Fuel tank or equivalent for 1977 wagon

Hi All, picked up my first pinto today, it's looking like a new gas tank would be in my near future, who sells the cheapest one out there? Thanks

Hmmm, now I'm curious is this only for a 77 wagon you can't get a new tank???, there's a brand new one on mine and it's a perfect fit..

Well, it was on the car when I got it and I asked the guy about it and all he said was the "mechanic shop" did it, apparently this car sat for a long time. I'll take a pic of it, maybe it's for something else and it just happens to fit??..
