I removed my 68's last summer and it is really easy. I waited till there was hardly any gas left in it before I removed it. Then you remove the two nuts that hold the straps, loosen the filler tube thats accesable by removing the license plate(69 may be different, I can't remember), and slowly dropped the tank. When the tank is down far enough disconect the fuel line and sending unit wires and your done. I purchsed new straps becuase my originals were rusted.
I just did my '68, piece of cake. siphoned all the gas out, crawled under and dropped it on my chest. it don't weigh nothin'. '69 has the cap under the plate, right? you'll have to wiggle it a little more to get it free. If you disconnect the wire inside the trunk and push the grommet out, it won't be dangling by the wire. Mine the wire was glued under the center antisquek strip so it was good that i got it all the way loose. don't forget to unscrew the ground wire, its on the pass side of the floor just in front of the tank.
