Obviously NOS, however most of the service ones are not assembly line correct, but second choice would be the American Designers one is nice.

Also, I don't believe some of the Ford service tanks had a drain plug.

That is absolutely correct... and makes me wonder what the rationale is when folks on ebay bid them up to over $500 each.

The Spectra tanks seem to be the closest match to original.  You just have to remove the zinc dichromate from the fastening ring where the sending unit attaches.
