Based on the dimentions of 48 x 18 x 18, it would calculate out to 67.3 Gallons.

Figuring on displacement from substrate, would be 65 Gal

just checked "All-Glass" site

The tank dimentions you mentioned were not on there, but there was a 48 x 18 x 20 which is a 75 Gallon so 2" shorter would make it ~70 Gal.
