Thanks DadTruck,
Yes it appears for proper filler tube alignment some modification to tank or trunk pan is necessary. I'm sure I've seen threads where people said this swap works with strap relocation? Maybe the Tanks Inc tank has slightly different geometry, but still fits 63-66, but is somewhat different than 63-66 factory tank? Unless someone wiser chimes in, I will sadly say that this is not a direct replacement.

Maybe I misspoke, but Tanks Inc does not have an alternate tank for this application. They wanted me to let them know how it fit in the 62.

Maybe the reproduction 63 66 fit with grommet type neck tank seal and strap relocation?

As I mentioned above ours (1965) fit well except for where the filler neck comes through the floor. The strap and fitment to the wheel well was good.
