You are right, fumes would build up and all it would take is to turn on something an there she goes. Gonna have to sit up with her for the night and get her fix tomorrow.

You'll have to inspect the fuel lines, gas tank, and carburetor for leakage. Also, make sure the vent tube on the gas tank is there and properly routed. Be sure you have the correct type of gas cap on it as well. Either vented or non-vented. Since your Mustang was made before 1971 (1970 for California Emissions vehicles) you don't have an EVAP system to worry about. The fuel system is vented to the atmosphere but you should not have any gasoline odors. If you have any possible sources of ignition such as a furnace, hot water heater, clothes dryer, etc. be sure they are kept OFF or park the car outside of the garage until this is fixed! Gasoline fumes can and will flashover!! HTH. -Jim

check the filler neck or tube that is a common area that leaks, if it has the original rubber hose then its probably time to change it , every time you fuel up some gas will seep from the leak into trunk and now there may be gas soaked partition board.
