A note about "reproduction and restoration"

Our 1932 Flathead car and truck reproduction radiator is the most authentic looking available. That being said, there are differences e.g. the neck is advanced forward to accommodate the shell neck location, sidewalls are smooth and most are made with 10 fins per inch whereas Ford used an 8 fin per inch. Each radiator is tested with an original 1932 Ford shell to assure general fit, appropriate neck placement and accurate mounting bracket placement.

If you are showing your 1932 at the highest level or seeking a Dearborn award, we can restore your radiator using your original tank and sidewalls.  Please see the restoration section for further details.

If you have any concerns about fit before you buy a radiator, contact us or send us your radiator and we will build from the radiator provided to fit your car and shell. When you receive your radiator inspect it first. If you are not satisfied, contact us to arrange a return for your money back or return it with your original radiator and we can build what you need. We only request that the radiator is in new and resalable condition e.g. clean of fluid and not damaged.
