Good evening
I have a 67 satellite with a leaky fuel tank my question is are there any other b bodies with the same tank
That will fit my 67 a mate of mine says
A 68 charger tank will fit or indeed any b body of the same vintage
Is this the case please ?

No a 1968 Charger gas tank will not fit a 1967 Satellite. Any one of these gas tanks listed below will fit a 1967 Satellite.

1966-67 Dodge Charger, Coronet,
1966-67 Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite, GTX

There are new tanks available. Buy a kit with rubber elbows, yours are probably rock hard. if you buy a new pickup/sending unit use your old lock ring if its ok.

If "uk" is United Kingdom, then I suggest you see if you can repair your existing fuel tank. A good radiator shop should be able to weld it up for you. If it can't be fixed, then just get a new reproduction one if you have to.

66/67 tanks the same. As Purple said, soldered if the hole are small. If tank is cruddy on inside they make sealer to cover up the crud.
