Does anyone know of a good shop to send a fuel tank to to get repaired? Good amount of surface rust on the inside and has baffles so want to be sure to get it all out and sealed up nicely.

I don't know what they might charge, but Rock Auto has new ones from Canada for 160.00 and then no worries. I just bought one and they are awesome.

You can get a brand new one from Clark's for a couple of hundred bucks. I wouldn't waste the time on your 50 year old tank. Just my opinion.

He said the tank has baffles in it so it can not be a stock Corvair tank.

Hard to believe but Rock Auto has a listing for the tank you need for $111.79!

Will this fit? Price seems reasonable.

The spectra F57D is listed for your car. I have a 61 Galaxie that I put that tank in. It fit very well and I’m happy with it. I think I paid around $130 for it last year.

The car fuel tank is different then the station wagon tank. The car fills from the center while the station wagon fills from the side. Every tank that I've seen fills from the center and not the side.

My 65 Mercury Colony Park wagon had rust inside as well as thin spots on the bottom. I did the POR 15 tank kit on it and is holding up well so far.

Tank Renu cleans it out, coats it and bakes it. Franchise operations, maybe one near you?

The F57D tank is listed for a station wagon, but looking at a picture of the underneath of a 64 wagon it’s clear to see that the tank I suggested is incorrect. I wonder why it’s listed for a wagon everywhere? I had to modify the filler neck a little to work with my convertible so I figured that was the difference. Sorry for the confusion.

Don't know if either is still in business, you'll have to check. Used to be a shop in Bridgeport on U.S. 40, just west of the Conrail overpass. Had a bunch of U-Haul units last time I was past. Radiator shops used to boil out tanks, had good luck with Paul's Radiator, 1251 S. Tibbs, 317 244 5403.

Try Pro Strip Indy on Millersville Rd in Indy. I had my '60 Corvair tank dipped there and it came out like new and it was nasty. It did end up with a pinhole but a coating of red coat (O'reillys) sealed it. Its been perfect so far.
