    Can anyone out there help? Turns out the gas tank for my wagon is specific for this year only. I have tried everywhere to find one with no avail. My old one is non repairable. To have a custom one made is to astronomical to afford.

    Did you try Autozone? Auto parts places don't often get it right when it comes to wagons and will claim that a part will fit a wagon when it actually will fit only the sedan version of the car, but Autozone does show a tank for a '77 LTD II wagon.

    Does the tank shown look anything like yours?

    The tank will be a side-install, because of the third seat well in back. The one pictured is for either a sedan or Ranchero, as it looks like my '79's tank.

    Call Spectra and ask them. Parts pictures are not always accurate.

    Talking to a live person will be necessary, as all the times I have put in 1977 LTD II wagon (or 1977 Mercury Cougar Villager, which is the same under the skin), and the results never indicates any station wagon. I've even went through all 1477 entries on gastanks.com, and nothing for an intermediate wagon.

    You could also order it from Autozone ship to store open it in the store and immediately return it if its not correct.
