I recently restored a Gibson Hawk, which has the same reverb circuit etc. The tank in mine was a short one, not the original. I believe the original is a Gibbs, but I don't know how to interpret the numbers on those to be able to buy one on ebay. A lot of the ones from organs won't work because the impedances are too low. Anyway, the short tank in mine is Accutronics 1FB2A1B. The "long" tank with the same impedances is 8FB2A1B. The Fender ones are much lower input impedance.

So in summary, I believe an Accutronics 8FB2A1B will match the original in your minuteman.
