Shall be grateful if someone will tell me from which car the Middlebridge coolant expansion tank was sourced. Also, is it used on any of the Reliant models?

Thanks Jim.
Photo's of the tank at your link seem to show rear facing mounting lug (broken?) to be in horizontal plane whereas mine, on the Middlebridge, is vertical.
