WHILE THE ENGINEERS AT CHEVY NORMALLY HAVE OUR RESPECT AND ADMIRATION, THE GUY WHO THOUGHT THAT PUTTING THE FUEL TANK IN THE CAB WAS A GOOD IDEA SHOULD BE SMACKED UPSIDE THE HEAD.  AS MUCH AS WE LIKE TO SNIFF GAS FUMES, IT'S THE CHANCE OF IMMOLATION THAT HAS US WORRIED.
     Luckily, the folks at Early Classic Enterprises have taken the initiative and produced this stainless steel tank that is designed to sit between the rear frame rails.  Early Classic offers the highest quality, American-made tank that carries a full 23 gallons of high test.
     The tank is constructed from heavy 14-gauge stainless steel and is much less prone to tearing, cracking and punctures than aluminum.  Another plus of the Early Classic unit is that the tank is engineered to accept an in-tank fuel pump for fuel-injected applications or run with a factory external pump.  It features internal baffling and includes an electric sending unit, as well as all necessary mounting hardware.
     Early Classic Enterprises is based in Fresno, California, and is owned and operated by Dave Clark.  Since its opening in 1993, Clark has specialized in parts for the '60-'72 Chevy and GMC trucks.  In that time, he has turned Early Classic into one of the nation's premier manufacturers and distributors for parts for lovers of classic Chevys.  Be they suspension, body or specialty, chances are Early Classic has the part you want.
