    Radiator Overflow Bottle for '65

    Radiator Overflow Bottle for '65
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello there.

    I am not sure if this is a factory item. I want the factory supplied item.

    These photos are taken on the R.H.S. (passenger side) below the seat.

    I don't see an aftermarket replacement offered anywhere.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Ian.

    nothing worse than the smell of hot antifreeze in the cab, what were they thinking? Although the gas smell from a loose carb in the doghouse might tone it down a bit.

    L.O.L.

    I bought this vehicle out of Blue River Oregon.

    And the previous owner poured me a mason jar full of moonshine to drink after we loaded it onto the trailer.

    I purchased a Dorman universal coolant recovery tank for like $12 on ebay, and mounted it on the inside of the front of the doghouse with a couple of bolts.

    There are lots of aftermarket options that can fit inside the dog house.

    Though the overflow can was not factory to the 1st gen I recommend it because its easier on the environment, reduces smell, reduces the stains in your parking spot, saves money on coolant and the cooling system just works best being full all the time.

    Most dogs find the taste of antifreeze irresistible. Just a couple of ounces of ethylene glycol can be fatal. It's a slow, miserable death, too, as their liver, kidneys and other organs shut down. If your system allows it to just drain onto the ground, please fix that.

    Advice well taken. Moonshine good... anti freeze on ground bad.

    Will work on this.

    Snow on the ground here right now.

    Thanks!
