Did all 68 Shelby's have the canister hole in the battery apron whether they had tilt or not?

No. Only the tilt cars had the holes drilled for the option.

Tilt became a "mandatory" option in December 1967. Shelbys built in November and early December of 1967 did not receive the option.

I'm thinkIng that first week of December could go either way, but most were non-tilt.

Speaking of tilt cans, does anyone reproduce these cans?

Yes, they are in the catalogs, but the new ones appear slightly different, as they have ribbing on the side

Anyone have pictures of an OEM verses a repo?

Below are pictures of what I believe are the original reservoirs from #1032. Its been a while since I have had them off but I believe the one on the right is the A/C reservoir. If I have mixed them up I'm sure someone will jump in here and educate me.

You are correct. The right one is for AC, the left for tilt steering

the ribs ad strength to it. I suppose you could bondo them up and recoat them, or look on similar cars for the canister, like t bird cougar Lincoln...I made one for an old vette out of a hi- c juice can. looked great! just to p off the corvette guys, I didn't even paint it! phred

Not even the service replacement cans are the same as the assembly line cans. Looks like the assembly line cans were dipped in plasti coat or the like.
