My stock of rusted AC vacuum collector tanks from 68 and 72 Stangs is growing, and (assuming at least one is original) they all look like old tomato cans. Are these the real deal? NPD sells them at $60, and the photos in their catalogue look like old tomato cans too. Can I fabricate one of these for under a dollar and still be original?
Thanks!
Simon

I thought of Del Monte orange juice, but they're a little large. But we're on the same page.
What fruit canning company did Ford have a deal with???

Almost missed this one!! You're right and 65/6's have excellent 'movements!. Conversely, the 70's use the empty STP cans giving the constipating bogged down, lethargic performance.
