This is the only picture I have. It looks like there's a vertical piece with a strap around the top of the can.

Never noticed that, wonder if it hooks or bolts onto the running board?

My garage: Restored Old Henry, and have had this WC51 on the road around 3 years now... Currently finishing a brace of Ben Hur trailers, and starting a 67 Galaxie fastback. Concurrent with the WC I restored a 74 TR6... Oh the joys.

They show up, from time to time, as well as the square USAAF ones...

YAY!

I just found a round 10 gallon can, dated 19-10-38. Its full of water, and the plugs are rusted shut. (So if anyone wants pre-radiated water, for that absolutely correct restoration, contact me!)

Its a NESCO.
