I got my replacement as a used S-car tank from the Pacific Northwest, where
there is little rust.  Scott Mockry had it.  I'd think wreckers in any
non-rustbelt area would be a good source.

Be aware that the innards of the S-car tanks differ slightly from those of
the 200q20v.  I posted a note that should be in about what I
had to do to put my 200's pump in the S-car tank.

Who's the refurbisher?  I've kept my old tank with the idea of fixing it
when I need to replace the tank in one of our V8s.
