Iirc, the '68 bag was different from the other years. With A/C, I think they were mounted on the driver side fender, behind the horn relay, and are a pita to fill, since it sits up under the fender lip. If you have the radiator surge tank, the washer bag is definitely on the driver side. Without the surge tank they were on the passenger side, if memory serves....

That's the way mine is.  72 A/C LT-1.  I haven't filled the washer bag in years.

well thanks for the input but if Adam is correct then the bag that rraider1 is showing is incorrect and I'm still not sure about location I did find what looks like a hot water bottle in the fender well on the passenger side .The type that ford used in some vehicles in The 60s

My '68 w/air washer bag is on the passenger side inside fender well, hooked to two clips on the inside upper wheel well.  I fairly certain I have the original the bag.  It is logoed with the chev bowtie, and has a windshield emblem at the top of the bag.  Hope this helps.

Yes, it is exactly like the first link Bob posted above the '68 with air.  The last link showing the bag with the logo is exactly like mine.  It is tucked up out of the way, a bit tight, but that is how they were built.

The bag may be mounted in different locations, mainly according to A/C or not, and whether or not the vehicle has the aluminuminum surge tank for the radiator. With A/C and without the surge tank it should be on the pass side, but with the surge tank there is no room on the pass side, so it goes on the driver side. Several variables on where the thing is mounted, and how. I'll see if I can get a pic of the different locations this evening when I get home.
The presence of the surge tank depends on the engine installed, which dictates what radiator is used.

Hi Edward...  that is the same as my '68.  they did not put the expansion tanks on the SB air conditioned cars in '68.... at least as far as I have read.   But then I have found out that most anything could have happened during a build!  Nothing too much is written in stone about these cars!

No problem Bob... I see you are from Woodland, I grew up just down the freeway in Vancouver!  Had our 40th class reunion there a couple weekends ago.  Thanks for all your posts!

The L88 was the ONLY engine in '68 with the expansion tank, so the washer bag would be on the passenger side on all cars in '68. The A/C cars did use the bag, and non-A/C cars had a plastic bottle.....or so the book says. Thumbs Up
