Relocate Your Truck’s Fuel Tank For Safety And Added Storage

Installing a rear-mounted fuel tank to your classic truck is a great idea. Images courtesy Speedway Motors.

When early General Motors trucks were built, the engineers didn’t consider safety as much as they do now. How do we know that? Just look where they mounted the fuel tank — behind the driver’s seat. Talk about a way to ruin someone’s day.

Enthusiasts are an enterprising bunch, and eventually found ways to relocate a fuel tank to the rear of the truck. The tank might not have been designed for the application, but they made it work. Now, there is no need to “make something work” as Speedway Motors has what’s needed.

According to the company’s latest blog entry in The Toolbox, you can order a complete tank for carbureted and EFI applications. According to Speedway, both versions of these tanks are currently available for ’48-’60 Ford trucks’47-’53 Chevy trucks’55-’59 Chevy trucks, and ’63-’72 Chevy trucks. For you 1973 through ’87 square body guys, there’s also a new version in the works.

So, what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time you relocated that dangerous fuel tank to the rear of your truck? What’s more, you will even gain some valuable storage space behind your seat for tools and whatnot by doing so.
