I’ve been looking online for a fuel tank for my 62 Bel Air and I am puzzled by the prices. They are all relatively cheap but they vary from $75 to $160. These are galvanized not stainless. Anybody know what’s up with this?

The cheap/cheaper tanks are "not galvanized and not plated""-- they are painted silver, or gray primer -and probably made overseas.....

The correct good 1961 to 1964 tank is made by Spectra in Canada and comes zinc plated (never rust...).
I would "not" use anything but a Spectra Premium tank.
My Spectra tanks look like they are new and they are 10/15 years old..

If they won't tell you who makes the tank and if they are painted -do not buy from them.
Stainless tanks are over $ 200.

Spectra tanks Like this tank: uel-Gas-...

or this one 718...

What Paul said- Rockauto sell these tanks and specify one from Spectra Premium.
