This tank is for the 1938 to 1940 passenger cars and the 39-41 Ford pickups and you will need to drill for mounting as necessary.

The 38-40 Ford car tank number 91076064 accepts the standard 5 bolt mount aftermarket sending unit for the fuel gauge according to the manufacturer. From the photo it uses a right hand swing sender such as number 665385C for the 33-240 ohm gauges.

This tank (P/N 91076064) should mount in the stock location for a 1938-40 ford car without trimming the inner fenders. The majority if the tank is under the floor with the sending and pick-up on the top.
