I’m looking for a serviceable fuel tank for my 1956 car. Cap and fill neck would be great too!

Will a series 2 tank work for you? I have a couple extra.

If you can’t find a used one, I have a friend who makes new ones from Stainless.

I may be interested in a stainless tank. Do you know what cost is or can you put me in touch with him please.

He also makes new body panels, frames, and bulkheads. He has original LR tooling from the 50s. His family was a supplier to LR in Asia from the 50s-70s.

Cool! I’m guessing you met him when you drove to Singapore?

Yep. He’s in Bangkok.

You can find him as “PAT.Garage” on facebook.

Cheers

Hi Ray,
Have you been able to get a quote from your friend about these SS tanks? My tank is beyond repair.
