Hi Gas tanks for the 72 models are not reproduced so I would say to use Mavaholics Idea and use the mustang one. He has a detailed instructions posted and it looks like it would be relatively easy modifications. Also frees up space for twin exhaust and as a bonus you can get it with a drain plug.
to the board

Personally, I would convert to mustang tank. But if you want to stick with stock, I have a couple of good ones. Email me if interested.

Thanks for the help. Where can I find these instructions. I am new to this website and am not sure I am using it right to answer you back.
Thanks again.

I do not have a maverick. I work at a auto parts store and am looking for more information about the mustang gas tank install. This is for a 1972 maverick customer. Could not open the link by mavaholic on the installation of the tank. Any help would be great.

Just order them a Spectra Preminum F30, it's for a 76 Mavericks and fits with less work.

Yup! Also get them a set of 76 gas tank straps. Parts stores carry them as well.
