68 F100 with spare gas tanks

I just got a 68 f100 Ranger shortbed.Great truck it has ps and factory ac but the thing that wonders me is that the truck has two spare gas tanks under the bed.It still has the one inside the cab and it works.Is these factory or custom made,all the lines are there but not sure if they work.Til now its the only 68 f100 that I've seen with spare gas tanks,and 2 of them.Can anyone tell me if they've seen one or had one like this.Or where I can get info to check if its original or custom.Thanks

Welcome to FTE.

It's difficult to tell from this angle! Please post some pics of the tanks and pics of the bedside(s) showing the fillers.

They are not custom made. Whoever originally bought the truck could have had the dealership add them or he could have added them himself later after he bought the truck. I have a 1968 F-100 with a 390 and I have 3 tanks with the selector switch on the floor next to the driver.

Both are aftermarket, not genuine Ford. Ford Dealers usually wouldn't install aftermarket fuel tanks because if something failed, they would have to pay for the replaced parts and the labor to install them out of their own pockets, as the Ford warranty does not apply for aftermarket parts. The quality of aftermarket tanks is another consideration.

More than likely either the dealer sent the truck out to have the tanks installed, or the orignal or a subsequent owner had them installed.

Here on the west coast, the Fey Bumper Co. was the largest installer of aftermarket fuel tanks for dealers and the general public alike.

1967: Ford introduced a 25 gallon auxillary fuel tank as a factory installed option for Styleside pickups. This tank fits on the inside of the left (drivers) side frame rail.

Inside the bed is a shield that protects the filler tube from possible cargo damage.

1967/69: The exposed fuel cap pokes thru the left quarter panel (bedside) above the scallop (bumpside) line, in front of the left rear wheel.

1970/72: The exposed fuel cap pokes thru the left quarter panel below the scallop line, in front of the left rear wheel.

Inside the cab, adjacent to the drivers side of the seat, is a manually operated fuel tank selector valve.

Under the dash, to the left of the steering column is a toggle switch mounted to a bracket. This switch changes the dash fuel gauge from the in-cab tank to the auxillary tank.

The switch bezel is marked: L FUEL TANK R
------------------------------------------
Is it factory A/C or dealer A/C? Two different types of A/C were offered for 1968/72 F100/350's. Both are "hang-on" units, as their bezels bolt to the bottom of the dash.

1) Factory installed integral A/C is combined with the heater. The A/C controls are located in the same panel as the heater controls.

There are two glove boxes. The A/C expansion valve mounts behind the dash glove box, so its liner is shorter. The other glove box is located in the A/C bezel.

2) Dealer installed economy A/C is not combined with the heater. The two A/C switches are located in the bezel.
