Just picked up a 64 Malibu. I have this square bottle about 10 inches long under my hood. It's located on the forward side of the wheel well, and is mounted in a bracket. No it's not the windshield washer bottle, thats plastic. It isn't hooked up to anything. Any ideas what it is for(oil, moonshine, etc)???? Thanks again.

Are you sure it's not triangular?

Back in them days they mounted a glass bottle under the hood which contained window washer concentrate.

If it is the correct bottle, hang on to it. Original ones are getting rare and the repro's are expensive. ($30-40 dollars I think)

Bob,
That's what I'm thinking. It's the bottle for extra washer fluid.
If that's what it is Jake, HANG ON TO IT!

Buddy of mine used to keep gas in this bottle. When he'd run out of gas, weekly, it was handy to prime the carb with. "Safety first" wasn't his motto, I guess.

They reproduce the labels and the lids.

Pretty neat looking colored label and the cap has wording on it (I believe) as well.

Check our sponsor for availability.

Thanks. Len

Best bets are
#1-keep moonshine in it or
#2-sell it.
These look tacky in a muscle car.Perhaps OK in a trailer queen
