1967 Lemans Gas Tank replacement

Hi,
I have a 1967 pontiac lemans 326 that i will need to replace the gas tank due to i believe is rust inside and all of the old gas has turned into varnish.
My question is I want a tank that is an exact replacement such as size and appearance and also quality. Can anyone recommend a tank they have used and meets all of my requirements?
I've looked at several sellers but i'm unsure who really sells the best.

Thanks,

Denny,
I don't know about quality, but I bought my new one from Ames.
I haven't put it in yet, I'm into a frame off resto right now.
I would shop around for sure.

Check out Muscle Car Parts-GM Auto Parts-Camaro Z28- Pontiac Judge GTO Parts-Firebird-Oldsmobile-Restoration Parts-Classic cars-Parts Place Inc --- my personal experience is that they tend to be less expensive, and I've bought parts on occasion from other sources that actually came from them. I haven't used one of their tanks though so I've got no first-hand experience with fit or quality.

Did you comapre the tank with your existing one? I've heard that some of the reproductions don't have the ribs on the side.

MAKE SURE you get one with the damn filler neck. that sucked for me. I got my tank from year one (no complaints about the tank other than it not having a filler neck)
