Hello Impala guys, I’m hcortez19 out of Bell, California. Just to be exact. This car was jus sitting before I bought it and it came with a bunch of trouble that I’m fixing one at a time. This week my gas tank needs replacing. I can’t find a fuel tank for a 72 but I can for a73. Do any of you guys know if I can use that fuel tank?

Welcome to the Team!

Rock Auto has a new one:

1972 CHEVROLET IMPALA 6.6L 400cid V8 Fuel Tank Lock Ring | RockAuto

Here is another:

As to using a used one out of a '73 yes it should fit. 1971-'76 is basically the same car.

The original '71 and '72 Passenger car Tanks are different than the newer ones. I would question how that or any aftermarket Tank would work before buying one.

I sold an original '72 Tank to an outfit for them to reproduce them, but I haven't heard if it is ready for market yet.
