my '73 GT has(had) a plastic coolant reservoir bottle wire-bread-tied (OEM... I think NOT ;) ), hanging low in nose next to carbon filter.

I'm suspecting it's not a GT bottle as it doesn't appear to have a proper home down there... & is just too big to hang (has a 1-hole mounting tab molded into top) anywhere else under the lid.

Anyone know of pic links that'd show what I should be seeing?

Thanks-
Dan

Unless I'm wrong, a stock '73 wouldn't have had any coolant overflow container. Just an overflow hose routed towards the ground. Probably an aftermarket one that a previous owner fashioned in there? I did work a small aftermarket one into the nose of my '70 in a different place than that though.

I purchased the smallest aftermarket coolant recovery kit bottle I could find, and oddly enough mounted it very close to where 72 GT's less expensive version is mounted! differance being in a pinch for cash his would be worth deposit return money, mine would be worthless. :D

Beer Can

I have a 2 liter bottle on mine :lmao:. I always wondered why people laughed at it at car shows! But its a great way to moniter how much coolant your radiator is spitting out. And a zip ties go nicely around the neck of the bottle.
