Correct washer bottle color

Can anyone shed some light on which is correct for a 68?? Black or white? Ames lists both colors for the same year. Zazarine shows a picture in the restoration guide...it is white. Does it have to do with early or late production code?? Thanks

IMO: When in doubt go with Zazarine.

The pertinent questions.. what assembly plant was the '68 built in, and when was it built? Sorry, but the closer one gets to 1970 models, the less faith I have in the 30 year old "GTO Restoration Guide"

Next, 6t8goat, would suggest finding someone who is very well versed documenting and restoring '68's to a very high level. I can think of Kurt in MN and Paul Friese, both over on PY board. Kurt has numerous long term '68 GTO projects mothballed, and is fairly anal. Paul has a bunch of '68's, owns a Pontiac restoration shop, and is one of the Concours judges at GTOAA Nats.
