    Got my chassis donor and have all but the fuel tank. I’ve seen different ones for sale but before I choose one I need a little measurement help. If your TD has the VW gas tank sitting in the gas tank box what is┬áthe height from the top of the tank to the bottom of the trunk? Several VW tanks have a hump on the front of the tank and I want to be sure I get one that fits.

    Thanks for any help.

    I think the tank you’d need is 1960-67 Beetle/Ghia…but I’m not sure. These tanks have an integral filler neck/gas cap. You have to open the hood to fuel up.

    The ’68 up tanks use a body mounted filler door and neck.

    Thanks Pink. I found one @ CIP1.com and Mid America Motorworks. Their both just over $100. I could get one of eBay but I prefer new.
