Mustang Gas Tank - 1970 with no Drain Plug

There are a few brands of fuel tanks on the market, but the ones made in Canada are the only ones that you should consider for your Mustang. We handle these, and they are really nice.

Believe or not, the 1970 Mustang gas tanks did not come with drain plugs. If you have a super detailed, show car and want all of the correct details; we now have the correct 1970 Mustang fuel tank without the drain plug. We have gotten lots of phone calls about these, so we are happy to announce that they are now in stock. This tank is just a really nice "finishing touch" for your Boss 302, 428 Cobra Jet, Boss 429 or any 70 Mustang.

If you are not into the final details like that, we have gas tanks with the drain plugs too!

So any idea why the manufactuers (i.e. Ford) decided not to include a drain plug in the original piece? Seems kind of strange...

Honestly, I really don't know. Maybe it was a supplier issue or possibly a cost-cutting measure, but I'm just speculating.
