A stock 32 gas tank will mount in the stock spot, under the bed, in a 32 pick-up. There is one cross brace that has to be notched, and it's a pretty big notch, to clear the sender/pickup.
I use the stock filler, and put an access door in the bed floor above it. And, you can't see it from behind, and it might be a little safer in a rear end crash because you've got a foot and a half of bed hanging out behind it.
I've run my hot rod pick-up many miles this way.

Charlie, it probably dawned on you long ago that you are blessed, as am I. We have wives that support us in this old Ford hobby, regardless! And....those smaller hands sure come in handy at times!!

wives are the greatest...
all long time ago my wife and I were discussing what king of tires to buy.
My wife added, I think you should get Radio tires.
I looked at her and answered, AM or FM?

David,
If I understand the truck tank design, the venting is through the fuel sender which installs from the bottom of the gas tank?

The My sedan fuel tank vents from the top of the tank.

Passenger car tanks are a whole different animal... in comparison to a 1932 Pickup tank

C-5 Galaxy has a fuel tank inerting system in which the ullage area is saturated with nitrogen. Also, as the fuel enters the tank, it is "swirled" causing it to release dissolved oxygen which would otherwise be released as pressure in the tank drops as the airplane climbs. I think I will take my zippo and peer into the neck to see if my 39 pickup has this same system.
