1972 Datsun 510 gas tank

Post by mpdcop » 24 Oct 2011 13:00

Does anyone know where I would be able to buy a new Datsun 510 gas tank. I was looking into just having the old one cleaned and re-sealed, but it will cost about 300$..I figured I could get a new one for that. thanks

You can't, unless someone has one stored in a garage.

Best bet is to find a used one in better condition and seal that.

Check out this thread...
if you just need the tank that's great, I could use the upper vent tank.
PM me if this works for you.
