    I've had an old Eelco tank I bought at a swap meet many years ago for my gasser project. But my Austin is so tiny that even a 2 gal. tank looks huge in front of the grille, so didn't use it. Then tried mocking it up on a couple others I built over the years, and still didn't look right to me. Just tried again on my '39 Chev coupe, and didn't like it again. So back into storage to sit until maybe something shows up that it might look correct on?

    Moon tanks are bad ass. I will be installing a Moon puke tank in my turbocharged Corvair Monza.

    Hello,

    Going back in history of Lion’s Dragstrip, there were plenty of well built competition cars to give the spectators their money’s worth during the weekend shows. Jack Ewell was associated with Mickey Thompson’s Shop in the Westside of Long Beach. His early history is well documented and as the times moved on, so did the builds and power.

    Jack Ewell, Jim Kambor, Bill Stecker built the original in 1961 and since then, those FED race cars were pushed aside for the rear engine monsters. So, the glory of those days belongs to the Nitro Revival group and their fascinating events for the cackle cars. The evolution from 1960 to the present day reconstruction is amazing.

    The Moon Tank was an integral part of most race cars. After the ruling in mid 1960 to move the Moon Tanks out of the cabin of race cars and into the trunk or behind the grill, in the FED race cars, some took on the sleek spaces wherever it was possible.

    In the total restoration, even the custom Moon Tank was put in place like the original from 1961.

    The fuel tank was custom built by Moon to match 1962 photos exactly. Ballast box hand built as well.
