Mounting looks "mazda - like" (???) but most of thier tanks appear to lay flat.

Flip that tank around and show us the other side.

OK ... still "buffaloed" on this one, but here's another couple of observations to make note of...

I would have thought that the largest (3/8"? curved) tube would have been the fuel outlet line, but it's not. It's using a dinky 1/4" (it looks like ... the long one with the screen at the end of it) tube as the fuel line.

This further reinforces my "4-banger import" theory. I would have some serious concerns regarding the ability of this setup to supply fuel to a V8, at least without having to modify it.

The rectangular nitrophyl float at the end of the sending unit doesn't look like 60's vintage to me either. Almost everything (domestic at least) used to use a cylindrical brass float in that era ... right?

Still haven't found any sign of a manufacturer name anywhere?

I have the same tank

I have the same tank and fuel sending unit. Mine is out of a 1940 Chevy Coupe and I am sure it is not original. Ere you successful in identifying the manufacturer???
