Can anyone tell me if a 71 had a radiator overflow bottle? I can't find one in my parts catalog. It looks like the a past owner used the windshield washer bottle for the radiator overflow. It is mounted behind the headlight on the drivers side.

you are correct ---- that "plastic bottle" IS THE Windshield - Washer bottle.

you do not need an over-flow radiator bottle ------------
unless, you want one. Then just buy/find one from another Chevy
.... to fit your needs.

Thanks Jim. I remembered my 73 and 72 just had a tube going down the side of the radiator for overflow.

Look at your "valve - cover" ..... by u'r "chrome cap" .......

that "open breather hose" ....... you may need to watch that -- you may blow - oil out there.
you can plug that hose and just install a "breather cap" on your valve cover. cheep fix.
