    Anyone seen one of these before? It came fitted to my 69 Dart Custom. Appears to be an aftermarket part that connects to the radiator overflow pipe.

      I have a very similar bottle in my 67 today. I had to relocate one horn to mount it where I wanted.

          Thanks for the info. Yes, it’s cleaned up and refitted!

            It will function better mounted as high or higher than radiator. There isn't enough vacuum/draw to pull coolant back from a very low location.

              Looks like the plastic might still be OK. Few OE coolant tanks around since the plastic hardened and cracked from years of underhood heat.
