The gas tank for an indented firewall does not have a gas line that runs through the passenger compartment to the firewall. The indented firewall gas tank outlet matches the hole on the firewall and the gas shut off valve screws into the gas tank on the engine side of the firewall.

I used photo shop and lightened the photo of the under tank connection. There may not be a valve on the gas line but it is a non indented fire wall gas tank.

I say good luck getting the price!
They will NEVER get that price on Ebay.
(that would be an easy $10000 profit!)

No one has mentioned the non-side bowl carburetor.
Indented firewall car should have side bowl carburetor.

The steering column support bracket I believe should be mounted to the dash not the fuel tank

on post 19 pics, that fan looks close to the radiator... My '31 indented firewall only has one fuel shutoff on the engine side of the firewall... Like everything else, buyer beware..

I haven't had any experience with an indented firewall A but I learned something new today...Thanks...

Any comments from the experts??

see the attached photos
Maybe they didnít want to exit the vehicle and raise the hood to shut off the gas but wanted the engine compartment original looking.

Probably. I wish it was restored to originality as it was supposedly owned by a bakery (see last photo).

Read post # 19 The gas tank for an indented firewall does not have a gas line that runs through the passenger compartment to the firewall. The indented firewall gas tank outlet matches the hole on the firewall and the gas shut off valve screws into the gas tank on the engine side of the firewall.

read post # 22 I used photo shop and lightened the photo of the under tank connection. There may not be a valve on the gas line but it is a non indented fire wall gas tank.
