'57 Cloud Holding tank?

I am restoring a 1957 Flying Cloud. So far I have stripped paint off all wood and hardware. now I started on the plumbing. Had to take out all the drain lines. Does anyone know if there wea ever a holding tank on a 57 Cloud built in CA? and if not can I add one? There dosn't seem to be any room for one on the bottom

Our '56 Safari was a "Park Model" meaning it had no tanks when originally built. It was intended to be hooked up at a RV Park all the time. When we got it the previous owner have retrofit in a fresh water tank so at least it could be taken on the road using golpher holes (or blue tank) for waste. I know they used it on the road quite a bit based on the underbelly condition. During our restoration we added both grey & black tanks, grey within the frame & black above the floor - so it can be done. Check out our "It's a Girl!!!" thread for more information.
