1957 Pathfinder gas tank


The tank in my 57 isn't leaking but needs a new sending unit for fuel gauge. Will the tank from a 57 chevy fit. Looking at what Ecklers offers and wondering on complete change of tank or which sending unit would fit, if any. confuse

I have heard good things about Spectre. They are a Canadian company with many distributors throughout the Provinces.

You may need to contact them directly.

Plus one on Spectra. I have used a few of their tanks, always a perfect fit and appear just like the original. I also sell their products at my job and have been very happy with them.

The gas tank is identical to a 57 Chevy and so is the sending unit.  I put a stainless tank in my car when I had to pull it for the exact same reason you are, the sending unit stopped working.

I also replaced the straps when I had it apart.

What about the filler neck?

I'm about to replace my tank as well and when I look for 57 chev replacement, the filler neck show upper and lower but mine is only in one piece..Any idea?

Thanks

57 Pontiac's and Chevy's have different filler pipes. As far as i know no one repro's the Pontiac ones. You may want to try AMES PONTIAC in the U.S. for the 57 Pontiac filler pipe.
