I have check with the common mustang parts suppliers and no one seems to carry an oem/aftermarket overflow tank replacement. Anyone have any leads??

71-73's didn't have an overflow tank. The excess would vent onto the roadway....

I have seen a few cars that recycle old fire extinguishers to use as an over flow tank and they look pretty good. A nice stainless steel thermos or drinking bottle does a good job also.
Yeah, the overflow tube just vents out to the ground near the grille.
if your using an overflow tank remember to buy a radiator cap that is designed to work with an overflow tank.
the regular rad cap is not meant to be used with an overflow tank so it won't suck in coolant from the tank if needed, it will just vent to the tank if the rad starts to overheat.
Yeah its funny. The first time after i topped off my radiator and got it nice and hot it spit all over the driveway. I was losing my mind. Then I realized it didnt have an overflow anyways.
