Looking for a 1947/1948 Chevy fuel tank

I am restoring a 1948 Chevy 5 window pick-up. This truck belonged to my Grand Father and has been in the barn since 1976. This is my second restoral. The first was a 1965 GTO. It took me 5 years to complete. My question is where can I find a fuel tank that mount under the bed on the right side, in front of the axle. The fuel tank was only used in 1947 & 1948

You could do something like I'm doing and put a tank from a Chevy Astro in your ride. All kinds of tanks will fit with minor modifications, unless you are doing a complete resto, not a rod.
