Fuel Tank Kit with Drain Plug for 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1968 Mustangs.

Install this brand new 16 gallon fuel tank kit in your 1965-1968 Mustang today and rest easy knowing that the fuel you just purchased won’t be leaking out. This kit is a direct replacement for the damaged, rusted stock fuel tank with the correct 16 gallon capacity tank. This fuel tank is coated to prevent rust and corrosion from occurring offering years of use. This kit will save you time and money.

Kit Includes:
- Fuel Tank with Drain
- Fuel Sending Unit with Gasket
- Locking Ring
- Filler Pipe Hose
- Filler Pipe Gasket
- Fuel Tank Mounting Hardware
- Fuel Tank Filler Screws

This fuel tank is a direct replacement for all 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1968 Mustangs, using the factory mounting holes. The tank is made using original dimensions, measuring 32-5/8" x 24 1/2" x 7", with the correct 16-gallon capacity. This tank has a drain plug for easy drainage.

This brand new fuel tank kit comes with a sending unit that is specific for the 16-gallon fuel tank allowing for accurate fuel level gauge operation. The fuel sending unit features a stainless steel construction with a 3/8" outlet tube. A retaining ring, O-ring gasket and filter are included.

Connecting the original fuel filler pipe to the 16 Gallon Fuel Tank, is a durable, 4" long fuel tank filler hose that is made from flexible, hard rubber. Replacing this hose is always recommended when installing a new fuel tank.

*Filer pipe is sold separately.

The best part about this fuel tank kit is the fact that everything bolts up to the factory locations using original hardware. If you don't have original hardware to use, a fuel tank mounting hardware kit is included, which comes with all the necessary mounting hardware required to drop in the new fuel tank and secure it.

Tech Tip: if you install two gaskets on the filler pipe, it helps to move the gas cap away from the tail light panel which helps to keep the gas cap from scratching the paint when it is twisted during opening and closing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fuel Tank Kit!!!.... I Bought this Fuel Tank Kit for My....64.5 Coupe, What I Liked About this Kit was the Fact that it Came With Everything Needed to Install it..... The Install was Straight Forward, and after Getting Everything Installed, I Dropped-in a Couple of Gallons of Fuel to Check and See if there was Any Leaks, and to My Surprise there was....I Though it was Because I Did Not Tighten Down the Hose Clamps, But When I Looked Underneath, the Leak was Right where the Sending Unit Goes into the Tank, on the Outer Diameter of the Metal Ring that the Locking Ring Locks into..... So I Called CJ's....and Told the Rep. What Happen Regarding the Tank Leaking and He Then Informed Me that He Would Send Out a "New" Replacement Fuel Tank, that at No Charge to Me.... The New Tank Arrived a Few Days Later and I Got it Installed with No Issues/Problems, Bottom-Line.....the Customer Service I Received from CJ's Regarding this Issue, Was Excellent!!!....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Includes about everything! Bought this to replace my old cracked tank on a 65 coupe. Good fit. The galvan coating is not heavy so will be sure to give a shot of paint after a good cleaning on the underside of the tank.
