unless it is in super concourse original as new show condition, i doubt that a different fuel tank will have much affect on the cars value.

do you have any pics of the wagon.

I have leaks in my tank , found them when I was cleaning up the tank , some kind of epoxy filler from existing repairs I guess....Im thinking a new metal tank unless the plastic is a better choice for durability ...

I'm sticking with metal. I figure a welded repair if done right will last forever while plastic could be challenging. If you are just using as a daily driver and not doing too much off road it wont really make much difference which type of tank you get.
