Gilson made the ford YT series back around that time, so that might be one more angle to find the tank. I am not saying it will fit , only something to check out. 

As for posting your phone number and other info, be prepared for a major onslaught of spam and telemarketers from the bots scanning the net for phone numbers

If yours is the steel tank with 2 metal straps, I have a good one. It's yours for the shipping, just let me know.
