Looking for a gas tank for a 1961 190SL

I am looking for a gas tank for a 1961 190SL. I have found two, but they are $900 each. If anyone knows of a better deal, please respond.

Thanks

Have you tried the International 190SL Group?

I have a 67 230, and my tank was aweful, but had no holes. So I took the whole tank to a radiatar repair shop and had it soaked in an acid bath. Came out great and it only cost me about $120.


If its rusted through, then the best of luck to you.

Just my $.02

Check with J. Wiley Imports, Memphis, TN. Also you might check with Bud's Benz, Douglasville, GA. They might know of one at a resonable cost.
