MARTINSR I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, it was a different tank in 47-48, completely different shape.

Good idea. I'll have to measure to see if my inside tank will fit. The tank is still good.

MARTINSR I ran a 1 inch square tubing across the frame in front of the tank and ran straps under it to the rear crossmember. The filler was in a door I made using a hinge from a 60s Chevy in the fender.

Thanks for the reply Brian, Did you mount the tank to the frame or use straps? Also where did you put the filler tube?

gas tank for 50 chevy truck

Hi:
I want to install an after market gas tank in my 50 chevy truck but I have a rear crossbar shock support that is in the way for most tanks. Does anyone know what might work? Thanks
