your bike is a 'b' frame(paint scheme is for a 'bc' model). the other pictures are of a 'c' model-note top bar is different. also the down tube(head to crank) is different on your bike from the 'c' pictured. I am going to take a wild guess your frame is a 1940/1 based on the seat clamp I can see.

Yours looks like a BC to me. Not a C model like the pic you posted with a tank. I’m sure someone will be able to nail it down for you, so you don’t make a costly mistake.

as for the 'gilled tank' depicted.....I am going to go with artist rendering. there are many such 'errors' in Schwinn ads. the worst was a clamp tank(1940/1) with hanging straps! although I think a 'bc' style 'ranger'(paint scheme) tank was found recently at one of the meets. it had gills instead of the two half circle sound holes on the bottom. extremely rare!

Tank and light is gonna be pricey and hard to find. I’d find fenders for it first and then see if you want to put the 1k plus into it to get it fully equipped with the rack, tank, light etc.
