Gas Tank Identification

The tank with the short filler and vent is from a 1951 senior Henney-Packard but can anyone identify the other tank? It is identical in every way other than having a longer filler and vent.

Also, the senders appear interchangeable (both have 6-screw mounting on the same bolt circle) but are different in appearance. Are they simply made by different manufacturers or do they function differently? I know, the photo is not much to go on but I thought someone might recognize them by external appearance.

Anyone? I'm thinking it might be a 1948 and maybe a Henney but I need some confirmation.

The one with the short neck almost looks modified to me. The vent line looks like it is copper??

Found a picture from a 1946 Clipper in the car for sale part of this website.

PTV, it does look like a 46-47 tank if you cut off the fill neck and whistle pipe.

Itís the one with the longer neck that Iím trying to identify. The one with the stubby neck is from a 1951 Henney-Packard and I once had a 1948 Henney but never pulled its tank although I did get some parts from an identical one at a local vintage car parts house. I donít recall getting the tank, though, and I never had a 1946 or 1947 so Iím beginning to think that maybe the tank was inside one of my cars when I bought it!
