Just a dozen years ago, restoring a Mopar was an almost impossible task unless you had direct access to a salvage yard or a couple of intact donor cars. Yet, now thanks to officially licensed Authentic Mopar Restoration manufacturers like Classic Industries, getting your classic back together and in running condition is amazingly simple!
Earlier today, Classic Industries announced the addition of its OER-authorized stainless steel fuel tanks for all A, B and E-Body Mopars, you can not only have a factory-correct tank beneath your trunk pan, but have it made from a superior material as well! Stamped stainless not only provides superior durability and resistance to the elements, but will retain its gleam far better than OE.
Here’s the original press release:
