  • 73 Challenger gas fill tube

    Hello All -

    I've searched hi and low for a gas fill tube for my 73 Challenger, it's missing and I'm in need of one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Excuse my ignorance, but is this the same this as a fuel filler neck?

        I wouldn't think of something like this to be that hard to find.

            please look first at our banner advertisor, othewise you can go to your local mom and pop parts store. If you have the ID measurement, they sell by the foot hopefully and get you on your way for $6 or less. Never mind me for offering this advice if you HAVE TO HAVE Mopar numbers on it like the last guy that caused a ruckus and finally opened his trunk and found a brand new one in original plastic even after he ignored all the help I tried to offer. NO, I'm not mentioning names, but WHY come here and ask for help just to diss the help you get?

                Yeah, you don't want to use a rubber hose as a replacement for that. Anything that's a bit heavy in the trunk that might move could easily take out a rubber hose.....

                      ??? Are you familiar with the fill tube on a Challenger? It's pretty long (probably about 30") and made of steel and goes through the trunk from the quarter panel to the tank and it needs to be steel, especially if you're going to put anything in the trunk. Also, the stock fill tube has the flange on the end that bolts to the quarter panel which also has the fit for the gas cap to screw onto. IMO, even though it may not be the quickest way to fix the problem, the best and easiest way to fix this is to have the stock fill tube in place. I've done a lot of 'shade tree' work on many cars over the years and I believe this one needs to be done as the way it came from the factory....

                        a few

                        yes DJ I HAVE fixed a few too, my own and others too. I'm aware of the angles and have had success with my method as well, not only on MOPAR but other makes and models too. The only reason I can see to fret about it is as a 100% collector wanting the original part number on it.
                        I'm done commenting on this subject, I offered a solution, a simple solution, and others made it into some kinda big deal, it was a SIMPLE fix!

                            This is a part I'd hit a Chrysler-specific parter up for like Clay. By the time you get it pulled, shipped, and picked up it'd be less than new and probably better after some good cleaning.
