Default 1975 tank in 1969 corvette

Hi,

I've driven my 69 LS1 conversion for a few years with a wallbro 255lph pump dropped into the tank however I now need to upgrade the fuel system and would like a top fed solution. Does anyone know if a 1975 tank fits straight into my 1969 corvette?

Best regards,
Axel

The 1975 tank is unique in that it has a rubber bladder for the tank inside of a steel housing. Don't know if you could find one for sale in decent shape. The aftermarket has lots of fuel tank options, new.

Im thinking about a new one and just skipping the bladder in case I go that route. Does it fit in the 69?

There are EFI options on the aftermarket however havn't found any with a good built in sump and they are all pretty pricy...
