I have a tank but it is smashed pretty bad. It's in there, I got the sending unit to work so I will be using it, a little short on capacity though.

How about brakes, is the brake hardware still there on the 59? It would have Wagner brakes (unlike the 60 that had Bendix) the top of the shoes are flat where they meet a triangle shaped piece unlike the Bendix that have a rounded tip and meet a round pin on the backing plate. If the 59 has self adjusters I would like to have the hardware.
