I am searching for the correct tank, straps and sending unit for my 1948 suburban. Are they the same as the 1948 3100 truck? Please help. Or a link to pics of the right one.

Also the paint code for the interior brown please. Thanks

Mark

According to Jim Carter's website, the 47-48 1/2 ton pickups, 47-55 Panels and Suburbans use the same tank. Jim Carter's item #MEG149
Don't know the paint code, but it's somewhere here on the site. Or someone knows.

I used the reproduction tank from Jim Carters and it is a quality item. It fit my original straps perfectly. I recommend it. Start with a nice new tank to eliminate the worries of Debri in your fuel system.

As far as the gas tank straps you will have to find a set used, I have not seen them reproduction. Posting an parts wanted ad here and or a EBay search should yield results.

The interior paint code is a tough one because most paint systems change code numbers and before you know the code I give here that worked on my suburban three years might now come up purple in some other paint system. Shoot me a PM and I can try to help you with it, but look at my photo album first and see if you like my interior color.
