You’ll be a life saver Colin. Let me know how much you want for it, I can pay via BACS or PayPal. If you are not far from Fred he may be prepared to do the shipping, he’s got some other stuff he’s sending me shortly or I can arrange collection, whatever is easiest for you :)

OK Adrian,

I'm away this weekend but will try to get some pictures up on Monday to make sure it's the right one.

Thanks Colin, I've almost got this Magnum convertible sorted and don't want it going up in smoke due to a leaky fuel tank.

There are 2 different 12 gallon tanks. The early one, the same as FD Victor, has the vent at the front and the later Magnum specific tank has the vent at the rear. Early ones can be used on later cars with the use of a long rubber vent tube, front to back.

This is an early 12 gallon tank with the vent at the front. It is in very good rot free condition. Here are some pictures





There is evidence of a repair to one corner -

The tank appears to be rot free and is excellent inside





It's now at Fredshed for delivery with any other parts ordered from Club Spares. I'm asking £70.

Thanks

Colin, want to provide payment details in private or I just send to Fred?

I’ll take it, the colour matches too!
