    I found this drop tank many years ago. Uncovered it during some cleanup. I never knew what it fit or who to ask. I know the question will be answered before you read the it. What the heck is it from? About 91" long, 25" at it's widest. Flange is about 1/2'.
    I think it would be too small for a V-8 but a 4 cyl, or maybe a 2 or 3 wheel tank would be ok.

    Maybe you should ask over on landracing.com where all the salt racers hang out.
