I'm putting together a 66 with the leaf springs moved inboard so I can't use a stock tank.
It is getting an L33 with the factory EFI.
I was planning on using a fuel cell and external pump, but most of the stuff that I read here and elsewhere suggests that this isn't the best idea.
In one of Burke's threads, I found reference to Tanks Inc.
I know it's kind of ugly, but have been considering using this tank and their pump.

The other option would be the cell with the Tanks Inc pump kit with the tray mounted through the top like their instructions show for a stock tank.
Disadvantage to this is no baffles in tank.

Any input would be appreciated.

I'd have to measure, but I think the outer edge of the front of the spring is about 1-1.5 inches inboard of the frame rail.

Make your own ... Run a search on " custom 19 gal fuel tank" - its my build thread for what I did.

As you are going smaller in size ( I'm assuming)

You can cut a channel from front to back however wide you need to make it, while open - weld in some baffles , then weld the two halves back together.. I'd post s link to the thread but I do not know how to do that from my phone ..
