I had a link to sheets of material on E Bay to cut out gaskets, but I lost the bookmark. Anyone got the link?

You basically only need a sheet of fuel resistant rubber. I have one left that worked great for my 60 Fury xx years ago. If you want I can measure the thickness, so you know what to buy. IIRC it was 2mm, that is around 5/64".

Surprisingly I couldn't find any affordable Nitrile sheets on Ebay.com! Found this on Ebay UK:

If the gasket has the correct thickness (crush) no sealer is needed.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-1956-1957-Chevy-195D-FUEL-GAS-TANK-SEN... seem to be Cork-Nitral. So the Chevy is the same as Mopar? Interesting.

Use Viton rubber, will withstand modern fuel and ethanol.
The right thickness is important, so measure with cardboard. Apply a thin layer of silicone grease. No sealer needed.

The correct measurements for '60 Chrysler is Ø 75mm X Ø 51mm X thickness 1,5mm) (Ø 2.9500" X Ø 2" X thickness .0600")

Check and confirm
