MOPARPRO dropped the eBay price by $50 from when it was first listed early this AM on eBay. Hopefully for those that need one MOPAR will list it on their website for direct purchase. In theory they could drop the price closer to $600 or so and make the same as what they will net on eBay after those money changers take there 13% on the Tank + shipping fee. This is one of their highest $ tanks. Most of what they offer are in the $350-$550 price range.

Update: Mike the owner of MOPARPRO answered a question of mine over on Facebook. Basically, by-passing eBay if and call him direct he can go $650 + shipping.

New to the Forum, I take it these are a good option to replace the tank in a '68 2000?

Yes this is the correct version for your car.

Do you think this is a fair price? $650 is a lot for me to spend on a gas tank that is a first run and unproven. Has anyone ordered this yet? Does anyone plan to?

Nope. $500 total. Pump, pickup tray from a Honda tank, sending unit, etc. But I did all the work except for the sealing. It’s been great so far, 15 years in service and no issues.

Turns out a solid brass Ferrari tank is cheaper than this option. 😉

Seriously though, unless you're going for a proper restoration, there are likely better options. Granted I did it myself, but I built an aluminum tank with pump, fittings, the whole package for ~$385 USD.
