Will a gas tank from a '67 Mustang bolt into a '64 Comet?

Okay, moral dilema here. There is a lady who needs a tank for her son. A guy told her that the tank out of the '67-'68 Mustang would work. The interchange manuals say no. It's obviously up to the lady who to believe. I have told her it won't work, but she isn't totally sold on that due to the other guy. What should I do? Or better yet what would you guys do? Depending on your answers, what is a used tank worth?

Well, when an interchange manual says something doesn't work, they don't mention why they don't work. It could be something stupid like the tank being a bolt-in vs a strap mounted {which you could adapt to fit} or as far off as rear fill vs side fill {which you can't adapt}.

If I were in your place, I guess I would tell her that you don't believe it will fit, but if she insists on buying it, you'll sell it to her with the understanding that if it doesn't fit, it's her's to resell on her own, because it's not worth it for you to handle it twice. {To her and back from her}

A used tank is probably only worth something like $50 at most, since a new reproduction is only about $100. I usually go by used parts in good condition being worth 1/2 the cost of new ones unless they are rare.
