When did the coolant bottle change?

Noticed today my 88 GTA has a different coolant recovery bottle from my 91 GTA.

Anyone know what yr they changed?

Re: When did the coolant bottle change?

They changed sometime mid-late year 88. I know of an 88 camaro and firebird formula that have the larger bottles and both of my 88s had the smaller one.

Also made a parts reseller put his money where his mouth is when he refused to believe that my 88 T/A had the smaller coolant bottle and wound up with a free replacement because of it! Didn't believe it until I popped the hood to show him.
