Default 1994 Mustang GT Coolant overflow tank issues

One of the many previous owners of my 1994 GT for some reason decided to ditch the coolant overflow jug and leave a coolant spitting hose to nowhere in the engine bay. I am looking at an overflow tank on ebay for approx $48 and $8 shipping. Is this all I will need? Is there a support plate, hardware, sensor, etc I would need to purchase as well? Thanks for the help.

not only do you need the overflow bottle , you need the overflow bottle cap and low coolant sensor that goes on that bottle, theres a plate that holds the control module called the ccrm and it gets bolted to the clip thats on the top of bottle..theres also a small metal plate at bottom of radiator to the left that has a small slit in it. the overflow bottle has a tab on the bottom that sticks down in that slit...

Dude go to a junk yard!! you'll get everything you'll need and then some for 50 bucks!

I wouldnt buy a jug (used) on e-bay your running the risk of it having a crack and being stuck with a junk bottle!

I'm in the chicagoland area and we just got approx 10" of snow hahaha. Do you know of any good parts yards or possibly some way I could find one in my area? I've never gone to one before.

Also, the jug i found on ebay is new and has a 30-day warranty...But the price seems a tad steep if I could find what I need for $50...

If i dont hav the sensor installed, wouldnt i see a reading on my dash or something? Then again, I've never had it scanned so maybe thats where the reading would show up...Also, what control module? I'm guessing I don't have one...where would I get it? Pictures of the entire setup would be very appreciated. Thanks guys!

My jug got a crack in it where the plastic pin goes in the lower metal bracket...bad design IMO ...anyway I unplugged the wiring harness from the sensor cause I didn't want to see low coolant light and it worked... so if yours is unplugged it will have no light.
Somewhere I seen cool aluminum overflow tanks.
