cut a hole in the aprons on both sides. They came with an electric valve to control the flow from each tank, and mounting straps. Can't think of where I got them from, but can check if you want that info. I am thinking it was Rock Valley, but can't be sure. If I remember correctly, they sell either plastic or metal tanks.

My 31 A coupe is kind of bobbed in the back and has shortened running boards-neither really a site for gasoline storage. I bought a 16 gallon universal tank made by Tanks, Inc to mount nicely in the trunk area. This tank often appears in their Streetrodder ad. When I called Tanks,Inc. a very unhelpful woman (unusual to be crabby from a midwestern company-unlike us Easterners) told me there'd be a 4 week wait-they didn't just have tanks lying around. So I got mine from Yogi's. In stock with the same price as the factory ($225), friendly service, fast delivery with reasonable shipping charges. I bought one of their sending units, too($25). It looks good and is well built. If you get one, remember the tank dimension doesn't include the 2" mounting flange on each side.

Talking gas tank

Thanks for the good information. I will get with Yogis for the tank in the trunk since I'm not using running boards. Thanks again guys.
