Gas tank

Can a stock 1929 ford gas tank be used with a corvette engine?
I'm trying to use a carter P4070 electric pump mounted near
the stock corvette fuel pump area.
Gas tank is above the engine.

It probably can ....but you're going to have issues with the dist. hitting the firewall necessitating the engine being moved forward too much and then you'll have issues with the fan/water pump hitting the radiator. A lot easier, although more costly is to remove the stock gas tank (which also opens up the area under the dash) and install saddle tanks or a tank in the rear. Now you have room to notch the stock firewall or to install an after market unit that is already set up for a sbc.
