Just curious...
I would like to add a Coolant Recovery Tank to my 69 Camaro and since these cars did not come with them,
I'm trying to figure out what will fit.

If you must have one... use an extra wiper washer bottle mounted in the position a RS would have it... Passenger side inner fender...

See it on the left of the engine compartment?

That's not a bad idea.... it has the OEM look to it.
Thanks.

That's what I had in my car - before I start tearing it apart for the resto.  Looked like it belonged there and work like it too.

My buddy made a bracket to utilize a Heineken can.

I did like 1stgen--but I attached mine next to the radiator on the radiator support with an OEM bracket. Works like a charm.

The battery is next to the radiator... the car in the photo is a RS so that is not the overflow that is the washer bottle...

My battery is in the trunk. Frees up a lot of room.

My car has a plastic soda-pop bottle. Just slipped in next to the radiator end tank. Fits and no bracket required.
