1917-1923 Model T Flat Tube Core Radiator

Price  $799.00 

Product Description

If you are building a speedster or a car that will be used in parades on 100-degree days, we recommend our more efficient flat-tube core. The elongated "flat" tube core design increases heat transfer surface area and provides improved cooling capacity.  Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the fitment of 100 year old caps.  Aftermarket caps are test fit and available for ~$20.

Features of the 1917-1923 Model T Low Style Radiator include:

  • Modern efficient copper core design with 6 fins per inch
  • 3/4" seamless weld tubes in a staggered array to disrupt airflow laterally
  • Tubes have 2.93 times the internal surface area of Ford's original design
  • Galvanized steel bar runs through lower part of core for support
  • Die stamped three piece brass top tanks with model correct die stampings
  • Drawn brass bottom tanks with relief for crank
  • Galvanized steel sidewalls to resist rust
  • Cast red brass rod support
  • Internal baffle in top tank to prevent cooling loss
  • Properly offset cast red brass inlet
  • Polished nickel plated filler neck (Chrome available upon request)
  • Hood mount tabs
  • Painted flat black to aid in heat exchange
  • Made in the USA


Ford transitioned from low style to high style halfway through 1923. Confirm your header-to-header measurement of 17" before ordering a low style radiator.
