Product Description

With an OEM fin density and each fin painstakingly hand dimpled to created the "dimple" that tumbled air through the core, this

  • Galvanized steel sidewalls to resist rust

Our 1930 and 1931 Model A truck reproductions are aftermarket products.  The design is based upon original drawings provided by Ford and original radiators we have collected over the last 25 years.  Each radiator is tested with an original Ford shell to assure general fit, appropriate neck placement and accurate mounting bracket placement. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the fit, finish, design or craftmanship the radiator may be returned to us postage pre-paid in new and re-saleable condition for a refund. 


A note about "fit"

  • Commercial trucks have a deeper shell than car-based pickups which will impacts neck location and core thickness. 
  • Our necks are made to fit with original caps. Necks have a tang to guide on the cap and stop it at the lock position. It is likely to be steeper and tighter than the 80-90 years old necks found on an original radiator.model a water pipes that cause problems
  • Quails and motometers have always been an aftermarket product. Today they are made in Taiwan or China and they may not fit our neck. Some customers have reported that they die grind the cap's casting with a dremmel or file to guide the tab as it climbs the neck tang.
  • Not all waterpipes are the same which may affect the rubber hose connection. Please review the photo illustrating lower hose connections, contact us if you have an incorrect lower hose connection for your production year.
