Anyone know of a neat aftermarket reservior that bolts on for radiator over flow for a 289 in a 1965?

http://www.rodworx.com/accessories.html is a good source. M+ sells the same exact ones for about $85. I have the 15" model on my '66 289, and it works amazingly well. You may need the special radiator cap designed to work with an overflow tank, there has been some discussion about that in the past.

Rodworx will sell you a nice chrome one, too--I think you want the 13lb model.

Hope that helps.

I'll second the opinion on the Rodworx/Mustangs Plus 15" unit. It works exactly as intended, and I didn't need a special radiator cap.

Here's some pix of it installed:

Pretty Install. I had to move mine over 6" (over the VR) to get out of the way of My AC discharge hose. Mine works great, too, and no special cap.
