My friend just purchased a 1969 rs BB, 4spd car. Question is the car has some kind of cansiters (2) on rear inner wheel wells inside trunk. What are they and where might we find parts or assembly drawings?
They are refered to as "cocktail shakers" and are used on convertibles as body dampening ballast... The factory assembly manual has some info on them... There is a small typo in the quanity of fluid they hold though...
DjD, these are not shakers. Lot smaller and attached to wheel wells not to trunk extensions. They have tubing which runs to front of car below steering column ( left side). Maybe connecting to some type of switch? Thanks Matt
They are hydraulic dampeners designed to cancel some of the torsional vibration converts generate due to a more flexible body structure than a coupe. There should be 2 more in front, bolted to the core support on each side. The front dampeners are often missing and can be tough to find.
Now I got it-these are liquid tire chain dispensers, option V75. It's an aerosol sprayed on the rear tires that was supposed to improve traction in slippery weather. Very rare, only 188 sold but was also available as a retofit accessory.
