Late model fuel tank 140-160

Has anybody ever fitted a 1974 fuel tank in an earlier 140? I'm away from my cars and can't have a look if the trunk sheetmetal shape is very different.

The reason for this (probably silly) idea is simple. My 1973 tank is badly rusted at the seam and leaks. I tried a tank from a 1968 parts car, but the sender is different, so I don't have a working gauge. I've got a good 1974 tank from my rally car when I removed it to fit a fuel cell.

If the sheet metal is the same profile, I can easily plate over where the old tank hole is, cut out the required shape at the (car's) front of the trunk. The fuel plumbing should be trivial, although routing the filler pipes mightn't be. The key is that sheet metal profile.

Thoughts?
