    The thrill of the hunt is always interesting what you may find. I just found an NOS 73-4 B-body Overflow bottle. IMO these are rarer than the 72 B-body set-ups as I have had 4 of those NOS over the years and never even saw one of these NOS. So what have you found?

    Dang, that's the one thing I wasn't able to find when I did my restoration. Is it for sale?

    I just picked up an NOS airgrabber/ramcharger actuator w/bracket. I haven't seen an NOS one since I bought one in the summer of 78!!

        Was not an option at the time, but picked up a NOS power antenna conversion kit that was probably meant for a C Body--dealer install. It will stay in the box until I figure out how to adapt it to the existing curved factory fender hole for the manual antenna in my '72 SSP.

        I have always wondered if one needs to modify the cooling system somehow to add those overflow bottles, a different radiator cap or a different radiator filler neck?

          Last Christmas, finally found the Washer bottle for 73-74 WITH speed control. They're like hen's teeth.

            Are the later washer bottles dated?........Matching a dated version would be near impossible to find......So if they are dated and the date doesn't match in the appropriate range of the build date then the part is still incorrect.

            Still any NOS part is ideal over any reproduction part.........NOS water bottles are near impossible to find and in all respects that is a great score....

            You'd think it would be the other way beings that is was an option in 72 and standard in 73.

            no modifications
            oe radiators all had the provision for a overflow hose
            they used to just let them puke on the ground from a hose run down the side of the rad
            before the overflow bottles came along

              Apologies, it was not NOS ... but here are the only #s on it. Interestingly enough the catalog part number is 3431965

              Exactly but then after I wrote what I did I thought about it. 72 was an option so only cars that had it used them and I am sure they made a bunch therefore leaving a bunch that remained in stock. Now going into 73 everyone had one therefore everyone "replaced" them as they all had them depleting the stock making them harder find now.... It's the first one I ever saw....

              Within the last year I found a set of NOS resonator tips for my car. I won't post price but was extremely cheap. Also years ago when I started my restoration, I bought NOS taillights $80 for the pair, and they had gaskets in the boxes and NOS front spoilers for $35 pr and a 70 NOS Airgrabber switch for $35 and I gave it to my friend. It is currently in his 71 RR. It looks wrong since it has a red handle. I bought all that from Dale Tuel of Dale's Cuda Shop i think it was mid to late 90's.

              When I put the bottle away, I found I had an Nos radiator cap to go with it. It was in the wrong factory box which I remember the guy had no clue what it was for when he listed it on e-bay..

              Yeah I seen the resonators and didn't hesitate. I was skeptical cause the price was almost too good to be true. I figure when they'd arrived I would have a set of repops someone put in old Chrysler boxes but they're legit :)
