I believe it's the large tank from the V8 Gremlin/Hornet.  Not sure where
you'll find one, except from an AMC junkyard.

You can get some of the epoxy puddy at most auto parts store that will work
with gas.  So you could get some of this and work it in around the filler neck
and tank.

There is a place that will restore you tank, but they are expensive - 
like $500
or more depending on the amount of work required.

I haven't seen anyone reproducing the tanks, unless you take it to a metal
shop and have them make a 1 off.
