Where's the best place to buy a replacement windshield washer reservoir for my 1965 Barracuda?

I bought mine from Jim's Auto Parts but a lot of evbc members don't like him because he gouges us. I've seen them on ebay for cheap and I know Layson's has them (but they gouge too).

I'm a real ebay fan, but it's not for everyone.

Is a '67-69 Dart washer reservoir the same? I have a nice one in with the large collection of Dart parts I just bought.

I looked at a restored 1969 Barracuda Formula S at a car show today and the reservoir looks the same as the one used on my '65 Barracuda.

I'll check it again and compare to my own in my Barracuda (which I bought a few years back from Jim's). A good friend of mine might need it so I'll have to just check with him first, then get back....

Well my extra washer reservoir is no good, it's broken. Must have gotten crushed when I moved everything to my place, under a wheel or door or something. Sorry about that...

I think I bought mine from Layson's way back when, and I'm pretty sure they bring some to Carlisle.

Interesting enough, when you pick up parts in person @ Jim's the prices are a few bucks higher. The explanation I got when I asked about the price difference was that "I guess the website hasn't been updated yet. This is the price that was listed on our invoice."

I offer my two cents because Jim's is where I purchased my washer tank as well.
