    yea i have tried them along with npd
    neither seem to have them for a 72
    both have them just for a 1970 and stop there...neither of them carry those parts for any between 1971 -1974

    Im not sure but I would think they are fairly similar. I needed a overflow tank for my 71 and used one I found in a junk yard out a late 70's model.
    I did have to drill a hole in the wheel well to mount it but it fit perfect.

    If I remember correctly, the radiator overflow jugs were not used yet in 1972. I think they came into use around 73. You can adapt any of the later Second Gen jugs to your car.

    That's correct Gary - 73 was the first year for the overflow jug.

    YearOne part # 8609N - for a 1973 - 77 Camaro.
    1973 is the 1st year for the radiator overflow. Prior to 1973 it was A-OK to puke anti-freeze on the ground.

    well i have a 72 and it was equppied with one

    so i thought it could have been an add on but I looked at the 73-77 and they dont have the same hole locations as the on eon mine and i can't seem to figure out what exactly mine came off of
